I have been with Bright Smiles Daycare for about four months now and have been pleased. So far while working with this service, I have been communicated with daily through written reports about my child and through text messages when needed. This has made it very convenient for me as a working parent to know that the owner takes time to contact parents about their little ones. The owner Rami is a knowledgeable and caring person who takes pride in building relationships with all the children that she cares for. Her experience in working with babies 2 and under really shows. As a first time mom I was nervous about having my baby start daycare but since they have been with Bright Smiles they have been learning growing and progressing beautifully-I couldn't have asked for a better learning facility. I see how the daycare got it's name! Keep up the good work!

I would recommend Bright Smiles Daycare to anyone!!! My daughter had a home sitter until she was 16 months, so we were nervous about starting daycare. Rami and her staff were very understanding, patient, and accommodating. They treated my daughter like their own. I can tell my daughter is happy there. Ms. Tammy, Ms. Karen, and Ms. Yolanda have all been wonderful!

When I was looking for childcare, I became so overwhelmed. My children were special needs and required additional services. When I would meet with childcare centers, it never seemed to be the right fit. When I first met with Rami, I knew without a doubt my kids were in good hands. Rami and her staff created individual plans for both of my sons to ensure they were able to meet the goals to help get them developmentally on track. All of our service providers (physical therapist, speech therapist and occupational therapist) raved about the service she provided for the children. Some of the service providers even said that they didn't think their services were needed because of all of things Bright Smiles provided. I am forever indebted to Bright Smiles for giving my children the tools they needed to thrive! They are reading, writing and surpassing their classmates in many areas!

Rami and her staff are patient which is important for me because I will always be engaged and concerned about my kids well being. If I ever have a concern Rami listens without frustration. I am over protective of my kiddos and Rami has made the transition to daycare an easy process. Plus she was able to take them at an early age as my youngest started when he was just a little over 3 months. If you are looking for good listeners and patient staff Bright Smiles is the way to go.

I highly recommend Bright Smiles Daycare. My son attended Bright Smiles Daycare since from 3 months to 3 yrs old. The care that he received from Ms. Brown and her staff helped him grow into a happy inquisitive boy. As an infant, he always returned home as happy as he was when he arrived. He was completely potty trained by 2 yrs old. Now, at three he knows how to count to 20, write his name, geography and days of the week and primary colors in both English and Spanish. Yoga classes and tumbling have helped develop his gross motor skills. As a first time mother and a nurse I would choose Bright Smiles again for my son!

As parents, we want our children to have the best of everything. For me and my husband, we wanted to ensure that our daughter started out with an exceptional academic foundation. We believed then (and still do) that a strong educational foundation is one of the keys to success. Kaitlyn started at Bright Smiles Daycare at six months old, and we will forever be grateful to the BSD family for providing that foundation for academic achievement. Kaitlyn was doing so many things before "the book" said she could. She was completely potty trained by 18 months. At 2, she was writing her name, counting backwards, sounding out all her letters, and so much more. We are some of Miss Rami's biggest fans, and we HIGHLY recommend Bright Smiles Daycare. It's the absolute BEST place for your child. All of the teachers are caring, passionate educators who believe nothing is impossible for your child. Kaitlyn is living proof of that!

My daughter began at Bright Smiles at just 6 months and remained there until she was 4! To say that Rami and her staff is excellent is an under statement! I have never felt more comfortable and satisfied with a service in my life. My daughter was fully toilet trained at 1 1/2, she could write and spell her name at 2, and was always challenged and encouraged to do her best. The foundation provided here has prepared my baby girl for her primary years. I highly recommend Bright Smiles for your child care needs!

I could not have asked for a better caregiver/educator for my only child. My daughter has been under Ms Rami's care for four years and my expectations have been surpassed. As a first time mom, I was reluctant to leave my baby girl with ANYONE. However, Ms Rami assured me my daughter was in good hands. My little one awakes each morning with a thirst for knowledge and an eagerness to conqur the world. Under the care of BSDC my daughter is performing at a kindergarten level in pre-k. She can write her first and last name, count to 100 by ones and tens, she knows all of her colors in both English and Spanish, she knows the sounds to all of the alphabet and can blend words (early reading skill), she is also adding by ones and twos - for example 8 plus 2. There is so much to rave about! I absolutely would recommend this faculty to EVERYONE.

I've been with Bright Smiles Daycare for over 5 years! My boys love it there and they are well taken care of! Miss Rami is great, she provides a loving environment, reliable care, and an excellent academic curriculum! I had a feeling about her when we first interviewed there and my gut was correct! We've been with her since!

Bright Smiles Daycare is a blessing. We absolutely love them!! My daughter attended BSDC for 2 years. The director and staff of wonderful women take the time to develop meaningful relationships with the children while also developing their knowledge and talents. My daughter was always excited about "school" and would speak about the ladies often. When she moved on to "big girl school" she was more than prepared for the transition!! Thank you Bright Smiles!

My daughter was at Bright Smiles from age 1 to 4 and I could not have asked for a better experience for her! From Potty Training Boot Camp (which I still tell people about) to the programs such as Spanish and gymnastics to the learning garden to the professionalism and genuine care and high expectations. I recommend Bright Smiles to all that are looking for Day Care. My child was ready for kindergarten when she left. Great foundation!

Bright Smiles daycare is absolutely the best daycare around! My son attended this daycare at 7months and stayed there until he was ready to enter preschool at age 3. He was BEYOND ready for preschool. Excellent knowledge of letters, numbers, colors, etc. now 8 yrs later my daughter is attending Bright Smiles. She is 1 yr old and has been counting to 3 since 10 months. Ms Rami takes care of these children like they are her very own. I have no worries about my daughter while I'm working. I know she is well cared for!

As a working mother with an infant I knew EXACTLY who would care for him upon my return to work - BRIGHT SMILES DAYCARE! The caring and knowledgeable staff went above and beyond to make the transition seamless. As a nervous new mom they put my mind at ease. From teething to potty training, we partnered as my son grew. That was in 2010, fast forward to 2015 and my son is still in the care of BSDC learning and thriving, he loves it there! Thanks to the solid academic foundation my son is prepared for pre-k. We consider BSDC an extension of our family and hope you love them as much as we do!

My daughter attended Bright Smiles Daycare from 4 months old to 5 years old and she loved it! I originally went to Rami's daycare for convenience because she was located right across the street from me but soon grew to love her and her staff. She took pride in the way she cared for my child making sure to alert me of the even the slightest things that went on throughout the day with my daughter. The most important thing to me was that my daughter was well taken care of physically and that her brain was also being stimulated from the start and Rami ensured both. Because of the educational work Rami implemented in her program and along with my work at home, my daughter entered Kindergarten reading at a 2nd grade level. I appreciate all of what Rami and her staff has done with my child and would definitely recommend her!

I loved Bright Smiles Daycare. My son was exposed to so many wonderful educational tools. Rami and her team truly care for the educational development of children. Upon moving away, I truly wished she had a franchise because my son and daughter would definitely be students of hers. If you are considering a daycare/ school for your infants or toddler, seriously consider Bright Smiles because you eill not be disappointed and your child(ren) will be equipped for the next level of education! Thanks so much Bright Smiles!!

Great place that offers a solid educational foundation that led my son to being so advanced in Pre-k that he was moved into Kindergarten. Loving staff and lovely families.
