Bright Star Country Day School

At Bright Star, your child discovers him/herself and the joys of learning in a happy, secure and totally non-competitive atmosphere.
We encourage creativity and curiosity. As the children begin to explore the mysteries of the big, beautiful world around them, an excitement is created which is the foundation of learning.
We believe in letting each child work individually, at his or her own pace.
Individualized attention is given to those who have special needs.
The emphasis is on understanding. Our method is: let the child show you, so you know he/she knows.
We truly live by our motto: "every child is a Bright Star on the horizon of tomorrow." The most important part of our program is guiding each child in building a solid foundation of self-esteem and confidence, from this, other good things will naturally flow: healthy personal traits such as independence, responsibility and maturity, good social habits such as friendliness, kindness, cooperation and communication.
