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.
