  • We love the care L. receives and the loving reception he gets every morning; it makes us very happy.  R.G.


  • Our son has been attending BrightStart pre-school for the past two years and had the most amazing time and wonderful experience there! The teachers are very dedicated, warm and welcoming so he felt safe and happy while playing with his friends, learning new things and exploring. He was very pleased every time while getting ready and would go with the big smile on his face to pre-school. Our three kids are growing up fast and we do not have any more little ones to send to BrightStart but we will make sure to recommend this wonderful establishment to everybody with small children! M.T.


  • We interviewed many facilities, and considered several options. In the end we selected BrightStart Academy because of their strong commitment to families, established community reputation and the wonderful staff who made us feel welcome from the moment we entered the building .... the daycare building is top of the line, with lots of natural sunlight, age appropriate playgrounds & colorful activities centers ... you are able to log-on to the Daycare Web-cameras to see what is going on in the classroom whenever you child is enrolled. The staff are committed to ensure each child has the specific care and attention they need...Our son loves going to daycare and we believe the socialization and structure he receives while at BrightStart is very beneficial to his development. We have recommended BrightStart to several other families with young children in our community and will continue to do this. S.G.


  • We had a very challenging time finding a secure, safe, and caring environment in which to leave our son for many hours per day.  When my wife found BrightStart in Coquitlam, we knew immediately that we had found the right fit for our family and have enjoyed 2 ½ years of exceptional care for our boys. The genuine care that the Daycare Leaders show our two children is evident every time we drop them off or pick them up.  The activities for the children are thoughtfully arranged, and our children constantly impress us with their skill development and learning.  Our children are learning great social skills ... even more importantly, our kids have fun!  E.J.


  • I wanted to express my sincere gratitude to each and every one of you for the love, care and attention you have shown to my two sons for the past 7 years. From the very first day I dropped E. off as a baby, I knew he would be well taken care of.  You all went out of your way every day to make them feel special, to hug them when they were sad, and cheer them on when they did something great. You made them feel safe and important, especially through difficult transitions in our family. As a mother, that means the world to me and I will never forget that! E.D.


  • My husband and I are so pleased with BrightStart as our son is very happy and has done so well in this environment.  The educators are caring, loving and create a warm inviting environment for children to grow.  There is a lot of natural light....there is a good combination between play, structure, education and outdoor play. T.A.


  • BrightStart understands that babies need more care and attention.  I appreciated that the teachers catered to my child’s unique needs ....I also liked the daily circle time and constant reading to the children (in the Infant program).  ...The use of emergent curriculum is not just something that is is something that is at the centre of their curriculum. Most days my daughter does not want to come home with me.  This says a lot about the quality of care she is getting. BrightStart is different from other centres because of the state of the art facilities.  There is natural light in all of the (class)rooms. N. T.


  • I believe this is the best childcare facility for my son.  The webcams are a big factor to parents ....teachers are experienced and genuinely care for the children.  They do a lot of field trips and emergent curriculum which I am very happy about. W.Y.


  • Thank you so much for running such an incredible daycare.  You have an amazing staff of women and the energy and enthusiasm they devote every day is a credit to BrightStart.  We are lucky to have found you and we are amazed to see how much M. has grown and learned during her time with the infant and toddler groups. R. & P.  H


  • .My mother yesterday was so excited to be able to see M. on the webcam. So excited she never left the computer. ... she was so taken back by the care he received. She said the ladies attending to him and other children, never were at rest. They were diligent in their attention with the children. They were constantly engaging the kids in play or reading etc. It brought her such peace of mind knowing her grandson was so well taken care of. C.R.
