This is one of the best centers in 38128 with affordable rates and quality care. We stand on the foundation that everyone wants good care for their family but sometimes can't afford it. We have some if not the lowest rates around. Yale Road is a 3-star facility according to the Department Child Services. We take pride in our business, the families we serve, our staff and our facility. And only hire and retain the best. We want each and every family who walk thru our doors to feel like they belong here. We are highly organized and professional with over fifty years of combined early childhood experience between our administrative staff and our management. We take pride in keeping a very clean facility. People who we employ and keep on have proven time and time again they deserve to be a Yale Road member thru their work ethics, dependability, flexibility, knowledgable, professionalism and by their daily interactions with the children and families we serve. We have been open for over a year and have seen many not 12 employees come and go. You can't make them stay but you can hold them accountable for their actions. Only the ones who stay believe in themselves. The childcare industry is very demanding and challenging. In this line of work only the strong stays. Employees must be able to adhere to our policies and procedures ( employee handbook), actually show up for work, be punctual, be ready to work, be flexible from 6:30-6:30, be a team player. Most importantly, be able to educate our youth by following our curricula and keep our facility clean. Employees who are fly by night workers can't do those things mentioned above. They interview well, have great ideas but show little to no actions, once hired. Therefore, it they don't fit into Yale's program. They must move on. We have had some to quit, some to call-in repeatedly, be a no show when scheduled or think this is simply a baby sitting service that requires seating long periods of time, just to name a few. Yale is a center of learning through explorations, interactions, exposure with qualified, bonified hardworking educators who are lead by competent managers, leaders and an owner, who all collectively have a desire to bring up a generation of scholars. We have an open door policy and welcome the community to our facility to take a tour, ask questions, observe and to see it for yourself. Thank You! The Owner

My child attended this facility from October 2014 until July 2015. The women were nothing but kind and sweet to her. Her teachers kept her engaged and routinely sent me home with practice work to assist in preparing her for kindergarten, which she was more than prepared for. I did not have any issues with my daughter repeatedly coming home sick or with rashes as other parents have complained about. Now as to the high turnover rate, I know that the management team ran a tight ship, which anyone who owns a small business must, and as the saying goes one bad apple can ruin a bunch so why wait! I am not employed or related to anyone at the learning center. PS for those concerned with forms of payment..Why don't you all research how much it cost to run a daycare and think about how much you pay for that care, then divide that up by 5. Out of that children must be fed, rent paid, utilities, payroll, insurance, maintenance, equipment, etc. Remember vouchers aren't accepted everywhere
I recently enrolled my child at The Bright Ideas on Hilshire Circle and here's my honest review: They do a really good job overall, much much better than two other places I tried before. They really care about ALL the kids and it's a bigger than average facility, but you still get that "small " preschool feeling bc the children are divided into their own individual classrooms. This is not a daycare babysitter type place, it's a fun bright happy preschool. I really like the Director, she greets us every time we pick up and she's very involved in all aspects, not just "mgmt" stuff, I think she literally knows all kids by name and parents. I like that. The ASst. Director is a sweetheart. The teachers are teachers, not daycare workers and they take ownership of your child. Its so hard to find a good place for your child, but this is one of the good ones. They aren't perfect, but they sure try hard and definitely care. Ive already reserved my spot for fall. Very happy parent.
I wouldn't suggest this daycare to anyone. Not only are they unprofessional but they are unorganized. Please do not be fooled by the warm welcomes and smiling faces. The turn over rate of employees is horrible. Their inability to keep a set team of staff members is deplorable. My son attended and within the first 6 months I had personally seen 12 employees come and go and having worked in the childcare field it is definitely not a good look to have gone through so many employees and have to meet a new teacher every other month. If you want what's best for your child/ren please go the consistent route. Kids need stability and consistency not a new person every month. It makes me wonder not about the employees but the management and why they can't seem to attain a dependable and consistent staff.
Bright Ideas is the BEST! The Director, Memrie is always nice, friendly and approachable. She goes out of her way everyday for the children and parents. You can tell she loves what she does. The Staff at Bright Ideas also carry the same loving enthusiasm, you can tell the bar is set high and all of the teachers rise to the high bar. They love their children and treat them as their own. This Center is Run well and has high standards that are upheld in all they do! Highly Refer!!
In my 55+ years of life I have never before seen a child care facility like this one. The staff has been there for YEARS! Unheard of, right? These people love the children, genuinely helping them as they develop as well as helping to coach those rookie parents and encourage them too! My nephew attends there. I am thrilled his parents found duch terrific people to watch over him during the day.
I have been an employee of Bright Ideas for 14 years and I love Bright Ideas. Not only is it a great place for little children but a great place to work. Bright Ideas helped me to continue My education while I educated preschoolers. I now have my Masters in Early Childhood Education. Thanks Bright Ideas.
My daughter is 2 and hasn't left my side since birth. The staff made this transition such a breeze! You would think we all are related, such loving and caring people. My baby comes in and leaves out with a smile everyday!!!
Great place for children to learn and grow. Mrs. Audra is a loving ,nurturing provider who gives the children everything they need to learn and grow and to help them become people of great character.
