My son was here since he was 6 months old until the age of 4 and we love this daycare! Each staff member takes pride in their job, they love their children and teach them everything they can. Best place to take your child where they will be cared for, they will learn, and have fun.

If I knew the whole staffs name I would name but Ms. Mesh and Mr Melvin y'all are the best,
We are utterly floored by our experience here and of what we witnessed and were subjected to. The bizarre behavior, irrationality and attempts at intimidation were unconscionable. I will not air our experiences here, but welcome any private messages. No false or embellished statements in an attempt to defame the establishment will be made. Only facts, most of which are in writing from the establishment, as they occurred will be shared.Since my initial review, I have been contacted by others who had similar experiences. Negative reviews were met with harassment until they finally gave up and took them down. I am suspect of this being the reason that there is only one 1-star review on facebook and no reviews on yelp other than my own. But this is pure speculation.Note: Any attempt at coercion, harassment, intimidation through any form of contact in attempt to have me remove or alter my review as well as attempts at "black listing" with other establishments will not be tolerated and will be met with legal proceedings as well as additional reporting to, but not limited to, the Better Business Bureau and the TN DHS, Child Care Licensing Board. Feel free to contact me directly for specifics about my experience. I am still in shock from the handling and bullying involved. I simply would not recommend this facility and we are very fortunate to be going elsewhere.
I enrolled my daughter in 2015. The prices and times were great for a working parent. My daughter was initially shy and not potty trained. Within weeks she was potty trained and practically beating me to the door. I could tell that she was being well taken care of. Ms. Yolanda was the director at the time. She ensured there was a curriculum and that the staff actually followed it. My daughter learned so many great things such as numbers, alphabets, basic Spanish, and social skills. There were fundraisers for summer activities and plays throughout the year to increase the children’s self esteem. I witnessnessed the shyness leave and her maturity level increase. Mrs. Mary was her first teacher and she was great! Mrs. Brewer was her Pre K teacher and I couldn’t have been more satisfied with her teaching my child. She was very attentive, passionate, and patient in her teaching. My daughter still mentions her! Mr. Parks is the owner and you can tell when you enter the facility that he takes pride in his establishment and really cares about the children. Mr. Parks was great at listening to any issues I had - not that I had any major ones. I have dropped in since my child graduated from here and I get the same professionalism and attentiveness as I did before. The staff has changed, but overall I would recommend them.
The first time I enter the building I was greeted with a friendly smile as if that person knew me. The staff was friendly and my child became attached to the assistant director instantly, I was amazed. I enrolled my child when he was 6 weeks old and he didn't leave until he graduated to attend kindergarten. He was well-loved and educated while attending and did not want to leave. I love this daycare and would recommend to the world.
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.
Excellent staff and having it located 10 mins from downtown is awesome. Love the environment. Thank you.
I tired to give this daycare a chance overlooking the fact that it sits right here in the HOOD! The teachers at Bright Beginning are loud ratchet and disrespectful. Everytime I go do an unannounced visit the teachers are more interacting with each other than they are with the children. My 1st pop up my baby was sitting by herself on her 2ND week in a corner by herself while the other children play and the teachers engaged in their conversation, my last pop up really cut the cake. As I walked into the daycare around 12 noon I hear the teachers all laughing and talking before I make it to her classroom I hear out of no where my daughters name being called by her teacher Miss.Shun saying " You have to use the restroom again? You getting on my nerves,,then I heard her pause and then carry on saying big,,black,, round... as I heard her I walked into the class and their where five teachers in there and every face read including the loud mouth unprofessional teacher that she has been over heard by me doing the time she was trying to be funny and crack jokes on my baby,, everyone looked speechless. So of course I told her I heard her say my child's name and I knew she was talking to her but she denied it. I immediately filed my report and remove her from that HELL HOLE
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!!
Absolutely gorgeous church in the heart of midtown. midnight mass here is a spectacle. The school attaches to the cathedral is a loving, diverse school with great teachers and involved parents.
