Our Story

We provide a wide range of professional services to meet your needs. We promise to provide every service with a smile and to your highest level of satisfaction.

Our History

The owner, Susan DeLoach, obtained her Early Childhood Education degree in the early ‘80s. She opened her first childcare center shortly after that and has operated successful programs in Oregon and Alaska ever since.

Our curriculum has been developed in-house to reflect our belief that play and the freedom to explore, provide children with the opportunity to develop intellectual, language, and motor skills.

Our goal is to guide our employees to successfully aid each child to develop self-discipline and to learn healthy patterns of interaction with others. Above all, we aim to maintain a warm and accepting atmosphere where children can enjoy themselves.

“The mission statement says it all”


The mission at Bright Beginnings Early Learning Center is:

To encourage children to develop to their full potential by fostering friendships, promoting positive self-esteem, and encouraging positive attitudes toward learning in a safe, warm, and accepting environment.
