Bright Start Child and Family Education Center Reopening


     United Methodist Children’s Home officially announces the reopening of a familiar child care center under new management as the new Bright Start Child and Family Education Center.


     Bright Start is a Christian based child care center located at 104 S. 32nd Street in Mt.Vernon, IL.  Bright Start is now open Monday through Friday from 6:30am to 5:30pm.  Child care is provided for children ages 6 weeks to 13 years.  The facility has an infant room, toddler room, “twos” room, a room for 3-4 year olds, and a school-age room.


     “We are excited about the transition and we hope to provide an excellent service to the families in our care.  Helping your child reach their full potential and providing high quality care is our number one priority,” explains Gretchen Biggerstaff, Day Care Director.  “There will be some very positive changes over the course of 2012.  The process will take time and planning but we are committed to continue making improvements in the quality of care that we provide.”


     Bright Start Child and Family Education Center is just one of several community services provided by UMCH.  For more information, please contact Gretchen Biggerstaff at 244-2462.
