The Bright Beginnings Early Learning Center is licensed under the NYS Office of Children and Family Services to provide quality childcare for children between the ages of 18 months and 5 years of age. We offer full and half day care slots as well as 2, 3 & 5 day options. The Bright Beginnings program promotes social interaction, developmentally appropriate activities and practices and age appropriate self-help abilities. All of this is accomplished in a nurturing environment and in partnership with the child’s family.
In an effort to minimize the spread of COVID-19 (coronavirus), The Office for People With Developmental Disabilities (OPWDD) has directed all providers to temporarily suspend operations of site-based day programs beginning March 17, at 5:00 p.m. At The Arc Jefferson – St. Lawrence, these closures include our Day Habilitation sites and Prevocational programs. Additionally, in Jefferson County we have closed our preschool program until April 20, 2020; when we will reevaluate and follow the guidance of the State Education Department.
