One of the hardest things to do as a parent is to leave your babies in the care of someone else. One of the most important decisions we make as parents is who we entrust to help us raise our children, to educate & train our children, in our absence. It is because of this that we are so thankful we found Brighton Schools. Not only do our children receive tons of love & nurturing as babies but it is combined with structure, routine, education & play later on as the children become toddlers & preschoolers. My standard for the care of my kids is high, to say the least & I can honestly say that I have never doubted that the welfare of my son & daughter are of the utmost importance to the teachers & administrators at this school. The Directors & teachers value open communication & honesty - they act with integrity & morality, things which are hard to come by in our society today. There is no better place to leave my children while I am at work than with the wonderful caring staff of Brighton Schools.
As new parents and members of the Folsom community, the idea of finding a daycare center to care for our little girl was of great concern and importance to our new family. Following an initial internet search, we quickly discovered that choosing a child’s education is not the same as finding a good restaurant.
How does this all work? What questions to ask? Unlike shopping for a new car or home, this choice impacts the very safety and development of our child.
Five years and a second child enrolled, our confidence and trust in Brighton Schools remains. Aside from what you should expect from a professional organization, the people of Brighton show passion for their work.
Thankful every day for this awesome school!!! I have been taking my kids to Brighton for ~8 years and the consistency of their routines, stability of their teachers, and the overall family feel of the school has helped ensure my kids are confident and well cared for.
I value the open communication I have with the teachers and administrators. The teachers are always quick to share little anecdotes my kids have had throughout their day and help to guide them through any behavior concerns I may have.
Both of my kids love going to Brighton and look forward to telling the teachers the exciting things they are doing in their lives. I would highly recommend Brighton Schools as a place for any child to feel safe and secure. They have made my life a lot easier over the years.
We have been so thankful that we found Brighton. My son has been at Brighton for over 4 years now, and our experience has been exceptional. When we were searching for schools, Brighton was an obvious fit for our family, and it remains that way to this day. As an infant & toddler, I appreciated how they group the children by their milestones instead of age, so they can develop at their own pace, in a safe and supportive environment. I am impressed with the staff, and their level of professionalism and communication, which has been unsurpassed in comparison with the experiences that we had with some of the schools that my daughter attended in years past. Now, my daughter attends Summer Camp at Brighton as well, and loves it.
My son loves going to school, and he flourishes in their environment. He is in Pre-K now, and comes home everyday with such an enthusiasm for what he has learned in the day, as well as his social interactions with his friends and teachers. I have the confidence of knowing that he is safe, and well cared for, and that there is always an open line of communication with his teachers and the staff. I would recommend Brighton wholeheartedly to anyone looking for peace of mind in their child's care. Thank you Brighton for your hard work, dedication, and for treating the short members of my family like your family.
Everyone who has a child understands how difficult it is to entrust their care to someone else. I cannot begin to express my gratitude for the peace of mind that Brighton Schools have given both me and my husband. My daughter has attended both Brighton on Levy and Natomas Station. This will be her 4th year attending.
We had visited many preschools before Brighton was recommended to us. From the moment that we walked in the door we knew we were in the right place. The school was bright, open and welcoming. We were encouraged to get to know the teachers and all my many questions were answered without judgment (They were even supportive of my many phone calls the first week just to check in). In the 4 years at Brighton we have never questioned our decision to place our daughter in their care and wonderful learning environment. It makes my husband and me happy to see how much our daughter loves her teachers and her friends that she has made. The teachers are warm and loving, patient and kind and the curriculum teaches the children a well-rounded mix of academics, social responsibility, and classroom decorum. I trust the staff and have made close friends with other parents. Now that my daughter is in Kindergarten, I am even more grateful for the open communication from the teachers and staff about her progress and guidance about how we can help support her at home. It was a successful transition because of all the preparation and encouragement. Thank you Brighton for providing an environment for my child to thrive not only intellectually but also in her social/emotional development as well. Thanks to Brighton , my daughter is passionate about learning! I would personally love to thank Brighton for their hard work, time, and love for my daughter. I’m thankful every day that I found Brighton.
We love Brighton! We've been a Brighton familiy for 6 years and find it hard to believe our youngest is in her last year there! We've used their daycare, pre-school, private elementary and camp options and have been been thrilled every step of the way.
I appreciate the very open and honest communication with the staff (at all levels) - such that we could share celebrations of milestones and collaborate on goals. Our kids are pretty high on the energy/personality scale, and I love that their teachers seemed to never tire of sharing the funny/creative moments and or stories from the day. As much as I like to think my kiddos are perfect - we had one or two learning pains as one would expect. I liked being informed early when a concern came to surface, and quickly working to get past it. Additionally, their Potty Training class is not to be missed! How awesome to have a meeting to proactively share expectations, and then devise a plan to get your child successfully potty trained - worked like a charm on ours!
When we chose Brighton, the safe, engaging and caring atmosphere was our primary concern. As our son got older, we were equally - if not more - impressed with the foundational instruction that also occurs. When it was time for him to move on to public school, he and his classmates from Brighton were really well prepared. Given the chance to do it all again, I wouldn't change a thing. The peace of mind they give me while I go about my workday is priceless.
I am a Grandma of a 3 year old boy. I can not say enough good things about Brlighton Schools. He has been attending the school in Granite Bay since he turned 2. The teachers are very loving and caring. I never have to worry while he is at school. The Admin Staff are verfy attentive. There is always someone at the front desk to welcome new families as well as curent families.I would whole heartedly recommend Brighton school to School. They really make you feel like family.
DO NOT TAKE YOUR KIDS HERE! NO STARS!!!!!!! – My son was a student at Brighton for all of 2 months. In that 2 months I had to sign a paper acknowledging that they notified me that four children left their classroom, unsupervised, and had been on the playground alone until a teacher from another class room saw them. I was given a false report, they told me that my son had kicked a pregnant teacher in the stomach, later I found out that that was not true, AT ALL!
I got a call from them every day about things my son was "doing wrong", although the things they told me about DAILY had never been brought to my attention at any previous school and they claimed all of his incidents were "unprovoked". At one point my son had ran out of the classroom, down the hallway, past the directors office, and out the front door, into the parking lot, before a PARENT stopped him. Not a teacher, the ones we pay to watch our children, but a parent. How safe is that? They made it sound like my three year olds fault. Is he the adult there or are they?
After removing him from the school I was notified, by another parent, that they had to report themselves to licensing after a child was left, unattended, in a classroom by their self for 20 minutes before they realized the child was not with the class. Do you know what could happen in 20 minutes?!? They also had to report that one of their teachers SMACKED a toddlers hand for spilling water on the floor! REALLY?!?!
I would truly consider how important your childs safety is before considering this school for them. I am thankful that my son no longer goes there. It was the worst 2 months of my life having him there! They got voted the best in Folsom. I'm not sure how that happened but I would not call them the best. Not even close, especially if your child has any energy at all. They prefer children who sit still and behave at all times. I don't know about you but I would prefer my 3 year old be active and not comatose.
great experiences & interactions – We've had our son & daughter there for 5 years, including private education, the before/after school program and the summer program. It offers a wide variety of experiences for the children in an atmosphere of respect and encouragement. We especially like the male role models for our son. The environment is safe, clean and fun.
Great Care – My 7 month-old son attends Brighton Schools on Levy Road. I could not be happier with the care he receives. Our son is always happy when we drop him off and seems disappointed when it’s time to leave. I was concerned that we wouldn’t be able to find someone that we could trust to watch our son, but have felt completely as ease leaving him with the care providers at Brighton. I love that each day, when we pick him up, his teachers discuss his day in detail. Though most days are great, because they are open and honest with me about his day, whether good or bad, we are able to address any concerns efficiently. I feel that they are helping us raise our son in a warm, loving environment and that they truly care about his development and well being. I don’t think there is a more perfect fit for our family.
