Bright Beginnings School Age Center was originally a part of the Bright Beginnings Academy. However, in 2021 Victoria Barker sold the daycare part and started the School Age Center for school kids.
Victoria is a mom of three of her own which gave her a personal understanding to the needs of school age kids. She has a Bachelor’s degree in Elementary Education and a Masters of Education in Differentiated Instruction. She has been a classroom teacher, two of which were in Kindergarten. She opened BBA because she believes parents need a place to take their children and know they will be receiving an education experience with love and nurturing from adults that truly care about each child as their own person. She wants to provide an environment for learning and growth.
Her philosophy is:
I believe that all children deserve love, attention and nurturing. I believe that a safe environment allows children to explore and grow. At BBSAC, we allow children to have hands on learning experiences. This fosters age appropriate development. I believe that positive reinforcement is important for children to develop self-esteem. Children need an environment that supports free expression and stimulates learning. Most importantly, however, I believe that children need to have fun! Children learn best from experiencing the world around them.
At BBSAC we recognize that you have a difficult schedule and support the parents the best we can. We recognize the importance of work and the stress and demands placed on parents. We strive to make a easier on parents by giving them the knowledge that their children are in good hands.
