What We Offer
Before the pandemic, more than 300 parents and a similar number of children have parrticipated in BrightStart. We have resumed BrightStart in a new format. Here is a a description of what you can expect at BrightStart.
BrightStart™ is a fun experience for the whole family. Parents who are expecting, or have a child 4 years old or younger and older children up through 8 years old are invited. Other care-givers are also welcome! BrightStart is a family time; it's a place to create memories and bonds and to learn in new ways. It is a shared family experience in our local community, where children see familiar faces and the families can build a supportive group of peers.
Our modified Learn & Play Children’s Program is play-based and offers infants through 4 year olds opportunities to learn and have fun while developing listening and attention skills. BrightStart™ is offered by Building Healthy Families, a nonprofit organization in Manchester, CT. The workshop location is not finalizaed at this time. The morning is full of learning and activities for parents and children.
Our Fall 2022 BrightStart will be in-person at a location in Manchester.
When you join the contact list you will receive information about the start date for BrightStart and an opportunity to enroll. BrightStart is offered free of charge. Families receive a children's book or toy each week as well as free diapers every week.
