Due to the current Arizona school closures in response to the COVID-19 epidemic, our office is currently closed to the public. We are not accepting registration packets during this time. As soon as the office reopens to the public we will again accept registration packets for the 2020-2021 school year.
Students must be four years old by August 31 of the respective year to register for the KinderBridge program. Registration forms must be completed by the parent and a $200 NONREFUNDABLE registration fee must be attached to the enrollment packet. Each student application must have an updated copy (from the doctor) of his/her immunizations attached. Hepatitis A is a requirement for childcare facilities in Maricopa County. Your child’s immunizations must show that this series has been started.
Classes will be filled on a first-come, first-served basis. Bright Beginnings School reserves the right to make any changes necessary to create full classrooms for staffing purposes. We do our very best to place everyone. All items must be turned in with a completed registration packet in order to be considered for admission. You will be notified of your child’s placement in a particular class or if your child is on the waiting list.
