At Bright Light Early Learning Center, we are focused on providing a healthy and safe environment for children to learn and grow. In light of COVID-19 health guidelines, we have updated our School Age offerings. Please see below for the great services that we’re providing as of August 10, 2020. We will update our services if the health guidelines for PA change.

First through Fifth Grade

Bright Light is now providing a full day school age program for students, grades 1-5, who will be learning online this fall. Our program will follow your child’s virtual schedule, and our teachers will assist the students with their learning.

  • We will offer a small class size to allow for social distancing.
  • We will have two classrooms available for this program, and we will limit the occupancy of each to 50% of their ordinary capacity.
  • We will use 6’ x 2’ tables, with one child on each end and a divider in the middle to allow for proper social distancing and sufficient working space.

Bright Light will assist students as they attend their virtual class. We ask that students come to Bright Light with their own laptop/iPad/tablet and noise canceling head phones with a microphone so the students can participate fully in their online classes. We ask that you provide any other school supplies your child will need. Bright Light teachers will work with the students in helping them log into their class and get set up for the day. We will offer as much assistance with learning as each student needs and we will communicate with parents daily on how their child is doing and if there are any concerns that you should follow up on.

There will also be time for recess and outdoor activities. Bright Light will provide snack for all students. Parents will supply lunch daily but will have the option of participating in a special, once-a-week lunch option. (Pizza days, Chick-fil-A, among others).

Bright Light’s goal is to make the transition to virtual learning as seamless and exciting as possible. Since our re-opening on June 8, Bright Light has been providing a safe environment for children consistent with all health and safety recommendations of the Centers for Disease Control and the Pennsylvania Department of Health. Please see our COVID-19 Policies and Procedures for more details.


Bright Light will also be offering a Kindergarten program where students will participate in their school’s online classes and then participate in Bright Light’s Kindergarten enrichment program. The children will participate in a curriculum designed to complement and reinforce the lessons they learn in school. We use curriculum guidelines from the Downingtown Area School District. We focus on reading and pre-reading skills, emphasizing the alphabet, letter sounds, and sight words. We also reinforce math and pre-math skills, such as graph fluency, number sense, sorting, shapes, measurement, and telling time. All of our programs are organized around weekly themes. Our kindergarten students will also enjoy free play as well as teacher-directed games, activities, and art projects.

Enrollment is open and is on a first come first serve basis. Spaces are limited so please email Dawn at as soon as possible.
