Mayor Bowser Announces Child Care Provider at Thaddeus Stevens Early Learning Center

(Washington, DC) – Today, Mayor Muriel Bowser announced that Bright Beginnings (BBI), a community organization with a long history of providing high-quality comprehensive services to young children and families who are furthest from opportunity, will be the infant and toddler care provider at Thaddeus Stevens Early Learning Center in Ward 2. The Bowser Administration is transforming the former Stevens School into a District of Columbia Public School (DCPS) early learning center with pre-K3 and pre-K4 classes, as well as a child care center for infants and toddlers ages 0 to 3.

“It is particularly rewarding that with this first learning center, we are returning Stevens School to the community as a facility serving our youngest learners,” said Mayor Bowser. “The Stevens Learning Center represents both our commitment to families as well as our commitment to equity. Demand has grown for high-quality child care and early education opportunities, and through this partnership with Bright Beginnings and many others, that is exactly what we are delivering across all eight wards.” Read more here.
