Bright Beginnings is dedicated to meeting the immediate needs of children and families experiencing homelessness.
Bright Beginnings provides an Early Learning Evening Care program, which includes our comprehensive education, therapeutic and family services for parents working non-traditional hours or attending class or job training programs in the evening. Our evening care is available until 11 p.m. for children between six weeks and five-years-old and is open to any family in the District of Columbia for a fee of $40 per child, per day. Bright Beginnings accepts D.C. Department of Human Services (DHS) childcare vouchers from families living in shelters or transitional housing programs.
Our Early Learning Evening Care program is an extension of our accredited day program and offers activities that stimulate children’s physical, social, intellectual, and emotional growth with special emphasis on supporting emergent literacy and math skills. Nutritious afternoon snacks and healthy dinners are served daily.
