My son and I both love Bright Beginnings Montessori Preschool. I observed the school for a few days before enrolling my son and was impressed with Ms. Joanne's handling of the kids. We were sitting outside discussing the school while she was supervising the outside play time. What I found remarkable was that while we were chatting, she did not miss a beat with what was going on with the kids. She was quick to intervene when she noticed any tensions between the kids. She resolved any "disputes" in a supportive and fair way. This creates a safe environment for the children to flourish, both academically and socially.

After a few visits, on the first day, I assumed my son would cry when he realized I was leaving him. But instead, he ran into the school ahead of me and didn't even look back! He has been there for 6 months now and still does the same thing.

Ms. Joanne is truly dedicated to the children and the parents. She has created a warm, loving community and and I feel very lucky to have the opportunity to send my son to such a quality preschool.

I have two children who have attended Bright Beginnings and I couldn't be happier with the school. Last year my son's kindergarten teacher said he entered kindergarten at a level they hope most of the children will reach by the end of the school year. This is a testament to the quality of the preschool education he received at Bright Beginnings. Beyond the academics, my son developed at Bright Beginnings into an independent, confident, social, and compassionate child. My daughter is in her second year at Bright Beginnings, and is having a wonderful experience. She looks forward to going to school and often isn't ready to leave when I arrive to pick her up. The teachers do a wonderful job of creating a nurturing, educational, supportive and FUN environment for the children. As a small school, there is a great sense of community among all of the families, children, and staff. The facility is great, with an amazing outdoor play area. I am so thankful my kids have been able to attend Bright Beginnings and I give it two big thumbs up!

Bright Beginnings is a wonderful school where the children learn in a loving, caring environment. Our child has attended BB for almost 3 years and we cannot recommend the school more highly. Visit the school and see for yourself the nurturing, supportive teachers and staff and how happy the children are to be there (and how much they learn!) Joanne, the director, is a well-respected, experienced Montessori teacher who is nationally recognized as a leader in Montessori education. The parent community is very supportive of the school and of each other, and the closeness we have with these families will be something we miss as our child heads off to Kindergarten in the fall.

I have nothing but love and good things to say about Bright Beginnings. I find it so sad that these "former parents" must point fingers and place blame and hate on others when we must remember that when you point a finger at someone, three more are pointing back at you. Maybe the anger these "former parents" have really stems from their own parenting skills and their guilt must be placed on someone else. It is easy to blame for trouble rather then blame for praise. Bright Beginnings was a wonderful experience and I would not only recommend any inquiring parent to send their child there, but you would be a fool not to. And for those parents looking online to check all of the "reviews" I would say this to you with good heart: Go and see for youself. You will be blown away by the love and passion and education this school provides in only ten minutes being there in your observation. If we stay positive and loving, then our children will learn to be positive and love. But if we practive anger and hate, then that is what our children learn from us.

We spent close to 4 years as members of the BB family and I cannot say enough in terms of how warm, nurturing and loving they were to my daughter and me. We really were treated like family members and my daughter LOVED Miss Joanne and her daughters and husband. Was it absolutely perfect? Nothing in this world is. However, it did provide a solid foundation and gave my daughter a sense of security and self confidence that have been invaluable. There was some turnover in staff, but that's to be expected at a daycare. Let's face it, the economics make it challenging to hire and retain PHDs. I truly believe it was and is a labor of love for the Aidens and am thankful to have participated.

It blew my mind the warmth I felt when I first walked through the cozy intimate house. The children had a glow and the staff was so attentive. The Director Joanne amazed me with her knowledge and her credentials were impressive. I had 3 children attend Bright Beginnings with my youngest most recent. Over nearly the 10 years I was a parent there is nothing that says more about a school then by sending siblings. I was just one of the few who had multiple children attend. Worried at times because there was a constant waiting list but it was worth the wait. I was very disappointed in some of the negative comments made and it doesn't surprise me that most of them are anonymous. Instead of being truthful about their own situation they hide their identity and blame a school that deep down inside they know how their child thrived at Bright Beginnings. Some left because of financial reasons and one left because they made an accusation about the school that ended up being false and was caused by their own environment in the house. I guess I would be too embarrassed to come back. If you look at the 20 plus years BB has been in business hundreds of families have come through and whether it's been a year or 10 years graduates of BB still come by to say hi and recall the wonderful time they had there. I would recommend this school to anyone and the staff is beyond qualified. Never has BB ever had a inquiry or complaint made about unqualified staff and that says a lot. Joanne is very by the book and follows licensing guidelines to the T. It is a place that's always looking to improve and the open door policy is very comforting. Last thing the comment made about the Owner is a mom of a family blows my mind. The Owner is not a mom of a family and that just goes to show you why anonymous people are making these comments. Before you discredit a place and make accusations know your facts. It's all about Karma what goes around comes around and all the cowardly anonymous people have to look at themselves in the mirror and realize that their made up bitterness doesn't hold a candle to 20 plus years of parents praises and 100's of children who have graduated and succeeded in school and life because of the nurturing development of BB. I am just one of those parents who holds BB with high regard

I can't say enough good things about Bright Beginnings. Both of my sons have gone here and absolutely loved it. It is a warm, loving environment in which my kids have learned about independence, creativity, kindness, respect (for themselves and others) and community involvement. Bright Beginnings has also prepared my older son, who just entered Kindergarten, perfectly with the fundamentals necessary for reading and writing, science, and math skills. Joanne and Jerry Adan have done a tremendous job with BB - they have developed a school that offers a warm and nurturing environment, great preparation for kindergarten, and a fun atmosphere.

It has been a long time since my son attended Bright Beginnings. He is now 20 years old. Reading these negative reviews by "Annonymous" people shows they don't have the integrity to stand up for their harsh words. Typical. My son learned a lot and made great friends at BB. He first attended while Joanne had this preschool in her garage. She took my son even though he was still in training diapers. She helped him grow and took very good care of him. He was there until he went off to kindergarten. He loved going there every day, loved Joanne and the staff. My entire family loved Bright Beginnings. If and when my grandchildren (don't have)ever need a place to grow, I will send them here.

My daughter has been going to the Bright Beginnings for 3 years. The owners are very professional, caring and educate the children well. Kids love it because they get treated very well and they have lots of fun there. Everyone gets along. I'm so glad we had a great experience and my daughter was very happy going to the Bright Beginnings. I strongly recommend this daycare to everyone! My daughter is now prepared for Kindergarten. And if you have read terrible things about Bright Beginnings I will tell you who made up those lies. These are very bad people who didn't pay the owner money for school and who were trying to get away with it by making up excuses and stories. It's all false information. Don't believe them.

I worked at Bright Beginnings Preschool under the supervision of Joanne Adan for over a year and I left there with nothing but wonderful memories. I was expecting my first child and the time had come for his arrival.

My experience at Bright Beginnings and working with Joanne was amazing!! Joanne taught me so much, her kindness, her ability to show compassion and empathy for children, her dedication to the children and their parents, her professionalism, her ability to provide an enriched environment for children and to guide them to find the love of learning.

Joanne is a fair and considerate supervisor and took the time to listen to your needs. Working with Joanne at BB and the training I received from this talented women, enriched me so much in so many ways as a teacher, that I utilize everything that I was trained in and am now applying that to my own personal life as a mother, that all I can say is I was lucky to have been a part of this wonderful school and work with Joanne Adan.

It takes a village to raise a child and Bright Beginnings Preschool is a wonderful choice.

With patience and graciousness we can prevail in all our endeavors. But because of pride and a denigrating attitude toward others, everything is lost.

In our lives today there should more focused energy on the things in life that we can do to assist and help each other, by lending a helping hand and paying compliments and speaking works of kindness. To take the time to be malicious, spiteful, and cruel and to attack a person not only personally and professionally is cowardly and weak and done out of insecurities of one self.

Families of children that attend a quality program and ??love? their school one minute and then become angry, disgruntled over money matters the next minute, should take that energy of anger for someone, as it is obvious in these comments written and move to a positive place where they demonstrate to their child compassion and understanding instead of hostility. What is wrong here?.when teachers and schools take the time to teach and love the child and give them the best they can while parents are at work, over 50 hours a week in some cases, then they turn so cruel and spiteful?

Defamation, Libel and Slander - is the issuance of a false statement about another person, which causes that person to suffer harm. Slander involves the making of defamatory statements by a transitory (non-fixed) representation, usually an oral (spoken) representation. Libel involves the making of defamatory statements in a printed or fixed medium, such as a magazine or newspaper and yes even internet writings!!

Parents of children need to be really careful of what is being said about the schools and the teachers that their children attended. When you speak to gain attention to cause harm to another you cannot possibly enjoy the love that is all around us in this beautiful world we live. Life??s greatest values are intangible and never seen by the eye.

Look beyond negativity...

Our daughter is completing her first year at Bright Beginnings and has flourished under the skillful guidance of Ms. Joanne and the rest of her excellent staff. Each staff member is caring and nurturing with every student's education and welfare. They care about the children's health and development, and the staff has the educational backgrounds and skills to assure the children's success.

That the three negative reviews were posted on the same day is no coincidence. Three familes filed and lost a bogus law suit against the school. Becaused the miscreant families lost their unfounded suit, they now want to poision Bright Beginnings' reputation.

Past and current families who have had and have their children in Bright Beginnings will not allow them to tarnish the reputation of this wonderful school that has meant and means so much to our children and the community. An unbiased San Mateo judge found no merit in the law suit, but the idiocy that drove the law suit now drives these families to impugn the integrity and skill of a school and staff whose record and accomplishments are exemplary.

We are blessed to have our child in Bright Beginnings.

This preschool seemed so appealing at first: small, intimate with what appeared to be a caring, well-credentialed director. Wow, were we led astray. The owner/director is petty and unprofessional and for much of our time there, was often not even around. She plays favorites and engages in retaliatory and hostile behavior if families try to complain. There is significant teacher turnover and what is left are her unqualified young daughter and her friend. I would strongly discourage anybody from going to this school. Don't be fooled!

My child attended for one year. The owner/teacher, Joanne, is a very overbearing, opinonated control freak who is not open to viewpoints that conflict witht her own. She is unable to retain any staff not related to her for any period over a year. What she markets and what she really does at her school are two very different things. Her daughter and her daughter's friend are the two other "teachers" there, and they are not even fully accredited. You will do better at almost any other preschool in the Bay area. We are much happier now that we no longer attend.

My child attends Bright Beginnings and we all love it there. Bright Beginnings nourishes creativity, building a positive self concept, it allows for positive social interactions with peers and adults, and also provides enhanced montessori learning. Children are treated with respect and given an abundance of love and affection. Bright Beginnings develops children's competence, cooperation, autonomy and creativity by the many facets of the program (language, math, literature, music, science, etc; as well as encouraging children to initiate, ask questions, make choices, think of new ideas and to find alternative choices. It is packed with all the things we as parents look for to help develop the whole child!!

I am grateful, thankful, appreciative to have found Bright Beginnings for my child and would recommend this school to anyone who wants a Quality Preschool.

My wife and couldn't believe the family and staff turnover.
Made us wonder a lot and then we finally saw the reasons.

Both my daughter and son attended Bright Beginnings for a total of almost 4 years. BB provided a safe, loving, fun environment that gave me peace of mind every day. My children enjoyed going to pre-school and learned life lessons that helped them develop into the little people they are today.

Both my daughter and son attended Bright Beginnings for a total of almost 4 years. BB provided a safe, loving, fun environment that gave me peace of mind every day. My children enjoyed going to pre-school and learned life lessons that helped them develop into the little people they are today.

Bright Beginning appears very wonderful on the outside, but its inner world is a different picture.

1. The school is run by the mom of a family, and either her daughters or her daughters friends are the only staff that last for any substantial period of time. Staff outside of that do not last and end up quitting.

2. The owner/mom is an overbearing micro-managing person, and will leave parents notes about anything and everything... it amounts to much nagging about rules, not much in between - like how your child is doing. If there is a note, it is more likely to be negative and often, the owner/mom tries to diagnose symptoms and to get parents to run their kids to the doctor.

3. THE STAFF PLAYS FAVORITES. Either your child will be ignored or over-coddled, each having very damaging effects.

We are delighted to have our youngest attending Bright Beginnings, a place where she is loved and cared for by a nuturing staff. This is a small, close-knit pre-school where children get a great deal of individual attention. Joanne Aiden is a teacher of Montessori teachers and it shows in her staff. The children love being there because it is such a stimulating, supportive and nuturing environment.

PROS: Small, professional staff, loving and nurturing environment, cirriculuum
CONS: Limited enrollment means it can be hard to get into if you don't enroll ear
