About Us

About our Daycare

Brilliant Minds is a NYS licensed Group Family Daycare, owned and operated by childcare professionals with more than 65 years of combined experience.

Caring for children is a partnership between parents and our center. Parents receive daily notifications and status updates about learning activities, meals and naps, with pictures and videos – all from a personalized app – with the ability to also communicate via text messages.

Academic and social/emotional skills are taught together and benchmarked to readiness for Kindergarten. Appropriate technology is infused and monitored strictly, with the use of iPads and computers. All staff are First Aid & CPR certified. And our center is nut, pet and smoke free. The premises are monitored by CCTV cameras

What We Offer

Through toys, games and computer technology preschoolers will gain exposure to one of the most sought after and highly paid jobs in today’s workforce. And yes, they can start in preschool.
Arts & crafts projects allow children to use their creativity freely. It also provides opportunity to improve skills such as holding a pencil or crayon, cutting. Teachable moments make concepts real.
Research has proven that learning a second language is best and easiest for children between birth and the age of 7. Learning Spanish now broadens children's cultural exposure/opportunities.
Baking is a fun (and yummy) way to teach kids. Frequent baking projects incorporate all the senses as a critical way to learn. Children feel pride and recognize their accomplishment.
Children are never too young to be introduced to science experiments. They learn about their environment through these activities. Curiosity and exploration abound as they learn and grow.
Gardening has been known to be calming and relaxing for children. We use it to help improve fine motor skill development. It also teaches students responsibility and how to care for the world they live in.
Children have outdoor play time daily (weather permitting). This breaks the monotony of being inside all day and offers much needed exercise and gross motor skill development for strong muscles and bones.
