Learn About Bright & Early ND
One of the questions parents ask all the time is, “Where can I find a high-quality child care provider?”
The answer has been somewhat muddy because the term "high-quality" means different things to different people. Bright & Early ND used national research to determine and define quality Early Care & Education, we know parents need a way to be able to spot the best child care programs, the ones who go above and beyond for children.
So, the North Dakota Dept. of Human Services launched Bright & Early North Dakota statewide in 2015.
It’s designed to do 3 important things (we call them "the 3R’s").
Take talented child care providers and showcase their greatness to parents and the community.
Deliver professional rewards for a job well done (monetary dollars based on enrollment); cutting edge tools in school-readiness; professional development; personal coach by your side; and exclusive insider perks)
