BRILLIANT BABIES DAYCARE

Our Daycare

a brilliant babyBrilliant Babies is a daycare program that offers a safe, well-supervised, clean, educational, nurturing and fun-filled environment for infants and toddlers ages 6 weeks to 5 years.

Research shows that from birth to age 5, the brain triples in size! To feed our growing brains, we provide a curriculum designed to keep our little ones engaged throughout the day learning through all senses: sight, sound, touch, smell and taste.

To ensure a successful partnership between teacher and parent(s) we ask all of our Brilliant Parents to download the Brightwheel app. With Brightwheel, parents can be involved with their child(ren) throughout the day.

We love each of our Brilliant Babies as though they were our very own and offer an open-door policy allowing parents to stop by at any time. For additional safety, the entire premise is monitored by 24-hour camera surveillance along with a coded keypad entrance. This code will be updated periodically to ensure the continued safety of our Brilliant Babies.

Parents are welcome to view the camera system live as well as view playbacks of specific time periods. However, parents will not be allowed to view indiscriminately throughout the day in order to protect the privacy rights of other students.

Food & Food Storage

All food items are placed in our refrigerator to maintain freshness. Each student has his/her own basket labeled accordingly in the refrigerator. We ask that you label utensils (bottles, cups, bowls, plates, forks and spoons) as well.

Nursing babies must have their very own bottle warmers, complete with the child’s name written on the warmer in permanent marker ink. While breast milk offers the very best in nutrition for your growing baby, it is also capable of transmitting contagions. Therefore, we must strictly enforce this policy for the health of everyone. Please note that per DCF regulations, leftover formula and breast milk will be discarded after use.

We thank you for trusting your most precious gems with us.

We are available 24/7 with any questions or concerns at our cellphone: just call or text at 850-459-0770.

Discipline Plan

As a program that offers a safe and enjoyable environment for your children, we will not tolerate inappropriate behavior.

We take pride in making our program a safe and pleasant atmosphere for both children and staff members. IMPORTANT: ALL STAFF MEMBERS HAVE CLEARED THE LEVEL II CRIMINAL BACKGROUND CHECK AS REQUIRED BY LEON COUNTY SCHOOLS and possess the necessary early childhood certifications required by DCF.

Children are prohibited from being subjected to discipline that is severe, humiliating, frightening, or associated with food, rest, or toileting. Spanking or any other form of physical punishment is prohibited for all childcare personnel. Children may not be denied active play as a consequence of misbehavior.
