About the Provider


While designing Bright Beginnings we wanted the space to feel warm and inviting. It's not always easy leaving your children (Believe me! I've been there). So we made sure to add all the elements so your child is safe, cared for, with plenty of room to grow and thrive. 2 Staff, 2 Meals, 2 Snacks, 850 sq. ft of play space.Separate infant area. Large Fenced yard. Preparing your child for school with a classroom atmosphere and guided learning.

Additional Information:

The name Bright Beginnings was inspired by the idea that every child deserves a happy and optimistic start. We know that each and every one of them is unique and gifted with their own strengths and abilities. Our staff focus on building each child’s self-esteem and confidence through positive feedback and praise. We want to inspire them to be the best little people that they can be all the while making us the best teachers we can be. “While we try to teach our children all about life, our children teach us what life is all about.” -Angela Schwindt.    My name is Crystal and I am the oldest of six children. My assistant care giver Courtney is my youngest Sister. I am the proud Aunt of 12 Nieces and Nephews, many of which are my godchildren. I married my high school sweetheart Matthew, and we are the proud parents of Nathan and Brenden. Bright Beginnings is just that for me! A new start doing something that I Love. I recently left my position at the Veterinary Medical Center at the University of Minnesota and froze my Realtor license. We moved to Braham in May of 2015 and dedicated half of our new home for this exciting adventure in childcare!
