new information

Dear Families,

Our Program may look a little different then it has in the past, but our commitment and care of your child/children has not changed. We have all kinds of new thing going on this year, even our name “Bright Beginnings Playschool” is new. We are no longer just Mother’s Day Out. We are so much more and are blessed to be able to teach and care for your child/children in a safe learning environment. Please see below for our new COVID-19 protocols and other new information.

Please understand this is a “living document” and is subject to change as new information & guidelines are released about COVID-19.


We follow Kerrville ISD calendar for Holidays & Bad Weather Days.

We are not a licensed facility, but we follow The Texas Child Care Licensing’s Minimum Standards for daily operation protocols.

Drop--off & Pick-up

  • Drop-Off will include COVID-19 symptoms screening questions, as well as Contactless temperature (temperatures must be under 100 degrees) checks for all children and their Parents/Guardians who are dropping them off. (This will be done in car pool line at the covered entrance. You may also park and walk up to that entrance)
  • Staff members will escort children to their classrooms & check them in. (Sorry, but at this time Parent/Guardian will not be allowed in the building.)
  • We will have a Pick-Up car pool line under the covered entrance and a staff member will bring children out. You may walk up and wait for your child. (Sorry, but at this time Parents/Guardian will not be allowed in the building)
  • Parent/Guardians are encouraged to wear face coverings at Drop-Off & Pick-Up.
  • Teachers, Coordinator, Director are encouraged to wear face coverings when reasonable distancing is not possible.

  • Disinfecting surfaces between activities, before and after eating, at the end of the day.
  • Disinfecting toys and learning tools after each use and the end of the day. (When possible each child will have their own set of crayons/markers/scissors and toys)
  • Disinfecting playground equipment between classes. We will stagger all playground, Chapel and Motor Skill times so that no two classes are there at the same time.
