Bright & Beautiful Daycare

Our Center is a non-profit center owned, located and operated by Union Grove United Methodist Church.  Church members receive a 10% discount on tuition!!!  Bright & Beautiful School Age Program and Childcare Center are both state licensed centers.   We also participate in the State of Wisconsin’s Young Star rating program.

Portfolios will be maintained for each child at our Centers.  A portfolio will begin at the time your child(ren) is enrolled and will follow them throughout their journey with Bright & Beautiful.  These are active and ongoing progress measurement tools to monitor your child(ren)’s development and progress.

Thank you for visiting our website.  We will do everything possible to make this a rewarding experience for you and your family.

We would like to stress to you that your input is critical to us in maintaining a high quality program.  Bright and Beautiful has an “open door policy” which means that if you ever have any questions, concerns or suggestions, feel free to stop in or call the office.   Once your child is enrolled at our center, please feel free to visit or check on your child whenever you would like.  No phone call is necessary because we welcome you at any time.

Bright and Beautiful Christian Child Care Center is open to all children between the ages of 6 weeks through to 12 years of age.  We do not discriminate against race, color, creed, nationality, handicap, and/or religion.  All are welcome!


Serving children and their families since 1974, it is the Union Grove Methodist Church’s commitment to continue providing a safe and vibrant environment where children can grow intellectually, emotionally, physically, socially, spiritually, and provide a program which is based on Christian principles.

Our Philosophy

Our staff is composed of skilled and caring individuals.  The center focuses on the child as a whole.  We believe that a child learns best by doing; the child is considered an active participant in his or her own development.  Children are unique and we encourage development in their individual personality through structured activities and play.  Playing is encouraged as children learn the rules of society, develop-test-revise their own theories about the world around them and problem solve.

Each child is also a member of God’s family and we strive to allow for spiritual growth for each child.  Our approach is a problem solving one and early concepts (social and academic) are provided to your child at various teaching centers within the classroom.  The centers are child-orientated (and differentiated for your individual child’s needs) as much as possible.  In this we guarantee that each child is stimulated at his or her own learning level.  We use predominately manipulative materials so that children are “hands on” in the thinking and learning process.

Through partnerships of the  parents, teachers and children, we are committed to reach the following objectives.

Early literacy and early math skills to provide the foundation for a love of lifelong learning

  • A positive self-image
  • Habits of creative and independent thinking
  • Attitudes of social cooperation and moral responsibility
  • Knowledge of appreciation of persons, things, and events in the environment
  • Encourage cultural diversity through the use of games, stories, art and music
  • Tracking children’s outcomes
