Bright Ideas Childcare and Preschool, Inc. 

Providing Child Care, Preschool, and Before/After School Care for children in the Altoona, PA area


3-22-20, 11:45 am:  


We were able to receive a waiver to re-open, however to act on the side of caution, and in the best interest of keeping our children and employees safe and healthy, we have made the very difficult decision to remain closed this coming week.

Hopefully, we will be able to re-open next week as originally planned.

We will be reaching out at the end of this week to all parents to see if care will be needed the following week.

Thank you all for understanding during these difficult times.  If any parents have any questions, please feel free to message us on Facebook or by email since no one will be at the centers to answer the phones.

Best to all,

Miss Patti




Due to the COVID-19 virus, the Governor has ordered a statewide closure of licensed child care facilities for a period of 14 days beginning at midnight March 16th. We apologize for this inconvenience and look forward to continuing to serve our families. We will continue to provide updates on our Facebook page and website.
