Bright Eyes is overwhelmed with the kindness and generosity of our families and community through this difficult time.

We miss you all and look forward to reopening our doors once we are given the ok from MSDE and governing officials. Please check back with us next Friday, April 3rd for updates and information. Stay safe everyone!
After listening to Governor Hogan’s press conference today we feel that it is inevitable that we would be closed. We also feel that it is in the best interests of children, families and staff that we follow Governor Hogan’s request that non-essential businesses close at 5:00 today. We will close at 5:00 and stay closed for the foreseeable future.
Please know that this has not been an easy decision to make, as always we are considering the best interests of everyone. Please stay safe and check our website and Facebook pages for updates.
We will re-open as soon as the Governor’s mandate is lifted.
