Bright Haven Children’s Learning Center was innovated by its founder Erin Helmer. After several disappointing experiences with various childcare facilities caring for their son, Erin felt led to develop a higher level of childcare. The lack of existing childcare facilities that offer quality working conditions to teachers and staff, while upholding the high level of childcare service delivery, prompted the need for a better solution. Bright Haven Children’s Learning Center is that solution.

  • “It has been such a blessing to be able to watch my son in class while I’m traveling for work. Also, his Granny and Papaw in Hamburg, Ark look forward, everyday, to being able to see Tate from so far away and watch him grow and learn at school. It’s almost like they’re here!”

  • “Our son has attended Bright Haven for two years and it has been a complete blessing for our family. When he began, we were concerned about the progress he was making at his other daycare. Almost immediately, he began to grow and learn more than we could have imagined possible. It was amazing how fast everyone in the center knew and called him by name. It became his home away from home very quickly. The one thing that has made the biggest difference for us is that he stays in the same room with the same teachers all day… No moving kids around to lower ratios. That consistency has been so vital for him, his friends, and us as parents, so that we know what kind of day he has had. We also love how he comes home telling Bible stories and then remembers them when he is in class at church! At Bright Haven, I know our son is cared for, educated and, most importantly, loved.”

  • “I love Bright Haven! I am very impressed with the staff and my child loves going there!! I know that she’s in great hands. We started in the Infant 1 room and look forward to the many rooms to come!”

  • “We moved our son to Bright Haven Christian Learning Center because we loved the fact that they teach the Bible. When I walk into the center, I feel a sense of calmness and caring. Each morning and afternoon, several BH employees, besides my child’s teacher, greet us. This shows that everyone cares about my child and his future success. We have been very pleased with our experiences at Bright Haven. Our son is developing and growing as he should.”
