About Lunch Bunch

Lunch Bunch is offered after the regular preschool hours (12:30 to 2:45) for children who are enrolled in our 3 year old, VPK and Stepping Stones classes.  Children will eat lunch between 12:30-1:00. Each child will need to bring their lunch; please have their name marked on their lunch box. (We are not able to heat lunches).  They will proceed between the hours of 1:00 to 2:45 to their “special” class (see listings below).  Each class will be 1/2 hour and instructed by a Bright Beginnings Staff member.

Parent pick up will be at 2:45 via the Car Line (weather permitting).   If the wind sock is hanging, this means the weather is not suitable for car line pick up – please come in the building to retrieve your child.
