2020 Excellence in Education Finalist Brighton Center

(SAN ANTONIO) — H-E-B recently announced that Brighton Center is one of the five early childhood facilities and the ONLY one in San Antonio selected as finalists for the retailer’s 19th annual, 2020 Excellence in Education Awards program, Early Childhood category.

“We are honored to be recognized by H-E-B in this way!  We take pride in providing the highest quality of early education and care that is individualized for each of our students. At Brighton we believe that if we can provide the right support at the right time, we can truly change the trajectory of a child’s future.  That is why we are committed to national best practices, have degreed teachers in each classroom and operate with very low ratios.  To have H-E-B recognize our agency for our commitment to the children we serve means the world to us.”   –Alix Martinez, Early Childhood Education Program Director

Brighton Center is a non-profit organization that provides multiple services and programs to help prepare children of ALL abilities ages 0-8 for a successful educational future. We operate two Nationally Accredited Early Childhood Education Centers in San Antonio, provides occupational, speech and physical therapy to babies and toddlers and have education advocates on staff that work with parents to ensure their children are getting the support and resources they need to be successful in school.  Altogether, Brighton works with approximately 3,500 children and their families annually. We are proud to be recognized in H-E-B’s 2020 Excellence in Education Awards.

“We love the staff, the mix of students, the daily activities, the care and compassion, and perhaps most of all, the pictures and videos throughout the day that allow us to see the amazing development taking place. Our boys can’t wait to go to school each day and their progress has been amazing!!!” – David Krewson, Parent of two children that attend Brighton’s preschool program

This is the 2nd time Brighton Center has been named a finalist in H-E-B’s Excellence in Education program (2015 & 2020).  The organization was also named a semi-finalist in 2017 and 2019.

Winners will be announced at the H-E-B 2020 Excellence in Education Awards ceremony on May 3 at the La Cantera Resort & Spa in San Antonio. The winning early childhood facility will receive $25,000.
