My name is Candy and I am the owner of Bright Beginnings Academy for Kids. I opened the center in 2008 and spent 10 years being the administrator before stepping down to become a consultant in the child care industry. I am available to the management team for consultation and I also create the policies and procedures required to maintain compliance with licensing requirements and high quality practices.
Outside of work I have a very large family. I live in Oshkosh with my significant other Erney. I have 5 grown daughters (with son in laws) and he has 2 children. We have 4 grandchildren and one more on the way that are really my pride and joy. I love spending time with them. I love being in nature and enjoying life with the people I love.
Hi! My name is Allie and I am the Director at Bright Beginnings. I have been in the childcare field for a little over 5 years. I came here in hopes to find a fulfilling position working with children. I love children and I am always looking for new ways to help the kids have fun. My favorite color is red and I love DIY’s and crafts. I love music, cooking and baking. I do very well with large group sizes because I come from a very large family. I have worked with all age groups and know that there are unique ways to teaching all of them.
Hi everyone, my name is Erin and I'm the assistant director. I'm a mom myself and I love children. I've been at Bright Beginnings since 2015 however I've been around longer as my children attended before that and I volunteered during those times. Outside of work I spend my time doing different activities with my kids.


Here at Bright Beginnings we have four members of the management team. All four ladies are very excited to be on the Bright Beginnings Team and are always there to help.
