Thank you so much for entrusting your children with The Brighter Beginnings Learning Center. Our intent is to ensure your children receive the best care & education possible while making it easy for you to communicate with the staff and stay up-to-date on your account. We look forward to a happy and long partnership with you.
Greg and Rachel Feltenberger have been independent business owners of three child care centers in Meridian several years. Prior to becoming business owners, we had both of our sons enrolled in local child care centers here in Meridian as we worked full-time in the medical field. We have been both child care customers and owners so we can relate to a lot of what our families experience when they have children enrolled in child care centers.
Rachel worked for St Luke’s for almost 19 years. In February 2021, she transitioned from healthcare in order to focus solely on the three child care centers. Rachel’s positions at St Luke’s included 14 years of leadership roles in various areas of Cardiology; which were incredibly valuable experiences in learning to lead very large teams. In addition, she started CompassHR in 2021 to provide human resource management support to healthcare organizations and the preschools. Greg spent a significant portion of his adult life in the military – he retired in 2014 as a Lieutenant Colonel after 21 years of active duty in the US Air Force. Currently, he is the CEO of US Healthcare Partners.
Rachel spends her days supporting the wonderful Directors and teachers who make the child care businesses possible. She is the primary person who provides oversight of the child care centers each week and spends a lot of time meeting with the teams to support, encourage, and recognize the great work that is done to care for the children enrolled in each center.
Brighter Beginnings Learning Center exists to support the childcare needs of families in our community. We will provide a positive, nurturing relationship focused on developing self-esteem and self-worth. Children will learn to live together, problem solve, and appreciate the things that make everyone special.
We pursue our mission by integrating age-appropriate educational curriculum and a healthy, peaceful environment in which a child’s social, emotional, creative, and physical needs develop. We set high standards for the staff to ensure a successful relationship with the child and the child’s parents. Every child is unique and our staff will provide a positive, nurturing relationship focused on developing self-esteem and self-worth. Children will learn to live together, problem solve, and appreciate the things that make everyone special.
