200 Columbia Street West, Waterloo, ON  N2L 0A7


Parking is available in front of Bright Starts for drop off and pick up. Parking is limited; parents should not occupy these spaces any longer than necessary, as others may be waiting. Parents are not permitted to park in the designated drop off and pick up spaces for the day; vehicles may be towed.

Building Access

All exterior doors are enabled with Authorized Access Control. Upon completion of registration, parents will be provided with Key Fobs and asked to sign our Key Fob Agreement allowing access to Bright Starts through the main door.

Any lost Key Fobs must be reported to the office immediately and can be replaced at a cost to the parent. For the security and well-being of our children, key fobs should not be shared permitting others to have unauthorized access to the centre. If someone other than an authorized Key Fob holder will be picking up a child, they will need to ring the buzzer and wait to gain access to the centre by a staff member. All Key Fobs must be returned upon withdrawal from the centre.

A secured access entrance can create a false sense of security at times, especially if members hold the door open for others behind them. To minimize this risk, say hello, and get to know the other parents. Don’t be afraid to ask someone which room their child is in, and tell them that they’ll need to wait and use their own Key Fob or speak to a staff before entering.
