For over 40 years, Bright Beginnings Preschool has helped prepare 3 year olds, 4 year olds, and 5 year olds for kindergarten success through excellent instruction, curriculum, and group play.
Each year, Bright Beginnings staff help lay a foundation for the long-term academic success of up to 56 children. Your child will be introduced to learning and activities structured around ZooPhonics and creative STEM stations that give your child a hands on approach to learning.
Research shows that children who are prepared for kindergarten are more successful throughout their academic careers. We are excited and honored to help lay the foundation to a BRIGHT future!
We offer two classes at Bright Beginnings. Our Seedlings class is offered to 3 and 4 year old. Our Sprouts class is offered to 4 and 5 year old.

Meet your Teachers
Hello, my name is Tiffany Darnold. I grew up here in Colville, attended Bright Beginnings as a preschooler and graduated from CHS as a 12 year senior. I attended Eastern Washington University, earned a Bachelor of Science Degree in Applied Developmental Psychology and a minor in Special Education, My husband Steve and I have lived in Colville for 19 years with our twin 18 year old daughters, Adysen and Bayleigh and our 14 year old son, Parker. I absolutely love working with kids and as an educator. It is a wonderful opportunity to introduce kiddos to their first school experiences and create a love of learning. When I am not working at school you can find me trying to keep up with my family and our busy schedule of attending sporting events, working on our home/farm, spending time and taking care of our pets (dogs, cats, birds and fish). I am looking forward to a wonderful new year!
