In 2011, Brighter Babies opened doors to a custom built facility located in the historic Powerhouse building along the Long Island City waterfront. At the time, the center featured five classrooms for children ages 3 months – 3 years old. Brighter Babies was the first school in Long Island City to serve infants and toddlers.

In 2014, Brighter Babies expanded into the space adjacent to the school, creating a new state of the art center with a total of ten classrooms, a brand new gym, two offices and parent / teacher lounge. The expansion resulted in the doubling of the school’s enrollment to over 100 children and the introduction of a new preschool and pre-k program taught by New York State certified teachers.
