Denise and her staff have worked very hard over the past years to get Bryden where it is today!

Bryden Academy Learning & Daycare has also received various "BABY STEPS" grants, "NEXT STEPS" grants and a "QUALITY IMPROVEMENT" grants. With each grant, teachers are required to continue training year after year by taking appropriate early childhood courses and uphold certain guidelines (ITERS guidelines) in their classrooms that are given by the state.

Also, they must pass a federal & state extensive background check for child care, be certified in CPR & First Aid & hold a current food handlers permit.
