Hello! My name is Tracy Vandertie-Goltz. Along with my husband Chad, my older son Zander and my younger son Vann, we are the proud owners of Bright Beginnings Childcare and Learning Centers.

A little something about our family

We enjoy many year-round outdoor activities and playing games. Our boys are in sports, so that keeps us busy, as well! Chad and I enjoy spending our “down time” watching movies.

A little something about me

I began my career in childcare while attending high school, then continued in college. After my education I began teaching full-time. A couple years later I accepted a position as center director at a local family-owned facility, where I stayed for over six years. The owners retired and sold the company to a big corporation-run company.

My dream was to own my own center with a family atmosphere. I worked for the corporation for about a year, and realized it was time to follow my dream. In July 2000 I opened our Green Bay location. In May 2004, I opened our West De Pere location. It took a lot of hard work, but my parents and family were and are a big part of our approach and the philosophies we instill at Bright Beginnings: Family always comes first.

We’re extremely proud of this accomplishment and keeping these standards for over 20 years now. The management and staff are a big part of our success. I’m confident that you’ll be pleased with our commitment to quality, and providing the best care and early education for your child.

Let us make your life a little easier and worry-free so you can have a “Bright Beginning” to your day! Contact us or schedule a tour today to learn more!
