Local and family owned since 1999
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.
