Meet Our Director
My name is Carrie Stewart, and I’m the Director at Bright Ideas Enrichment Center in Cookeville, TN. I officially began working in early childhood education in 2016. I have been involved in children’s programs for many years prior at church, my son’s ball teams, and as a foster parent. I received my Childhood Development Accreditation (CDA) in 2019, completed my classes for my Technical Certificate from Vol State in 2020, and I am currently enrolled working on my associate degree in Early Childhood Education.
I love working with children, and I have truly found my calling. I love that I get to do something that I am passionate about every day. The first five years of a child’s life are so developmentally important, and I want to be a part of building that solid foundation.
I live in Cookeville with my 16-year-old son, Alexander, and he is my greatest blessing. I enjoy spending time with my 6 nieces, and getting to spoil them! In my free time, I love to listen to local live bands, and support local businesses. I love this community, and I love getting to know our families within our center.
