Meet Our Director

Alia Graves

This is my 17th year working in early childhood education -- most of those spent teaching in preschool and VPK classrooms. I attended Tallahassee Community College and Saint Leo University, where my major was Developmental Psychology. I hold many certifications, including a CDA, VPK Director's Credential, and a Neuronet Teacher Certification. 

At Bright Ideas Miramar, it is my goal to create and promote a positive and engaging learning environment for all students. Bright Ideas Miramar is a center where each student is valued, trusted, and an integral part of our family of learners. 

Looking for the Best Childcare
in Destin, Florida?

Bright Ideas Enrichment Center (formerly Creative Learning Center) is more than a childcare center. We offer families in the Destin area an enriching place for their children to learn and grow.

Everything you're looking for...

Educated teachers

Quality childcare program

Safe and loving atmosphere

Affordable childcare tuition

Our early childhood program provides each child with opportunities to build the self-esteem that is essential in the adjusting, exploring, and growing stages of child development.

Our team of childcare professionals is dedicated to offering comprehensive early care, and an educational experience that encourages students to advance socially, emotionally, physically, and cognitively. 

We believe it is important to establish cooperative relationships with parents and families. We encourage and foster positive parent/teacher relationships that support children in their development.

We have had such a wonderful experience with this daycare! Our daughter is always excited to go to school to see her friends and teachers! The communication is always there between us and the staff! Highly recommend!

Very impressed with the new ownership and and the way things were quickly organized in preparation for COVID-19. My mind is at ease knowing my daughter’s safety is top priority! Thank you to Sara and the team.

New ownership (from January) has brought a welcome change in regards to communication, technology and administration. This care center has been well run especially during these Covid times. We are grateful to be able to utilize Creative Learning Center for not only our current child but for also allowing a former graduate to attend. As essential workers, we would be in a difficult situation if it was not for the great staff at CLC.

"Finally, Good Childcare Near Me!"

We understand that convenience is important to Miramar Beach (Destin) families. Driving out of the way for quality childcare makes a much longer commute to work each day. That's why we located our amazing childcare center off of the Major Highway 98 -- right past Scenic Gulf Drive, near the Santa Rosa Beach, Destin, and Miramar Beach areas, and just across the bay from Freeport and Niceville!

Families seeking childcare in ZIP codes 32550, 32540, 32541, 32578, 32580, 32435, 32439, and 32549 find us to be a perfect fit.
