Like everyone else, Positive Bright Start classrooms and office operations have been disrupted by personal health concerns and public safety orders.  Needs and orders continue to evolve daily, hourly, but here’s where we’re at right now.   


By order of the Lawrence Douglas County Health Department, our classrooms are closed for the next 14 days.   If you have a question or concern regarding the classroom, you may contact Kristi McAlister, service coordinator, by cell (785) 550-2409 or  If you’d like to contact a teacher in the classroom, you can reach Gwen at, or Alissa at


At this time each of our therapists has made her own decision about whether or not to see clients based on her personal risk, safety, and availability.  Please contact each directly about the status of your appointment or a concern.  You can reach

Marci Ramsay at, cell (785) 760-2362

Because some of our therapists do plan to continue to see clients on a limited basis, increased sanitation practices are in process.  Some toys have been removed from the waiting area and play doh from the playrooms.  KDHE approved bleach mixture will have been used on surfaces and toys throughout our spaces regularly.
