  • What Santa Maria Parents are Saying

    about Bright Horizons Child Care

    "From the moment we drop off our child to the moment we pick her up we are comforted by the care, education and love you provide to her on a daily basis. With each day she is brighter, happier and a more well-rounded child."

  • Open to the Community!

    Medical Professionals have priority and sliding-scale rates

    We have four, extraordinary classrooms designed for infants, toddlers, preschool and kindergarten prep aged-children. Along with our large play yards and outdoor classroom curriculum, Marian Children's Center  provides an optimal environment for learning and growing.

    Currently, we have openings in our Preschool, for children ages 3 to 5 years.  The teacher of our new Kindergarten Prep group has an elementary school teaching credential and experience working with this important stage of educational development.
     
    Please call the center to schedule a tour with one of the directors. We would love to show you our Center!
