    about Bright Horizons Child Care

    "Miss Liz is an amazing preK teacher! After a bad experience elsewhere, Andrew was not enthusiastic about attending Bright Horizons at first but Miss Liz welcomed him with open arms and now Tuesday is his favorite day of the week! She created a safe & warm environment for Andrew to learn and grow!"
