    about Bright Horizons Child Care

    "I just want to say thank you to Kim for all she does with my child. She greets Kierra with hugs and kisses when we arrive in the classroom. She has a warm and inviting spirit! You can tell she has a passion for children, through her conversations with me and Kierra. Keep up the good work!"

    Well Aware and Staying Healthy

    Our center environment offers children a healthy and safe place to develop and learn.
