    and NAEYC Accredited!

    Here at  Bright Horizons at Columbus Circle we are proud to share that we earned our NAEYC accreditation nearly one year ago!

    What is NAEYC Accreditation? 
    Accreditation by the National Association for Education of Young Children is a highly-regarded honor within the early childhood field.  Accredited schools, such as ours, demonstrate excellence across 10 standards, showcasing their commitment to providing the highest quality learning and care environment for children and families. 

    Thank you to our dedicated teachers for their hard work everyday to meet and exceed the NAEYC accreditation standards, and to the children and families in our care for sharing their experience with us!
