    about Bright Horizons Child Care

    "Anieka has made our son Ben's time in her classroom educational and fun. She has always welcomed us and Ben each morning, taking time from the busy start of the day to greet us. She knows Ben well and we couldn't ask for a more thoughtful teacher. Thank you, Anieka!"
