  • What Philadelphia Parents are Saying

    about Bright Horizons Child Care

    "Miss Emma - You are new to Sanaa's life, but you have clearly made an impact. She talks about you quite a bit, and your approval is clearly important to her as we're able to motivate her to make good choices by talking about how you might think of her behavior - and it works…a lot! :) Thank you!"
