    about Bright Horizons Child Care

    "You will never know just how grateful we are for everything you did for Sofia while she was in the infant room. You were wonderful with her and I knew by her interaction with you that she loved you too. The journal you made for us was so amazing and appreciated. We'll miss you terribly!"

    Family Style Dining helps children learn about portion size and food preference. When foods are pre-plated, children never develop the ability to read their body’s cues. At the Citi Family Center the children eat Family Style starting in the toddler classes.

    Children toddlers and up eat family styles for all meals.  The center serves healthy meals for breakfast, lunch, snack and supper.  Our menus are over 80% fresh fruits and vegetables.  We take pride in intoducing the childen to new foods from diverse backgrounds.
