  • What Downers Grove Parents are Saying

    about Bright Horizons Child Care

    "Our son is a transfer from another BH location and one thing I've noticed in his first 2 months is that they put so much thought into the daily lesson plans. There is so much variety and he comes home and has LEARNED about the weekly topic. We appreciate all that they do, which we know is A LOT."
