    about Bright Horizons Child Care

    "We want to thank you for are your hard work day in and out. We know it's not easy always easy with one, but you all come in every day to teach these children with patience, care and a smile on your face! Since he started the Toddler room, Alex has grown quite a bit in his motor skills and vocabulary - so we thank you for all your work and attention you've put to get him this far =) We like seeing the dailiy picture/activity reports and we are always excited to see and hear him do something new. Lastly, it's always comforting to see that Alex is excited and enjoys coming every day!"
