    about Bright Horizons Child Care

    "We love Theo so much. Every day it makes me happy to leave EC with her. Theo really takes the time to get to know each child and she has mastered being loving but firm--which is just the kind of parents my husband and I try to be. Love the continuity of things at school and home. Thank you Theo!"
