    about Bright Horizons Child Care

    "Thank you both for being such great and supportive teachers for Maika. Maika has learned so much from both of you, and you have helped her to better connect with the other kids and make friends, which is fantastic to see! She loves going to pre-school, and that is very much thanks to the two of you!"

  • Great Places for Babies

    A Day in the Life of Infants

    We love babies and babies love Bright Horizons on the Charles!
    Babies are born with a job to do: to learn about the world and develop into the very best people they can be. This learning and development starts with exploration, and is supported by a daily routine that inspires new discoveries.
