BeKare Child Development Center

Welcome to Our Center

Welcome to BEKare Child Development Center, managed by Bright Horizons Family Solutions! We’ve been serving families in our community for more than 15 years, and were one of the first Birmingham centers to achieve NAEYC reaccreditation. Our dedicated teachers use hands-on activities to stimulate and engage children with the curriculum. There's something for everyone: a STEM lab to encourage the development of critical thinking, unique outdoor classrooms that introduce the concepts of science and nutrition through gardening, a mud kitchen to let children be messy scientists, and a reading nook that fosters a love of literacy. Come visit us!
