Welcome to Bright Horizons at Hutchison

on the UCDavis campus


Welcome to a place of microscopes and mess, kaleidoscopes and computers, books and blocks; a warm soft place of beauty that has the tone and texture of childhood; a place filled with laps, smiles and hugs, and an abundance of good conversation. Hutchison Child Development Center is managed by Bright Horizons. We opened our doors to serve children and families in May, 2008. In each classroom, from infant to pre-kindergarten our highly skilled teachers provide the environment and experiences from which children learn and grow. At Bright Horizons Family Solutions, we recognize how important new beginnings are in each child's development and to each family. Our mission is to provide a caring and nurturing environment where your child can learn and develop. We offer full-time, and part-time child care. We are located on the Campus of UC Davis; near the recreation center.

What Parents are Saying

Our greatest advocates are also our closest friends.

"Thank you for all the love and care that Willem has received in the last 2.5 years from you. We think of you as the Willem whisperer. You understand our intelligent but very stubborn son and give him so much patience and love. You will be missed. We could not have chosen a better teacher for Willem."
