As Bright Horizons educators, we promise to:
At Bright Horizons, healthy students are our top priority. With that in mind, we’re happy to announce our continued commitment to Partnership for Healthy America (PHA) through 2020! Founded in 2010, this nonprofit group was designed to address obesity and support the health of our nation’s youth. By promoting important elements such as physical activity, nutrition, gardening, and family engagement, PHA helps us lay the foundation for future healthy lives.
Our center is conveniently located off of Hwy 85 and Hwy 101. We are located in South San Jose behind the Santa Theresa Kaiser Hospital. If you are on Hwy 85 take the Cottle Road exit and make a left turn onto Hospital Pkwy. At the stop sign, make a Right turn and proceed around the hospital until you have completed a half circle. Make a Right onto Liska Lane. You are now facing the center, proceed down Liska and make a Left turn into our parking lot. Please ring the door bell under the key pad which is to your left.
We have a full service kitchen and we provide breakfast, lunch and pm snacks. This is included in your tuition.
We encourage any family interested in center information, regular updates and invitations to the many events we are planning, to contact us.

Yes! Bright Horizons strives to and has successfully accommodated a wide range of special needs and individual differences in our group programs. We believe in inclusive programs that attempt to meet the needs of a wide range of children and which focus on each child’s strengths. We support a collaborative team approach – the teacher, director, specialists, and parents. The team will work closely together to try to maximize each child’s opportunities for learning, growth, and development, and to attempt to eliminate any barriers or safety issues which a group program may present.
At all of our centers, rigorous health and safety practices are a foundation of the way we care for children. These include:
Strict safety and security procedures are designed to keep our families and staff protected.
The safety of the children in our care is our highest concern. Bright Horizons maintains stringent hiring practices and conducts criminal background checks on all teachers and caregivers in our centers. This check includes a criminal record search and a cross-reference check to determine prior convictions or other records of criminal activity that would call into question an employee’s’ suitability to care for children. Additional elements of our required background checks include verification through the Office of Foreign Asset Control and Sexual Offender Database Search. The frequency for updating criminal background checks for employees depends on state or other center-specific requirements.
Our research-based World at Their Fingertips® curriculum meets children where they are developmentally, with Signature Practices that build confidence and excitement about learning at every age and stage. In every classroom, our goal is to help children do more than learn; it’s to cultivate the joy of learning. And our emergent approach — teaching skills by leveraging a child’s own interests — enables teachers to tailor activities and projects for the specific talents and needs of each child in the class. Learn more about our specialized programs for babies, toddlers and preschool children, and how we prepare children for school and life beyond.
All Bright Horizons center staff are trained in CPR and first aid. Once an employee is hired, they are required to fulfill 16 hours of training through our new employee orientation. This training takes place over a two-day period, where the employee spends time observing each age group in the center. Teachers must successfully complete first aid and CPR training, in addition to local licensing and/or Department of Health requirements (e.g., food handler safety card.)

The National Association for the Education of Young Children (NAEYC) has developed standards to define and recognize quality child care programs. In order to be accredited, a child care program must meet a variety of strict criteria, including having a well-trained faculty, good staff-child ratios and group sizes, and a comprehensive curriculum, as well as meet stringent health and safety standards. The program must also provide meaningful opportunities for family involvement.
Finding the right daycare and early education solution can be a lengthy process. Our best recommendation is to start early! Even if your preferred Bright Horizons center doesn’t currently have space available, we still recommend registration for your first choice center. At Bright Horizons, you can register at up to three locations. Once registered, we will add you to our wait list and you will be offered a space as soon as one is available. For many families on a wait list, Bright Horizons offers the ability to enroll at a nearby center on a temporary basis, or until your first choice center becomes available.
