Meet Our Teaching Team

Rebecca R.

Orange Room

I love teaching because: children are joyful, intelligent, funny, and loving. The opportunity to influence and be a part of their lives is both fun and humbling!

Teaching since: 2015

Karen C.

Lead Teacher

I love teaching because: there is never a day where I'm not excited to see my students and explore with them. I am always smiling and laughing at the wonderful things they do.

Teaching since: 2011

Julie F.

Orange Room

I love teaching because: it's my passion. Opening their minds to new things and observing their growth; especially watching the "light bulb" go off in their head. It's magic!

Teaching since: 2012

“There’s not a minute I worry. I never say ‘I hope she’s ok;’ because I know she’s ok. She’s happy when I drop her off, and happy when I pick her up.”

quotes

Maloise Jean -nurse practitioner

“Knowing my children are being cared for by the amazing caregivers at Bright Horizons has dramatically decreased my fears. I know my kids are not only safe, but happy and learning.”

quotes

Dr. Robyn Howarth -pediatric neuro psychologist

“They’ve really been very receptive to hearing our ongoing feedback as we navigate this together. The staff has done an amazing job. It puts my mind at ease knowing that the center has remained a safe place of structure and normalcy.”

quotes

Dr. Robyn Howarth -pediatric neuro psychologist

“I’m not worried about her now, and I’ve never been worried about her. That center has become family to us. You never think someone is going to care as much about your child as you do. But I really think these teachers do. Their hearts are gold.”
