“Thank you Ms. Lindsey for being such a wonderful teacher! Madison is so excited to come to school each day, and as parents we couldn't happier. She is learning so much and really enjoys her days at Bright Horizons, thank you for all that you do to make preschool so fun and engaging for her!”

“Dear Angie, MJ and Lisa- Thank you so much for loving me each and every day! It really helps my mom and dad to know that I am in special place while they are at work. Thank you for being patient with me, helping me take longer naps (haha!) and teaching me. Love, Teddy”



“My son, Noah loves his teacher Ms.Lindsey! He came home from "school" the other day and told me he was cool because he had the same shoes as his teacher. He loves how interactive and helpful Ms.Lindsey is. I applaud her for all her hard work!”


Alyssa Ridley

“My daughter, Mia loves Angie. As soon as she sees her, she gets a huge grin on her face. There has been times where she practically leaps out of my arms to see her. I'm so grateful to have someone that she feels so comfortable with! Angie is calm, cool, collected, and very personable. She makes me feel like I'm dropping Mia off with a family member or friend. Thanks for all the hard work!!”
