Is there a playground on-site?
We have 2 different playground areas at our facility. Each space is uniquely designed to meet the growing needs of our children. Infants enjoy 3 different ways to spend their time outdoors. We have a covered lanai style patio which is completely protected from the sun and other elements. Its surface is covered with an "astro turf" type grass. Infants also have a large grass area with a shade canopy. Our babies also enjoy buggy rides on our campus in our 4 and 6 seater wagons equiped with car seat style seats. Our one and two year olds have a large playground in our interior courtyard. They enjoy a large climbing structure which is completed shaded from the Florida Sun. They have a unique sand and water feature on their playground which during the warm months provide fun and cool relief. They have a large grass area, complete with an outdoor xylophone, playhouse and an ever-changing climbing structure. Our 3-5 year olds have a large playground shaded by a large old moss covered tree. Children enjoy sitting under the tree on one of our benches reading stories with teachers or chatting with friends. This playground also has a large climbing structure which is shaded by a large overhead canopy. Our preschoolers have fun riding bikes, scooters, gardening, diging in the sand or playing with water. Part of the playground has a large open field, perfect for kicking a ball, playing tag with friends or simply looking for a unique insect or two. A outdoor easel provides a place for young artists to practice their painting and other art materials. A stage is available for children to explore the dramatic arts. Our school age children have a space all their own. A tree shaded ampitheatre provides a spot for hanging out with friends, exploring their dramatic side or just reading under the shade of a tree. A large grass area allows for some soccer and other ball games. A basketball court provides space for a game of one-on-one or a game of "horse". The playground also sports a 10' x 10' chess board complete with 2' pieces! What a great way to learn this strategic and challenging game, or a game of checkers using frizbees! Our School-agers also enjoy the benefits of our on-ste pool. At least twice a week during the warm school year months and daily during the summer, our school-age children enjoy open swim, completely supervised by both their teacher and a trained life guard.

What is NAEYC accreditation?
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.

What if I’d like to enroll but the center doesn’t have space available?
We suggest you register with Bright Horizons. You can select up to three locations to be registered at, including the center you are most interested in. By registering, you are confirming your strong interest in all three centers. We will add you to our wait list and you will be offered a space as soon as one becomes available. While waiting for a space to become available at your first choice location, many families will choose to enroll at their 2nd or 3rd choice temporarily until space becomes available at the center they are most interested in. In many centers, a child currently enrolled at a Bright Horizons location has priority over the general community so enrolling at another location will not only solve your care needs but will also give you additional priority in getting into your 1st preference. Our goal is to accommodate families as soon as space allows. During the entire process, we will keep in touch with you regarding your status.
