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.

Strict safety and security procedures are designed to keep our families and staff protected.
During your search for the perfect child care partner, this is among the most important questions you can ask. For over 30 years, we’ve been a company that is guided by our HEART Principles and an unerring belief in putting children first.
At Bright Horizons, we know that childhood is a treasured time. We believe it is our responsibility to provide environments and experiences that capture the joys of childhood, nurture each child’s individual growth and development, and pave the way for success in school and life. We promise to:
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.
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.
