Frequently Asked Questions

What is Bright Horizons' process on checking the background of their employees?

Bright Horizons conducts a comprehensive background check on all prospective employees and frequent visitors. The background check consists of a county criminal record check for the past seven years performed in all counties that a person has lived, worked or attended school. In addition to the county criminal search , a sex offender search, OFAC search and a social security verification trace are also conducted. For all location employees, program licensing background checks required by the state are also performed.

Late Pick-up: What time do you have to pick up your child(ren) without penalty of increased rate?
The Center closes at 6:30 p.m. It is stressful for a child to be left at the Center after closing, so we encourage parents to pick up at their scheduled time of departure. A Late Pick-up fee will be charged for each child remaining in the center after the Center closes at 6:30. The Late Pick-up rate is $10 for any portion of the first ten (10) minutes after the center closes and an additional $1 per minute after the first ten minutes.
Parent Involvement: What role do parents play in the childcare center?
Parents are a vital part of our program. Your involvement, support and satisfaction are keys to our success! We encourage regular visits, as well as participation in special events & activities, field trips and sharing your talents. We also have a Parent Partnership Committe active in the center. This committee works directly with the center management to plan center events, address concerns, and asssit in creating a wonderful environment for our families and staff in the center. There are many opportunities for parents to participate in Parent Partnership meetings, attend workshops and center events.

Regular communication is also essential through face-to-face conversation, phone calls and written notes. Bright Horizons conducts annual parent satisfaction surveys to help us constantly improve our work with your family.

Are all staff trained in CPR and First Aid?

All Bright Horizons staff are trained regularly in CPR, even if not required by the state. First Aid is taught as required by state licensing agency/regulations so that you can feel confident that your child is safe and receiving the best care possible at our center.

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 3 locations to be registered at, including the center you are most interested in.  By registering, you are confirming your strong interest in all 3 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.

Enrollment Options: What enrollment options are available?
The center is only accepting full time enrollments. If you only need occasional care, you may use the Center for Back-up care, when space is available in our regular program. Please call ahead to arrange for care. The cost will be our daily rate.
Pre-K: Will there be a state funded Pre-K program?
The Center is currently offering a State funded Pre-K class. The center also offers before and after care for an additional fee. Please contact the center for additional information on the program and availibility.
