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.

    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.
