“I just really want to say thank you to Antonette and Margaret! they received Elena in their classroom and have been amazing with her! They are very professional, knowledgable and responsible with the kids. I feel like Elena knows something new every day when she comes home. We really appreciate their help and support.”


Alexandra (Elena's mom)

“We love Ms Flora & Ms Jackie! Jayden was very shy when he first started with Bright Horizon, now he gets along with everyone very well, really enjoys his time in the class and smiles/laughs all the time. We really appreciate all the help and support from Ms Flora & Ms Jackie!!”


Sally & Carl (Jayden Wang's parents)

“MiMi started Bright Horizons in Ms. Katie's class last October. She is now in Young Preschool 1, but still asks all the time to go see Ms. Katie! You have made a lasting impression on MiMi. Thank you for always bringing a positive attitude and a smile everyday! Keep up the great work!”


Hao & Rick (MiMi's parents)

“Although Ms. Toni is new and we are still getting to know each other, she has a very calm demeanor which is great for the classroom as the kids can be very energetic and out of control at times being toddlers. We've had nice conversations and look forward to getting to know her more. Keep up the good work Ms. Toni!”


Hao & Rick (MiMi's parents)

“Katie and Tameka were excellent teachers for Elena in the toddler classroom. Katie is always happy and energetic, pays attention to Elena, knows when to spoil her and how to manage her. It was an excellent experience to have Katie as a teacher! I know Elena loved her!”

Healthy Food for Growing Children

Healthy food is part of children’s development. Our menus align with our wellness commitment to Partnership for Healthier America. By eating family-style and serving themselves, children learn about making healthy choices and the connection between food and community.
