Allison Q. -Bright Horizons Parent

“Thank you so much for taking care of our baby girl. She always smiles when she sees you at drop off and we can tell she is happy. We appreciate that more than we can put into words. ”

quotes

Christine H. -Bright Horizons Parent

“Dear Miss Jenny & Miss Heather - I've known you since I was three months old. You changed my diapies, snuggled with me while feeding me bottles, and taught me to do cool dances (like row, row, row the boat....a personal fav). The three of us are tight. And I miss you...now that I am a toddler and all. But I think of you every time my mommy puts teeny tiny pigtails into my hair. You are great teachers and I hope you know how much you are loved. Hugs!”

quotes

Eleanor

“Miss Nicole & Miss Nicole - thank you for welcoming me into your class and being so bright and happy every day! I love being around you while I explore. I love that you sing and dance to Barney with me. Barney is my second favorite thing.....behind you two. Hugs!”

quotes

Eleanor

“My appreciation for the teachers at Bright Horizons goes beyond the words that I can express. They extend themselves daily to our children's learning. Both of my sons were more than prepared to move forward in Kindergarten, thanks to Bright Horizons.”
