  • What Waltham Parents are Saying

    about Bright Horizons Child Care

    "We were worried about who would replace Miss Jenn when she went on maternity leave, but Josh has exceeded our expectations! He is kind and fun with the kids, and Carter loves him! We have found him to be a great communicator with us parents and hope we continue to see him even when Jenn returns."
