“Thank you so much for all of the extra love and support that you've given to Sydney over the last couple of months. You have played such a big role in easing the transition into childcare for both of us. Thanks for being her special buddy and giving her lots of extra snuggles when I'm not there.”



“The Infant team in Wayland has been so good to Sydney during her first couple months at the center. Sydney absolutely lights up as soon as she sees them which makes me feel so good every morning when I drop her off. We truly appreciate all of your support and everything you do day in and day out.”



“The kindness you show towards our daughter each and every day reflects in her. We could not be more thrilled to have Mr. Marco and Miss Shannon as her teachers. We know that every day we drop her off she will be loved and taught exciting new things. Thank you from the bottom of our heart.”


Noreen and Tim Coskren

“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. ”


Christine H. -Bright Horizons Parent

“Katie and Cindy have seamlessly become an extension of our family in River's life. Both are so caring and nurturing to River. I'm so happy to have their support and devotion. It is because of them that I feel such a high degree of trust when I leave River at the center every day.”
