    about Bright Horizons Child Care

    "Aeshia- We can't tell you how much we love having you as one of Olivia's teachers. You are so great with her and we (not so) secretly love catching her asleep in your arms. We feel so good knowing that you are a big part of her life. Thank you for all that you do!"
