    about Bright Horizons Child Care

    "We love Ms. Chew, she is the best daycare teacher. She gave us our tour when we were so nervous to leave our 4 month old at daycare, but she loves our son and takes great care of him. We always know Owen is in good hands when he's with Ms. Chew. She is so sweet and positive!"

  • What Makes Us a Unique Place to Learn?

    Exploring creativity

    The center has an amazing ArtSmart program with 2 dedicated Art Studios (both inside and out) and a dedicated art teacher with a background in art. The art program offers children in every age group (including infants) unique and natural art supplies to develop group and individual a-typical art projects that are handsomely displayed throughout the building. People often comment how the center feels much like an art gallery with various sculptures, large and small canvases, paintings, and natural outdoor elements.
