I'm not quite ready to enroll in the center but I am interested in continuing to hear about what is happening at the center. How can I get information more regularly?

We encourage any family interested in center information, regular updates and invitations to the many events we are planning, to contact us.

What if I’d like to enroll but the center doesn’t have space available?

We suggest you register with Bright Horizons.  You can select up to 3 locations to be registered at, including the center you are most interested in.  By registering, you are confirming your strong interest in all 3 centers.  We will add you to our wait list and you will be offered a space as soon as one becomes available.  While waiting for a space to become available at your first choice location, many families will choose to enroll at their 2nd or 3rd choice temporarily until space becomes available at the center they are most interested in.  In many centers, a child currently enrolled at a Bright Horizons location has priority over the general community so enrolling at another location will not only solve your care needs but will also give you additional priority in getting into your 1st preference.  Our goal is to accommodate families as soon as space allows.  During the entire process, we will keep in touch with you regarding your status.

What is NAEYC accreditation?

The National Association for the Education of Young Children (NAEYC) has developed standards to define and recognize quality child care programs. In order to be accredited, a child care program must meet a variety of strict criteria, including having a well-trained faculty, good staff-child ratios and group sizes, and a comprehensive curriculum, as well as meet stringent health and safety standards. The program must also provide meaningful opportunities for family involvement.

May I bring my child to the Center for Back-Up Care if he/she is sick?

The Back-Up Care Program is intended to be used by families who typically have other arrangements for care, but those arrangements become unavailable on a day when the parent is still needed at work. The Center offers a Health and Wellness Program that is supervised by our full-time Registered Nurse, Victoria Baranowski; however, the Center does not provide all-day sick care for any child with an excludable or contagious illness. If your child is not well enough to attend his/her regular school or program for the day, then he/she is not well enough to use the Back-Up Program at the Child Development Center.

Can I visit my child at the center anytime I’d like to?

Are all staff trained in CPR and First Aid?

All Bright Horizons staff are trained regularly in CPR, even if not required by the state. First Aid is taught as required by state licensing agency/regulations so that you can feel confident that your child is safe and receiving the best care possible at our center.

Can I enroll my child for a half day?

No. The Center offers full-day care for all programs. Families enrolled in the Primary Care Program may attend for two, three, or five full days per week. Part-time enrollment (anything less than five days per week) must be consistent days from week to week. Any requests for changes in scheduled days must be submitted to the Business Manager in writing and will be accommodated in the order that they are received and that space becomes available.
