What is Bright Horizons' process on checking the background of their employees?

Bright Horizons conducts a comprehensive background check on all prospective employees and frequent visitors. The background check consists of a county criminal record check for the past seven years performed in all counties that a person has lived, worked or attended school. In addition to the county criminal search , a sex offender search, OFAC search and a social security verification trace are also conducted. For all location employees, program licensing background checks required by the state are also performed.

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 three locations to be registered at, including the center you are most interested in. By registering, you are confirming your strong interest in all three 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.

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

Yes, Bright Horizons has an open door policy.  You are encouraged to visit your child anytime.

Do students receive outside time?

Daily outside times are split sessions in the mornings and afternoons, weather permitting. Our children enjoy their outside time with nature walks around the neighborhood affording them the opportunity to learn about the city around them (often an extension of classroom activities or discussion). Our dedicated outdoor space is an outdoor play space, where students can run, jump, and play. We also watch the air quality index to assure the weather is suitable for children based on their age.

Are there any residential buildings in the area for my family?

Yes, Lincoln Harbor is considered a second home for the Estuary and Riva Pointe residence. We are expecting two more luxury building in the community in the next coming years.

What enrichment classes do you offer?

We offer a wide educational variety of hands on and rich experiences with our enrichment program schedule. We have a dedicated Movement Matter Zone where children are encouraged with healthy routines around fitness and their natural ability to move with Yoga and Zumba. Children are encouraged daily to try our rocking Climbing Wall or to use the Balance Beam as they warm up for their activity. You can expect a Cooking and Art Cart filled with rich materials that expose children to different learning areas such as Math, Science, Cause & Effect, Nutrition and Social Skills to name a few. Our enrichments offer development, creativity and foster a sense of confidence. Our Preschool of Rock sessions will give children the chance to learn rhythms, sing songs and experiments with a variety of musical instruments. We look at our enrichment program as an extension of our Emergent Curriculum. We believe that our enrichments enhance our children's learning experiences through their natural sense of curiosity. We know that young children have a natural ability to learn additional languages; early exposure triggers this innate ability. Our language program uses interactive, play-based, age appropriate activities to leverage a child's innate abilities and encourage their ability to learn. With all our enrichments we believe our curriculum is reinforced and opens a world of possibilities for our young learners.
