Our NAEYC Accreditation

Bright Horizons is committed to 100% NAEYC (National Association for the Education of Young Children) accreditation for all of our eligible child care centers and preschools.

Why NAEYC? Based on a multi-step process of continuous evaluation and improvement, NAEYC accreditation is the most comprehensive in the field, ensuring that our programs are informed by research and demonstrate high-quality standards.

NAEYC accreditation is our commitment to families. It is one way we provide the very best care and education for young children. Bright Horizons goes beyond what a traditional daycare would offer in order to establish a strong foundation for success in school and life.
