What if I’d like to enroll but the center doesn’t have space available?
We suggest you complete the Wait List Registration Form (located under For Our Parents section at the top of our web-site) as soon as you are eligible and submit it to the Bright Horizons Early Learning Center at 1505. This is a client based center so you must be a full time employee of Chevron. Upon verification of your eligibility and receipt of your paid registration fee, 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, we can assist you in seeking alternate care arrangements. Depending on your location, a space may be available at our community based Bright Horizons center, Hearts Home. 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 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 is The World At Their Fingertips?
Our research-based World at Their Fingertips® curriculum meets children where they are developmentally, with Signature Practices that build confidence and excitement about learning at every age and stage. In every classroom, our goal is to help children do more than learn; it’s to cultivate the joy of learning. And our emergent approach — teaching skills by leveraging a child’s own interests — enables teachers to tailor activities and projects for the specific talents and needs of each child in the class.

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.
