[Lyons Falls, NY, April 4, 2012] – Bright Horizons Family Solutions® has been chosen by Otis Technology to form an exciting new partnership through management of its on-site child care center, on the Otis Technology Campus in Lyons Falls. Bright Horizons, the world’s leading provider of employer-sponsored child care will work to build on the popular program that cares for children of Otis Technology employees and the surrounding community.
“Our child care center has been an important part of our culture and employee benefits at Otis Technology and we are very pleased to partner with Bright Horizons to manage the program, which we had previously self-operated,” said Doreen Garrett, CEO Otis Technology.
“Working with Bright Horizons will give our teachers and staff access to a broad range of expert knowledge and resources to ensure the best experiences for children and families. We look forward to building on our program, and this next step in our journey of continual improvement,” Christina Dickinson, Director of Childcare.
Since opening, the Caboodles Early Childhood Center has been an essential part of the organization’s ability to support employees as the company has grown. Otis Technology parents and grandparents benefit from having a solution that helps them to integrate their work and personal lives knowing that their children and grandchildren are being cared for in a high-quality and convenient program.
The state-of-the-art center is open 5:45 a.m. to 6:00 p.m., Monday through Friday and provides care for children six weeks to 12-years-old. In addition to the full-time program for infants through pre-K, the center provides a school age program for children five to 12 years-old, with before and after school programs during the school year as well as a summer program.
Bright Horizons will operate the Caboodles center as it does each of its programs, according to the highest standards of excellence as defined by the National Association for the Education of Young Children (NAEYC). The Bright Horizons curriculum empowers children to be confident and successful lifelong learners. The curriculum places a strong emphasis on the development of language, math, science, and social skills and incorporates the key elements that contribute to a child’s readiness for school and academic success.
“We are very pleased to have been selected by Otis Technology to manage their program and to work with an organization that understands the importance that high-quality child care and family-friendly benefits play in the lives of employees,” said Bright Horizons CEO David Lissy. “With the number of families with two working parents at an all-time high, high-quality, reliable child care is more important than ever and we look forward to supporting Otis Technology families and the community.”
