The tragic events at Sandy Hook Elementary School in Newtown, Connecticut have touched, shocked and saddened us all. It moves us especially as parents and as professionals whose job it is to nurture children and keep them safe.

We offer our resources to you to share with families in your organization, if you wish. Material developed by the late Jim Greenman and our current Vice President of Education and Development Linda Whitehead, including a webinar about how to talk to children about the tragedy, is available at http://www.brighthorizons.com/TalktoChildren/ and may be accessed by parents, educators, and anyone who might find them useful. Please share this link or any of the documents on the web site as you wish.

Our hearts, our thoughts, and our deepest sympathies are with the families of Sandy Hook Elementary School and the entire community of Newtown, Connecticut. The innocent and precious lives lost will inspire the entire Bright Horizons family in our work and all we do.


David Lissy
