Teachers Who Care

Bright Horizons teachers are passionate about the role they play in families’ lives — and dedicated to creating safe, loving, and caring environments for all the children in their care.

The relief my husband and I experienced when we dropped our son off for his first day of preschool can’t be described. I rely so heavily on Bright Horizons to help me navigate the developmental stages he’s going through. The teachers are always there to help — they are part of my village.


- Bright Horizons parent

It takes a team to raise a child. Bright Horizons was on my team. My son still talks about his wonderful teachers! They had a tremendous impact on him and his mom. I am forever grateful.


- Bright Horizons parent

We can clearly see what a positive impact Bright Horizons has had on our son. He’s communicating better and showing more confidence in social settings. We’ve also seen a positive increase in his academics — he’s much more keen to learn new things.


- Bright Horizons parent

When it was time for me to return to work after my son was born, I knew that I wanted him enrolled at Bright Horizons. What I didn’t know was how much of a partner the teachers and staff would be in his development.

The center goes above and beyond to ensure the children have a loving and safe environment, and the flexibility it provides a working parent is absolutely invaluable.

Does Bright Horizons have a waiting list? What do I do if I want to enroll in a program and space is not available?

Depending on where you live, and schedule you need for care, you may see child care waitlists. You can select and register with up to three Bright Horizons child care locations, including the center in which you are most interested. By registering, you are confirming interest in all three centers. Once registered, we will add you to our waitlist and offer you a space as soon as one becomes available. Our goal is to accommodate families as soon as space allows, and so during the entire process, we will keep in touch with you regarding your status. While waiting for a space to become available at the first-choice location, many families enroll at their second or third choices temporarily until space becomes available at their first-choice centers. Enrolling at another location will not only solve your immediate child care needs, but will provide you priority access to your first preference.

Is it safe to start child care right now?

Bright Horizons is trusted by parents including many doctors and nurses, to care for their children. We’ve partnered with pediatric infectious disease specialist Dr. Kristin Moffitt of Boston Children’s Hospital to implement enhanced safety protocols for all areas including daily health screening, distancing, cleaning, and disinfecting. Our goal is to ensure that all of our health and safety practices in every center are in line with recommendations provided by the CDC and requirements of state and local municipalities. All Bright Horizons centers have the well-being of children, families, and staff at their core.

Ask each child care provider you're considering to take the time to explain all health and safety policies to you. Consider asking:

1. How will you contact me if my baby gets sick at child care?

2. Can a mildly ill child (stuffy nose, cough) still come to child care?

3. How do you decide if a child needs emergency medical care?

4. Are daycare staff trained in first aid and CPR?

5. How do you approach wellness, exercise, healthy eating and self-care for children?

How can I compare child care costs?

Child care costs will depend upon on your child’s age when they begin care as well as the center location where you'd like to attend. To get a customized tuition quote for Bright Horizons, we will set up a Zoom or in-person meeting with you to discuss your family’s needs and calculate what tuition would look like for you. Use our search by zip to find a Bright Horizons near you.
