We Asked & Parents Told Us: Why Child Care Works

What do you find reassuring about the child care environment?

We’ve been with the center since my daughter was three months of age and now, she’s almost four. I’ve watched her grow; I’ve watched her develop. I know we are living in unprecedented times — it is so different than anything we could have imagined, but I have been reassured from day one about the safety and nurturing environment that Bright Horizons has provided for my family. My daughter learned to write her name during this pandemic, so while there are so many things happening around us that are concerning, I see these silver linings. I see that her education and her chance to grow as a child wasn’t severely impacted, which I am — and will always be — eternally grateful for.

What factored into your decision to enroll in child care?

Having Isaac home while we were both working from home was a full-time job in itself — in addition to our regular full-time jobs. One of the reasons we decided to have him return to daycare was that we wanted him to be around his peers, to have that social development, and to interact with his teachers and children around his age group. The second reason was that he was honestly ready to go back — he’s an only child and he missed being around other children. We are all just really glad that we made the decision to return. He’s definitely happy being back around his friends.

What are the best aspects of having child care?

Learning, learning, learning! My daughter comes home and shows us so many things that she’s learned, whether it’s sign language, a new word, or even how she can do certain things. She is almost one — she’s a bit of a daredevil and tends to get into things, but her teachers have helped her learn about cause and effect. Child care has been very beneficial for my daughter’s development and has also created a routine for her. Plus, it makes my life easier because she’s not cranky or fussy when she comes home. As scary as it was during the pandemic, we figured that continuing to go to child care was important for her because it was a familiar environment and routine. And I think that’s important for her development.
