Bright Horizons is More than Daycare

Early Education & Preschool for Toddlers

Every child has a different way of learning. Bright Horizons teachers take the time to figure out what interests each toddler and zero in on those things that spark curiosity and make learning fun. Our goal is to provide personalized care that enables children to become the leaders, artists, and innovators they’re meant to be.

Toddler Teachers who inspire a Love of Learning

The heart of every Bright Horizons toddler preschool class is our caring teachers. Passionate about early education, our teachers are focused on figuring out what motivates each child to learn and supporting their interests through ordinary moments and big milestones. To support our teachers and ensure the highest quality education in our toddler daycare programs, we offer a nationally recognized training program and tuition benefits that enable teachers to earn early education degrees for free. We are proud to be the first child care program to do so. It’s one more way that we invest in the care and education of your child.

How is workplace financial wellness linked to healthcare spending?

Employees that are financially stressed are more likely to fall ill and require medical attention. If an employer provides health insurance, this cost will be paid by the company. An organization may find it to be cost-effective to increase workplace financial wellness in order to reduce healthcare spending.
