Health & Safety at Bright Horizons
Bright Horizons is trusted by parents around the world — including many doctors and nurses on the frontlines of COVID-19 — to care for their children. Learn about our updated health and safety practices in response to the pandemic.
Partnering for Safety
We’ve partnered with pediatric infectious disease specialist Dr. Kristin Moffitt of Boston Children’s Hospital to enhance our health and safety protocols, and we continue to consult with experts to ensure our practices evolve with what is known about COVID-19, so that children, families, and teachers are protected.
Our Enhanced Protocols
Health Screenings and Face Coverings
Our staff will perform daily health screens and temperature checks on adults and children arriving at the center, and wear face coverings at all times.
Distancing and Classroom Size
We will practice physical distancing by reducing classroom sizes, keeping consistent groupings, and limiting outdoor play limited to one group at a time.
Updated Visitor Policy
Essential visitors, including families dropping off and picking up, will be limited to the lobby. Nonessential visitors will not be permitted in the center.
Your Child's Well-Being
Our focus is on the health, safety, and well-being of each child and family — that also includes emotional well-being. Our daily classroom activities include mindfulness, recognizing emotions, empathy development, and friendship building.
Our teachers are diving deep into what it means to be an educator and how to create meaningful experiences and learning opportunities. We are stronger and more united and I am ever so grateful to have had this experience with this incredible team of teachers!

Honestly, there isn’t anywhere else I’d rather be. The true heroes are the healthcare workers, but teaching is my superpower! I’m here for the kids!

I feel so honored to be able to help our families here at the Center. Being with the University of Iowa Hospitals and Clinics is amazing. Knowing that by me coming to work and being able to serve them through this so they can serve those in need is a great feeling.

The highlight of my day is seeing how the children come in with confidence and feel so secure with us wearing masks. I love seeing them smile and most importantly knowing that they feel and are safe with us.
