I’m not worried about her now, and I’ve never been worried about her. That center has become family to us. You never think someone is going to care as much about your child as you do. But I really think these teachers do. Their hearts are gold.

quotes

- Dr. Julia Rosebush, pediatric infectious disease specialist

Knowing my children are being cared for by the amazing caregivers at Bright Horizons has dramatically decreased my fears. I know my kids are not only safe, but happy and learning. I love that they have a structure that allows them to maintain some normalcy.

quotes

- Dr. Robyn Howarth, pediatric neuro psychologist

They’ve really been very receptive to hearing our ongoing feedback as we navigate this together. The staff has done an amazing job. It puts my mind at ease knowing that the center has remained a safe place of structure and normalcy.

quotes

- Dr. Robyn Howarth, pediatric neuro psychologist

There’s not a minute I worry. I never say ‘I hope she’s ok;’ because I know she’s ok. She’s happy when I drop her off, and happy when I pick her up.

quotes

- Maloise Jean, nurse practitioner

He [the center director] sent us updates every time something would change. And his updates made it clear they were following CDC guidelines and that they had someone who they were relying for information. And what he was sending me was spot on. I didn’t have time to keep up with the day care. And I didn’t have to. It was nice to know they were on top of it so I didn’t have to be – and I didn’t have to worry.
