About Our Staff

Our experienced staff encourages each child’s individuality in order to promote a positive self image. Bright Horizons teachers are well trained to provide support during the sensitive time of separation from parents and adjustment to a new environment. A primary caregiver is assigned to each child and family to ensure individualized care, good communication, and parent-caregiver partnership.
