Bright Horizons Opening New Daycares in Williamsburg and Downtown Brooklyn

August 29, 2012

Bright Horizons will be making an impact on Brooklyn daycare in 2013. They will open not one, but two enormous daycare facilities in the next year: one in downtown Brooklyn and the other in Williamsburg.

The location in downtown Brooklyn will be at 345 Adams St across from Brooklyn Borough Hall.  The Brooklyn Eagle reports that the space will be around 15,000 square feet.  In Williamsburg, Bright Horizons is leasing approximately 21,000 square feet in a new residential building at 175 Kent Ave., between North 3rd and North 4th Streets.

Who is Bright Horizons?

According to Wikipedia, “The Bright Horizons operates more than 900 child care centers worldwide, more than 550 across the U.S. and more than 100 in the UK and Ireland.  In 2008, Bright Horizons Family Solutions was named for the ninth time to Fortune Magazine’s annual “100 Best Places to Work in America.”[3] Bright Horizons continues to be named on the list for the tenth, eleventh, and twelfth time in 2009, 2010, and 2011.”

On their site, Bright Horizons say that they not only provide daycare but “in addition, we provide back-up care solutions for children and elders, college counseling services, and an array of other work/life solutions for working families.”

I toured one in Chicago for my sister and found it had a focused curriculum and enthusiastic teachers. Anyone had experience with them?
