Looking for Child Care?
Choosing child care is one of the most important decisions you’ll ever make as a parent. Quality child care impacts how children learn, think, develop and behave. It encourages curiosity, a love of learning, and prepares children for school.

"Play is really misunderstood among parents and even sometimes educators. It's really a complex form of interacting and communicating. Einstein talks about play being children's research, their laboratory."
"It's a really sophisticated form of development. Children get to do higher order thinking and synthesizing of lots of different things. It's a coming together of cognitive skills and social-emotional skills in one experience."
- Rachel Robertson, Vice President of Education and Development for Bright Horizons, Child Care Exchange
