Baby & Infant Care
Our Mission & Vision
It is our mission to provide the best possible home-based care for your little one and to provide a place where children know that they are accepted, loved, protected and wanted and to help each little one to have a strong sense of self-worth and purpose.
Each and every day we feel privileged to have the opportunity to see the world through the eyes of a child, to join in their laughter, and to be included in their games. This is how we, at Bright Horizons, have chosen to spend our days and to give all our love and attention to every little person.
Our goal is that you, as parents, feel completely confident and reassured when leaving your child in our care. We are fully committed to creating a strong bond with you and your little one, helping to ensure the best start to your child’s life.
We believe that the first years of a child’s life are by far the most important, helping to lay the foundation for all intellectual and emotional development to follow. Therefore, our focus is to provide a stimulating early care experience which promotes each child’s social/emotional, physical and cognitive development.
It is our hope that when the day is done and your little one goes home that they feel happy and proud of themselves and eager to express the happenings of their day to you.
Each child is different, unique and special and will be treated as such. These carefree years are far too short and therefore, we don’t rush children through this fun filled time in their lives. That is why, here at Bright Horizons Early Learning Centre we encourage every child to develop and grow at their own pace.
We look forward to the opportunity to care for your little one, while providing a positive influence in their lives.
Children need healthy, wholesome foods
Healthy Food for Growing Children
By eating family-style healthy food, children learn about making healthy choices and the connection between food and community.
