Baby and You


The importance of childcare

For many of us, our earliest memories are from our days at nursery. If this isn’t enough of an incentive to choose a childcare provider that aims to inspire, nurture and develop young minds, then what is?

The decisions you make about your child’s care will influence the person your baby grows up to become. A childcare provider is more than just a professional, they’re personally invested in bringing out the best in your child. They’re a mentor, a teacher, a storyteller, an inventor and the friend that turns tears into laughter.

At Bright Horizons, we understand that finding the right balance between work and home life can be tricky. With over 300 settings across the UK and an ethos of flexibility, we are proud to provide a premium solution to childcare.

With so many childcare options, ranging from au pairs to employee-sponsored childcare, it can be daunting to know where to start, especially considering that flexibility and cost are far from the deciding factors. There’s a plethora of pros and cons to navigate for every childcare option, and it’s important to align these with your own values. This is demonstrated in a Childcare and Early Years Survey of Parents by the Department of Education where 58% of families recognised that their child’s educational and social development is a significant factor when choosing childcare.

Take your first step into the world of childcare by contacting Bright Horizons. Meet our team, ask any questions and come to discover what a typical day would entail. We would love to meet you and your little one and welcome you to the Bright Horizons family.
