What Makes Bright Horizons Unique
Culture: We pride ourselves on our World Class Welcome, our workplace inclusion and diversity, and our commitment to environments in which each person feels fully supported and comfortable bringing his or her full self to work. We’re also a company that believes in giving back, with many of our employees volunteering with the Bright Horizons Foundation for Children.
Curriculum Quality: We are proud that the majority of our eligible centers successfully achieve NAEYC or similar accreditation. We’re equally proud of our teachers who create environments that support children to become confident, successful, lifelong learners; and who use our World at Their Fingertips® curriculum and the Teaching Strategies GOLD tool to actively observe, document, and assess.
Career Path: We offer more than a “job,” we offer a career path that will challenge and engage you, while growing your knowledge and experience in the early childhood field. Many of our company’s leaders started as interns or part-time college students. When the time is right, you can apply for a position with us and be eligible to receive a special sign-on bonus.
Additional Opportunities: As a Bright Horizons intern or employee, you will be invited to attend local trainings/workshops on early childhood topics. You’ll have access to money-saving discount programs for commuting expenses, cell phone plans, movie tickets, gym memberships and more. Students who are hired and work 20+ hours are also eligible for our tuition reimbursement program.

"As a student teacher, I realized that I loved the interactions, the philosophies, the parent partnerships and the overall approach to learning at Bright Horizons. I looked forward to coming to the classroom and learning new things. After my course was complete, I didn't want to leave. I had grown to love the children and the staff that I interacted with every day. "
