Arrange child or elder care

Bright Horizons® benefits are here for your personal and professional needs

Note: Bright Horizons has made the proactive decision to temporarily close many child care centers. They will continue to provide in-home care for as long as it is safe to do so, taking appropriate precautionary measures.

Get started with Bright Horizons

When one of our kids gets sick, my husband and I scramble to figure out our plan. We don’t have family nearby so it means one of us taking the day off or working alternate schedules. Either way, it’s always exhausting.

When I discovered the back-up benefit, it was a lifesaver. We've used the in-home care multiple times, with excellent caregivers each time.
