If I could rate the teachers separately from the front office personnel I would rate the teachers FIVE STARS! The teachers are phenomenal! Beware...if your child has a bad day (hour), a tantrum, an adjustment period, or any other typical or perceived as atypical toddler behavior that does not meet the expectations or skill set of the front office personnel then you will be asked to pick your child up as the only behavioral management tool is REDIRECTION; as told to me, "they are not equipped to handle children like this as a smaller school setting would be better. They don't want other children to see this behavior and visiting parents may think they are abusing children" (factor in these variables: 1 1/2 weeks of attendance, adjustment to a new school and new people, three-year toddler behavior, a flagrant comment that insinuates your child would be better served somewhere else after ONLY 2 out of 9 days of attendance of having a tantrum, not 9 out 9 days BUT 2 out 9 days, and whatever other factor that would entail beginning a new child care center (also, if visiting parents cannot distinguish between child abuse and behavior management then there is a whole other issue)). Hopefully, you work a job that allows you to leave to pick your child up in the event, which is likely, that your "problem" child cannot be "controlled." Now...if you are able to leave your job and go to the school and personally REDIRECT your child, with success, as your child is now CALM and QUIET...you will STILL have to take your child home regardless of the tuition you paid for trained professionals to care for your child. If you are okay with being made to feel like you are a bad parent, with a bad child, who is a terror, exhibits atypical toddler behavior (or at least according to the front office personnel's standards as "EVERY" child in that school is an angel and does not have a bad day) then this is the place for you.

My oldest daughter has been at Bright Horizons for over 2 years -- she started in the infant room and is now in the 2s. And now our youngest daught…
This daycare is extremely professional. My younger cousins attended this daycare for years, and the environment is extremely warm, safe and friendly! In the future when I do choose to have children, hopefully she will still own this business because if so, they will certainly be enrolled in this facility! I truly love how the respect is mutual when communicating with Ms. Pamela, and I can't wait to discuss enrollment for my children in the future!
I am amazed by the professionalism as well as the passion the owners have for all the children in their facility. All the teachers were very nice and really cared for their well being. I would recommend you bringing your child to a warm environment.
No no no. I am a professional daycare director in Nags Head with two teaching licenses. I was not impressed at all.
Such an amazing place! Maryann and literally ALL her staff is wonderful! After using different forms of childcare my child is literally the happiest here!! I feel so confident in leaving my child in their care. Fun, convenient, super clean, no stress! My child is so happy they genuinely care for my child - so much love! Safe boundaries and fun!! They are amazing! A+++
HORRIBLE DAYCARE!!!! BE AWARE STAY AWAY!!!!!!!!!!!!! Unprofessional Owner, Dingy, High turnover rate, They will label your child using outside vendors to compensate
Absolutely liked this place!!! My daughter had so much fun!!!! as soon as we left and was in daddys shoulders she was falling asleep!!! The place is awesome, I especially appreciate that 1. no matter how much mess there is tons of staff there to clean it up....and 2. that the staff is super amazing with my daughter!!! my daughter was not at all shy to say hello or talk !!! and I love that there is an infant zone in most of them!!!! very convenient and it excites me to bring my baby in November that even my infant can enjoy!
Went here today with our 4 year old and 6 month old and had a great day of hands on activities and learning through play. This is definitely something Toronto needs, our older daughter took part in all the scheduled activities and had a great time and it was so nice to have the play mat areas with mirrors for infants in every room, as it allowed both parents to watch the fun both children were having without either of us being left out. It can be pricey, however it was was worth it the staff were friendly and attentive and always giving advice. Considering how busy it can get it was very clean and staff could be seen always restocking paper, craft supplies, sorting and cleaning toys. Everything is child friendly from lots of high chairs, stools in the bathroom and a comfy nursing room. So sad it ends on the end of the year but will definitely support the building of a permanent centre.
My 7 month old had a fantastic time playing music and painting! Looking forward to going back and exploring more areas! It was clean with lots of bathrooms and places to take an overwhelmed infant for a few minutes of downtime. Can't say enough wonderful things about the staff. They were actively helpful and friendly. Really engaged with the kids and were generally lovely! I seriously love this place! If you have an infant don't worry - there is plenty to do outside the specific infant area!
This is the school you have always wanted to take your child to! Great staff and facilities. Plus the staff really know their stuff
