You need daycare, and you need it now. Vacation is almost over, the school year is about to begin, and there’s not an abundance of choice in the Williamsburg/Greenpoint area. Okay, deep breath.
What to do? Well, there is a brand-new option for your consideration, as corporate daycare giant Bright Horizons has announced the opening of a center at 175 Kent Avenue. The Kent Avenue facility will offer care for infants and toddlers. Included in the curriculum are Preschool and ‘Kindergarten Prep’.
Applying to preschool and/or daycare is not an easy process, nor is it any easy decision. Fortunately, there is a plethora of information available on the web about Bright Horizons. Here’s the link to the Kent Avenue section of their site.
Of course, daycare is not cheap, however, Bright Horizons is the largest provider of employer-sponsored child care in the country. Check with your HR department, you may be in luck.
First up is Bright Horizons’ Preschool Open House on Wednesday, August 21, from 5:00 to 7:00 p.m. Next, the Grand Opening Celebration is slated for Saturday, September 21, from 10:00 to 2:00 p.m., with offerings of refreshments, family activities, and live entertainment.
