Any parent remembers the first day they leave their little one at day care or at school. The only thing that eases the anxiety is the knowledge that you have left them in competent and caring hands.

The staff at Bright Horizons understands. “We are committed to providing the highest-quality child care, early education, and work/life solutions in the world,” stated Sandy Cook, Director of the Bright Horizons in Del Mar.

With programs that have been proven successful in North America, Europe, and India, Bright Horizons sets the industry standard, providing employer-sponsored childcare, early education, after-school programs, and back-up care for children and the elderly. The only child care organization to be named in Fortune Magazine’s “100 Best Companies to Work For in America,” they are also partners in Michelle Obama’s Let’s Move Child Care initiative, leading by example across the U.S. in their efforts to ensure kids get a healthy start in life.


Bright Horizons provides a rich and nurturing learning environment tailored to the needs of each individual child. “Our curriculum adapts to the changing needs, interests, and abilities of each child in our care, “explained Cook. “Our goal is to unlock your child’s academic potential by fostering a love for learning.”

Skilled teachers are the key to creating the kind of safe, innovative environment that gives children the freedom to tap into that potential. “With caring, well-trained, and experienced teachers as guides, our curriculum encourages discovery within a stimulating environment that can nurture each child’s curiosity, potential, and growth,” described Cook.

Description:  Childhood is the beginning of a life adventure – an early exploration into one’s world and self. Our goal at Bright Horizons Del Mar is to provide a safe, clean, encouraging environment for the child to explore the world around him/her. Our teachers are professional and qualified in the field of early childhood development. Their primary role is to help each child playfully interact with the learning environment and with other children. Children learn that a healthy self-concept includes being a valued member of their group. Exploring is so much fun when you can share your new discoveries with a friend!
