Preferred Enrollment at Bright Horizons centers
Preferred Enrollment may give you access to available full-time child care spaces in Bright Horizons centers ahead of the general community. While Preferred Enrollment is free of charge, you do pay an initial registration fee, which will be applied as a credit (up to a maximum of $250) toward your next tuition payment after 30 days of enrollment. When selecting a center, you can download a coupon, which you should print and bring with you when you visit.
If you’re already registered at another Preferred Enrollment center location and you enroll your child at a new Bright Horizons center location, the registration fee credit is applied when you enter your second full month of enrollment.
For more information or to find a center location, please visit the Bright Horizons website or call 1 877 242 2737.
Tuition discount at affiliated child care centers
The tuition discount benefit may provide you with a discount of up to 10% off child care tuition and a waived registration fee at select participating centers. Discounts vary by center and may only be available for children ages 2 and older. Check with your preferred center for details.
If you’re currently enrolled in a participating center that offers a tuition discount, reach out to your center director to inquire about the discount benefit. You’ll then be eligible to receive up to 10% off your tuition moving forward.
How to find a child care center
Visit your Bright Horizons website and select Care Programs For Your Family. Select Details in the Secure Full-Time Care in a Quality Child Care Center box.
This will bring you to the Preferred Enrollment and Discounts for Child Care site, where you will be able to use the center search locator to find center options in your desired area. Check to see if your child's center is on the list!
If you have a child with special needs, note that Bright Horizons makes every effort to accommodate all care recipients, including those with physical, emotional, or developmental challenges.
