Bright Horizons offers childcare services for eligible employees with children between 0-12 years of age. Employees who apply and are verified will be allowed up to 10 uses for the duration of the program, and are responsible for the co-payments associated with care. *

Uses are calculated as follows:

  • Center Care: 1 use per child attending a designated BH Center during normal operations.
  • In Home: 1 use for a care giver to come to your home to care for up to 3 children* for up to 10hours of care. After 10 hours, an additional use will be added even if it is not for the full 10 hours.

Co-payments for center and in-home care:

  • Center Care: Employees will pay a $20.00 co-pay/per day for the first child. A $35.00 co-pay will be applied to two or more children attending the same center.
  • In Home: For in-home care, the cost would be $8/hour for up to three children.
Co-payments are payable by credit card, debit card or electronic funds transfer (EFT). You will need to provide payment information to place a reservation request and credit/debit card will be pre-authorized, as applicable. Charges will be processed on the day of scheduled services. For more information about the billing process related to co-pays and cancellations, please see the Bright Horizons FAQ link below.

* This program is available on a first come, first serve basis and is subject to change based on program availability.
