Child & Family care

Family and education support

When you have work, family, and personal responsibilities competing for your time, there’s no need to stress. Bright Horizons offers family and education benefits to help support you and your family. Explore all your benefits below and start making your life easier.

Back-up child care

Next time school’s closed, the sitter’s on vacation, or you’re between child care arrangements, high-quality back-up care is just a click or call away. Register for free, and we’ll secure reliable care for you when and where you need it, up to 15 days each year. The copay for center-based care is $15 per child/$25 per family and in-home care is $6 an hour.

Back-up adult and elder care

When Mom gets injured, Dad’s recovering from surgery, or the regular caregiver calls out sick, we’ll arrange high-quality back-up care in their home. 

Return-to-work care

Going back to work post-leave can be overwhelming, but you have extra back-up care to use in your child's first year. Visit the benefits section on the back-up care site to learn more.

Additional family support

Do you need a night out of the house? Are you looking for an afterschool caregiver or someone to watch your pet while you’re away on vacation? Get free membership to a comprehensive database, where you can find support that meets your needs—nannies, sitters, elder caregivers, pet sitters, housekeepers, and more.

Full-time child care

You can jump ahead on the waitlist at select Bright Horizons centers, or enjoy exclusive discounts at participating partner centers that make care more affordable.

Tutoring and test prep

Get discounted tutoring resources for SATs/ACTs, standardized tests, Common Core subjects, and general help for your student. Tutors are available to meet your child’s educational needs, including homework help or scheduled one-on-one sessions with more than 300 subjects. 

Adults also have access to tutoring classes, college entrance exams, professional certification, and more through virtual tutoring.
