Crowell & Moring Partners with Bright Horizons Family Solutions to Open Child Care Center

Washington, D.C. – June 28, 2007: Crowell & Moring LLP has partnered with Bright Horizons Family Solutions to open a state-of-the-art child care center at 1111 Pennsylvania Avenue N.W. in Washington, D.C., one block from its Washington office. The new center, called Bright Horizons at 1111 Pennsylvania Avenue, will allow working parents the opportunity to balance their work and family life while providing high-quality child care and early education for their children. Crowell & Moring is the primary sponsor of the new child care and early education center.

The center provides care for 120 full-time children ages six weeks to six years and also incorporates a back-up program for infants through school-age children. Back-up care offers families a solution when their traditional child care arrangements fall through. Priority enrollment is offered to Crowell & Moring employees, and the center is also open to families of other area companies, as well as those who live and work in the community.

“We’re always looking to improve the quality of life of our team members, and there’s no better way to do that than by investing in their families. We helped to build this center because we wanted to provide the men and women of our firm with more options to find high-quality, convenient care for their children. The center offers our people the opportunity to visit with their children on their lunch break or simply take comfort in the fact that their children are getting a top education,” said Kent A. Gardiner, Crowell & Moring chairman.

Bright Horizons offers a unique early learning curriculum for children. The World at Their Fingertips program for learning offers each child a world full of discovery opportunities guided by skilled teachers who recognize each child’s individual strengths, while helping them to learn, grow, and live fully. The World at Their Fingertips uses engaging programs, such as Language Works, Math Counts and Science Rocks, to teach children the basic language, math and science skills that will prepare them for future academic excellence. The Bright Horizons Growing Readers campaign emphasizes the importance of early literacy and provides parents with information about language development and books of excellence for their children.

 “We’ve found that graduates from our child care and early education programs really do have greater success in kindergarten and beyond, and we’re excited to be a part of their first stage of learning here at the center. All our programs are geared to ensure children have the language, math, science and social skills they need for elementary school, and we’re also able to help parents incorporate learning experiences in their children’s home life as well,” said Linda Janulis, regional manager, Bright Horiozns Family Solutions.

Bright Horizons operates each of its centers according to the highest standards of excellence as defined by the National Association for the Education of Young Children (NAEYC) and has the best record of accreditation from the NAEYC of any multi-site employer-sponsored workplace services provider in the country, a distinction of quality that fewer than eight percent of centers in the U.S. achieve.
