Bright Horizons partners Parental Choice

Childcare services provider, Bright Horizons, has partnered Parental Choice to expand its Family Essentials programme.

Parental Choice, which was launched in 2009, advises parents and employers on how to work together to combine a career with childcare. The partnership will expand Bright Horizon’s online portal through which employees can access family support services.

Paul Quartly, business development manager at Bright Horizons, said: “Parental Choice is a one-stop shop for all parents, offering a raft of services.

“That combined with our 203-strong portfolio of nurseries and preschools present an attractive proposition for parents both on and offline.”

Sarah-Jane Butler, director at Parental Choice, added: “Our goal is to enable parents to have the right information at their fingertips to make the right decisions for their family and their careers.

“Providing general advice on the options available to families, as well as tailored wrap-around childcare, it is a flexible programme for employers and employees alike, essential to the changing needs of families and businesses today.”

Bright Horizons is to exhibit at Employee Benefits Live on the 25 and 26 September.
