Earlier this year, we developed a campaign called 'This Is Childhood', and we're excited to be able to share it with you all! 💛

Working with the amazing team at Life Story, we wanted to showcase the dedication, commitment, and impact of our incredible early childhood practitioners. All the images and footage within this campaign feature real families and real teams in their own setting, capturing some of the everyday wonderful moments that our Bright Horizons families experience.

We hope you enjoy the video... This is Childhood!

Today is the day! It's day! Today is centered around showing our love for the Bright Horizons Foundation for Children - Europe and the incredible Bright Spaces it creates. Here, our CEO Stephen Kramer explains a little more about in more detail...

🌟 What are Bright Spaces?

Bright Spaces are warm, safe, enriching play environments for vulnerable children affected by abuse, domestic violence, parental imprisonment and ill health.

🌟 How can YOU get involved?

Joining us is simple. All you need to do is post a photo of you, your colleagues, friends, or family making a heart-shaped symbol, and share it on your social media profiles using the hashtag - today!

Or, you can support us by donating: https://lnkd.in/e5YrGJ75

Together, let's raise awareness of Bright Horizons Foundation for Children, and make a difference in the lives of children and families in the communities where we live and work.

On Thursday, June 15th, Bright Horizons will be celebrating . We aim to flood social media with images of heart gestures, as symbols of our love for a Bright Space! 💛

We hope the celebrations will bring much-needed awareness for Bright Horizons Foundation for Children - Europe, as well as raise money for our Bright Spaces.

It is with deep sadness that we learn of the death of Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth II.

On behalf of Bright Horizons UK, we send our heartfelt condolences to the Royal Family. Her Majesty served the United Kingdom and the Commonwealth with distinction for over 70 years and has been an inspiration for many around the world. We are grateful for her decades of public service.

The loss of a loved one is a difficult time for every family. Our thoughts are with the Royal Family at this time.
