The Daybridge Child Development Center provides care to Penn State students, faculty and staff, as well as those who work at Innovation Park, and community members.  Daybridge is a Keystone Star 4 center, NAEYC accredited, and an active member of the PreK Counts initiative.  

 Bright Horizons offers a unique early education experience built on more than 30 years of expertise, and on what working families want and need for their children…and for themselves.  Their research-based World at Their Fingertips® curriculum meets children where they are developmentally, with an emergent approach that enables teachers to take each child’s interests and develop activities and projects that spark curiosity, create excitement, and build on individual talents and skills.
