We live near a large Bright Horizons center, so they were able to accommodate us with a couple months’ notice. At a minimum though, you should visit a few places ~4 months out and decide which one you will go with. We didn’t have any better options nearby, and liked that the BH had longer hours (until 6:30), lots of staff, and daily updates and photos via app. It comes down to convenience and trusting the caregivers will be attentive enough to your baby.

While you are pregnant. Waitlists were ~1year, so we ended up going the nanny route just because anything else was going to be crazy inconvenient.

My husband visites options when I was pregnant, we were on the waitlist for 3 but honestly we pushed mostly for Bright Horizons because of convenience. They have several locations so you can put several options - we started w a location a bit farther and we moved to our preferred choice after 3 months

I'm a nontraditional new attorney who is three weeks in to their first firm job. Long story short I was VERY clear in my interview on my expectations for training in my first year.

I've spent two weeks sitting in my office trying to train myself. I don't think this is a good fit. How long do I need to drown here before applying for other jobs?
