New Bright Space® Opens in Aurora, IL

December 10, 2019

We are honored to announce the opening of a new Bright Space in Aurora, IL, for the Aurora Police Department. The APD often has to interview children after traumatic events like domestic battery or community violence, and wanted a comfortable, welcoming, child-friendly environment to interview vulnerable children and families. The new Bright Space feels more like a living room with child-sized furniture, soothing décor, and items to play with like Play-Doh.

The team at Bright Horizons at Naperville took the lead on the project, and raised funds to supplement a grant from the Bright Horizons Foundation for Children. Special thanks to Lynn Fichtel for her commitment and leadership on this project.
