Smith, Gambrell & Russell and Kilpatrick Stockton, two of the nation’s leading law firms, announced today that they have opened a new state-of-the-art childcare center for the children of their employees. The facility, Bright Beginnings, is conveniently located within a few blocks of each firm’s office in midtown Atlanta.
Recognizing the challenges faced by working parents, Smith, Gambrell & Russell and Kilpatrick Stockton engaged Bright Horizons Family Solutions — the world’s leading provider of employer-sponsored quality childcare — to develop and operate Bright Beginnings. Both firms have made the new childcare center available to their employees at a significant discount from prevailing market rates for comparable care.
“We are extremely proud of this outstanding facility,” said Bill Brewster, Managing Partner of Kilpatrick Stockton. “Bright Beginnings will provide exceptional and convenient childcare at considerable savings. The center is a focal point of Kilpatrick Stockton’s ongoing commitment of providing our dedicated employees with a family-friendly workplace.”
“SGR constantly strives to promote the well-being of our valued personnel,” says Stephen Forte, Managing Partner of Smith, Gambrell & Russell. “We know how important it is for working parents to have dependable and high-quality childcare, and the new childcare center is a wonderful addition to the work-life balance solutions we provide our employees.”
The 8,250 square foot center is a bright, dynamic center with a capacity for 120 children with age ranges from infants to pre-kindergarten. Additional space accommodates approximately 24 school-age children during summer breaks and school holidays.
Bright Beginnings will celebrate an official grand opening later this Fall.
