Ford shuts down Watertown-based daycare centers

WATERTOWN

Employees of Ford Motor Company loved their work-sponsored day care centers run by Watertown-based Bright Horizon Family Solutions. But they'll have to find somewhere new to drop off their kids this summer because, in an effort to cut costs, Ford is closing seven of them effective June 29, the Detroit News reports.

"This was the last true benefit that enabled significant productivity by us," one Ford employee told the News. "While collar folks who work long and late -- for no overtime -- could be comforted by the fact that a high quality center was teaching and protecting our children."
