Welcome to Bright Horizons at Marin Commons

A great place to learn, grow and discover!

We opened our doors to serve children and families in September 2009. In each classroom, from Infants to Pre-K, our highly skilled teachers provide the environment and experiences from which children learn and grow. The first few years of life are an extraordinary time that sets the stage for the all the years that follow. Our program for learning, The World at Their Fingertips, creates developmentally appropriate educational environments that empower children to be confident, successful, lifelong learners.

Our READY for SCHOOL program is focused on comprehensive development of each child, preparation for success in school and life, and preparation for academic success.

Bright Horizons at Marin Commons is conveniently located off of Lucas Valley Road in San Rafael.
