    The Growing World of Toddlers

    A place for growing curious, happy and confident toddlers

    Our Growing World of Toddlers program uses hands-on exploration and social interaction to help your child learn about the world in a safe and engaging environment.

  • Our Kindergarten Prep Program

    Kindergarten Prep

    Ensuring children are prepared to succeed in school and life.

Our whole-child approach ensures that children are exposed to a diverse array of learning activities and that they thrive in all areas of development, becoming creative thinkers, complex problem solvers, empathetic collaborators, curious investigators, and astute decision makers.

  • Our Kindergarten Program

    Kindergarten

    Comprehensive curriculum preparing children for school success

    Our kindergarten program recognizes that children will soon be entering schools that have a range of expectations for a child's social and academic performance.

  • Our School-Age Program

    School Age

    Guiding children to experience their world and pursue their interests

    Our school-age program recognizes the growing physical, intellectual, and social competence of older children. Eager to explore the social world and discover how the adult world works, school-age children thrive on challenges, friendships, clubs, and responsibility. They want to make things, build things, act out new dramatic possibilities, explore computers and books, construct imaginary worlds and most important, not be treated like "little kids." Read More

What Parents are Saying

Our greatest advocates are also our closest friends.

"Miss Cecilia always takes the time to talk to me, answer questions, and give updates. She makes us feel important. I never feel as if I am a pain in the neck or that I am taking too much time. And I can tell she really cares about Nate. I love how welcome I am in her classroom."

World at their Fingertips

The building blocks to a balanced education.

"When I go into one of our centers, I can immediately tell that learning is happening. You see children in small groups engaged in activities that have been thoughtfully prepared."

- Dave Lissy, Bright Horizons CEO
