Welcome to Bright Horizons at UM Canterbury Preschool

A great place to learn, discover and grow!

Our center offers quality child care and early education through our Infant, Toddler, Preschool and Pre-Kindergarten programs. Our comprehensive curriculum, low teacher-to-child ratios and small group sizes, active parent involvement, and experienced professional staff provides children and families an exceptional learning experience.

Strong parent partnerships are at the core of what we do. We encourage dialogue with you about your child through daily communication, documentation of learning, parent partnership group, family events, parent conferences, and on-line child assessments and portfolios.

We know that choosing an early education center for your child is a difficult decision. We'd love for you to come in and visit us!
