Welcome to Bright Horizons at Boxborough

A great place to learn, discover and grow!

Welcome to Bright Horizons at Boxborough! At our center we strive to provide innovative, carefully crafted programs with the goal of encouraging curious, happy, and confident children. Offering full-time, part-time and back-up scheduling options, we serve families from Boxborough, Acton, Stowe, Harvard, Littleton and surrounding communities.  

Our convenient location, just minutes off of 495 (exit 26), is complimented by 3 large outdoor learning environments, garden, enriched classrooms, inviting infant nursery rooms, a parent and children's library, and a Movement Matters Zone.  

Our experienced educators understand the balance between nurturing developing minds and caring for tender spirits. Partnering with parents is the bedrock of our center community and we encourage family participation in every facet of center life.
