Welcome to Bright Horizons at Poughkeepsie

A great place to learn, discover and grow!

The Bright Horizons Child Development Center at Poughkeepsie is a custom designed center created to fully meet the needs of the children and to maximize safety and teacher supervision. The teacher child ratio meets widely recognized national standards of quality as defined by the National Association for the Education of Young Children and New York State licensing agencies.  While almost everything we do helps prepare children for success in school in some way,certain materials and activities are more directly focused in this area. Ready for School materials include our Handwriting without Tears and Math Our Way. Our center is located off of the main road in a garden like setting surrounded by nature. This offers plenty of opportunities for nature walks, science experiments, gardening, sports, and animal watching.   Each classroom has  large windows and security doors that leads out to the age specific playgrounds and a view of our natural surroundings......
