Welcome to Bright Horizons at Rhode Island Hospital

A great place to learn, discover and grow!

Welcome to our family center! We have been providing a nurturing and educational environment for children ages 6 weeks to 5 years since 1991. 80% of our families work at Lifespan. 20% of our families work in the neighborhood or in downtown Providence. It is comforting to our parents to know they are so close to their children, and can visit at any time. Our curriculum, "World At Their Fingertips" supports young active learners in their quest for finding out about, and interacting with their world. Our teachers help facilitate their learning through activities and experiences that are developmentally appropriate and of interest to the children. They are given resources and guidance to encourage their development in all areas.

What Parents are Saying

"We would like to thank all the teachers who have cared for Cami for their love and and all the great things they've tought our daughter. The teachers at Bright Horizons are the best!"
