  • Toddler Program!

    18-24 months

    We are excited to share that we will soon be accepting children ages 18-24 months for our new Toddler Program! Toddlers are inquisitive by nature. Striving for independence and insatiably curious, toddlers are natural learners, eager for new skills, and on the cusp of major steps forward in their language, physical, social, and cognitive development.

    We recognize the importance of these early years and our Growing World of Toddlers program is designed to support those big steps. With warm, nurturing teachers by their side, and our own The World at Their Fingertips curriculum as a guide, we offer your child the opportunity to reach his or her greatest potential in all areas.

    Call us today at 312-867-7100 to schedule a visit!

    Bright Horizons’ The World at Their Fingertips

Built around extensive research, 21st-century technology, and developmentally appropriate instruction, our curriculum introduces concepts of math, science, language, culture, environment, art and health.

    Because parents need peace of mind

    Well Aware and Staying Healthy

    Our center environment offers children a healthy and safe place to develop and learn. Through our Well Aware program and our Staying Healthy procedures, we set high expectations for creating healthy environments and also foster positive attitudes within children towards healthy living, physical activity, and nutrition.

    We’re proud to provide programs parents can feel good about, and to be recognized as a model for other early education programs by the Partnership for a Healthier America and First Lady Michelle Obama’s Let’s Move campaign.
