    We invite you to write your own message of thanks or share how a Bright Horizons teacher or staff member has inspired you. The website will be open from May 1-31.

  • School's Out. Camp is In.

    All summer long

    Summer camp at Little Friends offers indoor and outdoor activities that take advantage of all that summer offers.  Children discover science, explore nature, and engage in the creative arts, while learning about the vast opportunities in the world around them.

    Our park-like playground, indoor Movement Matters Zone, Art Studio, and Media Center, plus our surrounding community, and special visitors all add up to a great summer experience for kids!

  • Health & Safety

    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.
