  • What Watertown Parents are Saying

    about Bright Horizons Child Care

    "Dora, thank you so much for all you do for Abigail and toddler 4. We were nervous last July about Abigail starting at a new center, but you instantly put us at ease. You and the rest of the toddler 4,5 and 1 instructors are truly gifts to us parents."

  • Science Rocks!

    How do we incorporate science?

    Science Rocks entails observing, making inferences, testing hypotheses, classifying, and integrating and communicating insight. Children are natural scientists, impelled to dive into the primordial muck with all their powers and make sense of it - to taste and twist and rub and hurl the elements against each other and themselves.
