    Ensuring children are prepared to succeed in school and life.

  • Our School-Age Program

    School Age

    Guiding children to experience their world and pursue their interests

    Our school-age program recognizes the growing physical, intellectual, and social competence of older children. Eager to explore the social world and discover how the adult world works, school-age children thrive on challenges, friendships, clubs, and responsibility. They want to make things, build things, act out new dramatic possibilities, explore computers and books, construct imaginary worlds and most important, not be treated like "little kids." Read More

What Parents are Saying

Our greatest advocates are also our closest friends.

"We are so grateful for the wonderful care and education our daughter receives from all of the amazing teachers at Bright Horizons! She wakes up so excited to come to school each day and talks about all of her teachers when she comes home. Thank you for making her feel so loved."

World at their Fingertips

The story behind Bright Horizons emergent curriculum

What happens when a toddler tells his teacher he loves cheetahs? Or a pre-kindergarten student asks what dinosaurs eat? At Bright Horizons®, those questions spark learning opportunities and lessons in math, reading, science, art…and more. Watch the video to see teachers and parents talk about this very unique approach toward curriculum, and how a child's very own interests become the launch pad for curiosity... and a lifetime love of learning.

Learning at Home

Shake, Rattle, and Roll

You Will Need:

Music, plastic containers with lids (clear are preferable), small items such as corks, spools, etc. (but large enough so they’re not a choking hazard -- use a “no-choke tube” to test if you aren’t sure).

Directions:

Put the small items in the plastic containers. Play music and interact with your child by shaking, rattling and rolling the containers. Encourage your child to put the small items in the containers himself. Talk about the different sounds you hear. Introduce words such as “shake” (say, “Let’s shake the container”), “rattle” (say, “The corks are rattling inside the container”), and “roll” (say, “Let’s roll on the ground with the container”).

Tip:

Try different objects in the containers and compare different sounds. Toddlers might dance with the containers. 

What Your Child Can Learn:

  • Competence (“I can make this happen.”)
  • Cause and effect (“When I shake this, it makes a sound.”)
  • Vocabulary words such as  “shake,” “rattle,” and “roll,” 
  • How to identify the items in the containers
  • Discrimination between different sounds
  • Fun is a shared event
