Our School-Age Program

Guiding children to experience their world and pursue their interests

Our school-age programs include before- and after-school care, back-up care for school holidays and school closing days, and summer day camp. We provide school-age children with the opportunity to live, learn and socialize in a relaxed setting outside of school.

We offer a wealth of enrichment activities that engage the interests of school-age children. You may find school-age children creating a magazine or a video, playing chess or shooting hoops, tutoring each other or forming a club. Teachers are there alongside, facilitating, guiding and understanding that learning does not have to take on the tone and texture of a school day but rather be filled with fun.

What Parents are Saying

Our greatest advocates are also our closest friends.

"Thank you so much for all that you do for the children, families and staff. Bright Horizons has been a second home for our three daughters, and our family, for nearly 10 years now! The teachers have contributed tremendously to our daughters' growth and development, and the feeling of leaving your children with people they adore is incredibly comforting."

Learning at Home

Art in a Can

You Will Need:

An empty can with a lid (such as a coffee can, Pringles can or powdered formula can), paint, a piece of paper, scissors, and a round ball or object (golf ball, marble, or small wiffle ball)

Directions:

Clean out the can and then have your child cut the paper to fit inside. Have him put the paper in the can and push it against the can’s inner walls. Ask him to drop some paint into the bottom of the can, or roll the ball in paint and drop it into the can. Put the lid on and seal it with tape. Have him roll, drop, and shake the can. Then, open the can, carefully remove the paper, and show him the designs the ball created!

Tip:

This can be done with children of all ages. With infants, lay them on the floor in front of the can and let them push it, prop them up in a boppy pillow and let them kick it with their feet, or let older infants roll and drop it off of a low table. Talk to your child about what the can is doing. Say things like, "Look! You rolled it across the floor" or "Did you hear the noise it made when it fell on the floor?" Let your child explore the can by experimenting with the different sounds made by tapping the bottom and the top, trying to pull the tape off, and of course, for infants, trying to chew on the lid or bottom! When you take the paper out of the can, talk to your child about his creation. This is a really fun project with little mess!
