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.

"Bright Horizons has created a wonderful environment for our children to grow and thrive. I am grateful knowing that my son is developing in a safe, healthy, and happy place surrounded by an outstanding staff. Your positive attitude and ability to connect with the kids makes every day better."

Learning at Home

Job Responsibilities

You Will Need:

Photos of different chores or a camera

Directions:

Take pictures of chores or jobs you want your child to accomplish around the house and make a chart for her to follow. Start with something like “Throw away food when you’re done with dinner” – have your child take or draw a picture of dinner and a picture of the trash can. Then, make a chart with your child. Write a sentence and attach pictures for each job. In this case, the sentence might be “When you are done with _______ (photo of dinner), then __________ (photo of trash can).” Repeat with additional jobs.

Tip:

This ongoing activity will give children a sense of responsibility and accomplishment. You can also reward your child when she completes tasks.
