Early Education & Preschool That's More than Daycare

Welcome to Bright Horizons at Encinitas! We’ve been serving families of the community for more than 20 years, and our talented teachers engage in intentional learning activities to foster your child’s growth and development. We offer lots of hands-on opportunities in STEM and science, and experimentation with instruments during music class. Our beautiful campus has outdoor learning areas for each classroom where children can socialize, channel creativity with art projects, and discover how to grow and harvest plants in our garden. No matter what, your child will have a safe space to explore and learn! Come visit us! We are conveniently located down the street from Home Depot, Target, and the Forum Shops.
