  • Introducing our Newest Enrichment

    American Sign Language

    This month, we introduced our American Sign Language Enrichment with Ms. Melissa. In our first lesson, we talked about how our hands can be used to communicate and the purpose of the language. Then, we learned how to say "yes" and "no" and explored letter tiles with the corresponding sign.  Click below to take a peek at our lesson in action.

    Enrichments are offered at Bright Horizons at Clybourn at no additional cost!  Contact us to learn more about this, as well as other curriculum enrichment programs offered at our center.

    Well Aware and Staying Healthy

    Our center environment offers children a healthy and safe place to develop and learn.
