Early Education & Preschool That's More than Daycare

Welcome to Bright Horizons at Lakeshore East!  Nestled in the Near East Side Community's The Tides residential building, we love to take full advantage of our urban neighborhood -  whether we’re exercising on the Lakeshore East playground or expanding our minds by venturing out of the neighborhood on a walking field trip to Millennium Park. We are pleased to provide an array of enrichments, which include gardening, cooking, second language learning, STEM, fitness, and the arts. Our teachers offer our 2 to 5-year-old students the very best in learning for school-readiness, with a well rounded emergent curriculum that inspires children to become readers, scientists, mathematicians, and artists. Come visit our school to learn more!
