Bright Horizons at The Esplanade

Early Education & Preschool That's More than Daycare

Welcome to Bright Horizons at the Esplanade! Our dynamic curriculum focuses on hands-on activities to engage children’s growing minds, and small class sizes allow our teachers to provide individualized care. Your child can take cooking classes that promote healthy choices while also learning math and science concepts; they can stay active and social on our age-specific playgrounds or during our dedicated gym classes; and they can spark a love of reading by borrowing a book from our lending library. We’re conveniently located off Butterfield Road in Downers Grove, just minutes away from I-355 and I-88 in the Esplanade Office Park. Come visit us today!
