  • Bright Horizons Radio on Pandora

    Music the Whole Family Will Love!

    Music encourages rhythm, motor skills, and self-expression. It also teaches social skills, sounds, and language – important abilities that will help children make friends and face challenges when they enter school. 

    Bright Horizons Radio on Pandora® makes it easy to put music into your child’s world. Our station gives you access to family-friendly music from today’s popular artists that you can feel great about…and that everyone will enjoy.

    Looking to turn that music into learning? Strike a chord with Family Tambourine Making.

  • What Makes Us a Unique Place to Learn?

    Our great spaces for learning and play!

    As a NAEYC-accredited center, Bright Horizons at Waltham is dedicated to your child’s success. 

    Our teachers (many who’ve proudly been with us for years!) delight in your child’s achievements, cheering milestones in our classrooms, Art Studio, Movement Matters Zone, and more.

    Plus, our three, age-appropriate outdoor playgrounds are all designed to foster children’s love of open-air learning, and to extend your child’s educational opportunities outside of the classroom.

    Take a tour of all of our great indoor and outdoor learning environments.
