Early Education & Preschool That's More than Daycare

Welcome to Bright Horizons at West 96th! We are a connected community of passionate educators, engaged parents and budding lifelong learners. We value active learning: we do this by exploring Central Park and our Movement Matters Zone that includes a rock wall, yoga zone and STEM corner; Community Outreach: collecting donations for the Regent Family Home and the Samaritan Village for Young Mothers; Parent Partnership: facilitating a broad range of parent workshops that support your family's journey from potty learning to Kindergarten admissions. Located on the Upper West Side, we look forward to growing with you and your family!
