Bright Horizons at the Octagon

Early Education & Preschool That's More than Daycare

Welcome to Bright Horizons at the Octagon! We are located on Roosevelt Island. Early education is an essential part of your child's development, and our small and inviting center is the perfect place for personalized learning. In addition to our curriculum, we offer onsite enrichments including Art, Spanish and Yoga. We have a playground directly across the street for opportunites to extend the learning beyond the classroom. We develop strong parent partnerships by offering parent workshops, events including infant socials and Saturday series. Come visit our NAEYC-accredited center, meet our teachers, and see all we have to offer!

Your child’s safety and wellness is our top priority. We continue to monitor state and local public health guidelines, look to our medical expert, and use our considerable experience to guide our health and safety practices. Our centers take important steps to ensure the very best for every child, and the Health and Wellness portion of our World at Their Fingertips® curriculum incorporates lessons about these essential topics into every classroom, every day.
