Welcome to Bright Horizons at Rhode Island Hospital!

A great place to learn, discover and grow!

Welcome to our family center at Rhode Island Hospital! Our quality NAEYC accredited program has been providing a nurturing and educational environment for children ages 6 weeks to 5 years since 1991. Many of our families work in the Lifespan community and neighboring towns such as Providence, Cranston, Johnston, Barrington and Seekonk Massachusetts.
It is comforting to our parents to know they are so close to their children, and can visit at any time. Our curriculum, "World At Their Fingertips" supports young active learners in their quest for finding out about, and interacting with their world. Our teachers help facilitate their learning through activities and experiences that are developmentally appropriate and of interest to the children. They are given resources and guidance to encourage their development in all areas.

What Parents are Saying

Our greatest advocates are also our closest friends.

"Dear Ms. Heather: Me and my husband are so thankful to have you as Zoya's teacher. She absolutely adores you. It amazes us to see all the rich vocabulary Zoya learns from you in class. She surprises us almost daily with the etiquette/good habits and sweetest gestures that you teach her. We love you!"
