Early Education & Preschool That's More than Daycare

Welcome! At Bright Horizons at American Center, we’re all about making early learning a fun, educational experience. And we’re here to help your child explore the world and get ready for the exciting adventure ahead. That’s why we have a library and reading nook that encourage a love for books; a movement zone that boosts active learning; a STEM lab that fosters 21st century skills; and a summer farmer’s market that inspires healthy choices. Children also tend to our indoor and outdoor gardens, which supply fruits and vegetables for our daily farm-to-table menu. Schedule a virtual visit today and see everything we have to offer!
