Bright Horizons at Garner

Welcome to Our Center

Welcome to Bright Horizons at Garner! Your child will have a safe place to grow and develop at our center – our dynamic curriculum takes into account how each child learns and our programs adapt to meet their individual needs. We provide age-specific movement spaces to keep children active and yoga classes to hone gross motor skills; music exploration classes with a dedicated teacher where children can learn rhythms and experiment with instruments; outdoor garden boxes to explore science activities and discover how plants grow; and a special instructor to help build second language skills. We'd love for you to come and visit us!
