The Academy at Bright Horizons

Early Education & Preschool That's More than Daycare

Welcome to our center! Every day, we provide your child with a range of opportunities and loads of encouragement to learn, grow, and succeed. Our beautiful art studio and fine-arts teacher foster creativity, while our dramatic play area is a favorite place for children to stretch their imaginations. We love to spend time outside, where children develop an appreciation for nature and the environment in our age-specific outdoor spaces and gardening areas. Plus, the Movement Matters Zone encourages healthy habits and socialization through music, dancing, yoga, and team-building activities. Stop by for a tour, and meet our incredible staff.
