The Academy at Manhattan Beach: A Bright Horizons Preschool

Welcome to Our School

Welcome to The Academy at Manhattan Beach! We are located in the tree section of sunny Manhattan Beach.  Our philosophy is a mix of Developmental and Traditional. Developmental, focuses on the more social and emotional components of play. Traditional is our more structured aspect of the day, which includes Circle Time as well as Centers. We also have My Gym incorporated into our program. My Gym is held daily for 30 minutes; it is our health and wellness component.  We execute the My Gym programming ourselves which is unique to The Academy. Tours are available Monday-Friday between 8:00 AM- 5:00 PM. It is not necessary to make an appointment, you are welcome to stop by anytime. We'd love to meet you and show you around our beautiful school!
