Welcome Message

A child care and preschool where children can learn, discover and grow.


Our beautiful state of the art facility was built in 1998. Bright Horizons became a Yale University child care center in January 2008. We have the capacity for children ages six weeks to 12 years old. In each home base, from infant to school age, our teachers provide the environment and experiences from which children can learn.

At Bright Horizons, we recognize how important new beginnings are in each child's development and to each family. Our mission is to provide a caring and nurturing environment in which a child can learn and develop.

Bright Horizons at Yale West Campus is conveniently located off Interstate 95 in Orange, Connecticut near New Haven, Milford, and West Haven.

While we welcome families at Yale, our doors are also open to all families in the community. We offer full time and part time care as well as drop-in and back up care programs.

What Parents are Saying
