Bright Horizons at UM Canterbury Preschool

Welcome to Our Center

Welcome! Our dedicated team takes pride in supporting your child’s early education with enriching, creative activities. Your child will discover a love of literacy in our cozy reading nook — the perfect place to enjoy a good book. Our children’s library even has a check-out system that gives your family the opportunity to bring favorite stories home to read. Your child can explore Mother Nature in the garden, get a colorful look at underwater marine life, and run, play, and socialize on our playgrounds. Would you like to learn more? Come in for a tour, attend one of our parenting seminars, and meet our amazing team.
