Welcome to Our Center

Welcome to Bright Horizons at Memorial Hospital!  Every day, our center strives to encourage your child’s natural curiosity with engaging, developmental activities. The STEM lab offers a place to experiment and observe, the children’s library fosters a love of literacy, and our outdoor playground nurtures an interest in Mother Nature with natural shade and plenty of space to explore. Our Movement Matters Zone encourages healthy habits through kid-friendly yoga, music, and dance, and the spacious playground provides plenty of room for unstructured playtime. Come by for a tour and to meet our staff to learn more about what we offer.  We are conviently located right off of I95 with ease of access to Downtown Jacksonville and the Beaches.
