Bright Horizons at River East

Welcome to Our Center

Welcome to Bright Horizons at River East, where we help children engage their bodies and minds through fun, educational activities. Our movement zone encourages physical activity and gross motor skill development; our STEM lab promotes future-forward skills; and our reading station and library help children explore different cultures through a variety of books. Nestled between Michigan Avenue and Lake Shore Drive, our center works for busy, urban families just like yours. And we also offer convenient drop-off and pick-up times and easy, free parking in the adjacent AMC parking lot. Come visit us today!
