Bright Horizons at River East

Early Education & Preschool That's More than Daycare

Welcome to Bright Horizons at River East, where we help children engage their bodies and minds through fun, educational activities. Our unique, indoor 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 on Grand Avenue near Fairbanks Court and Columbus Drive in Chicago's Streeterville neighborhood, 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 garage. Come visit us today!
