Bright Horizons at Back Bay

Welcome to Our Center

Welcome to Bright Horizons at Back Bay! Our goal is to create an exciting, enriching, and nurturing experience for all ages. Our Growing Readers nook offers a cozy place to curl up with a good book, our SMART Board inspires a love of technology and computer science, and children explore all kinds of physical activities in our two Movement Matters zones. Our enrichments include music, art, cooking and science. We're here for your whole family with monthly parent workshops and parent partnership groups. Would you like to learn more? Stop by for a tour, and meet our incredible team of teachers.

We are conveniently located on Berkeley Street between Stuart and St. James Street in the Back Bay and diagonally across from Fire and Ice.
