Early Education & Preschool That's More than Daycare

Welcome! At Bright Horizons on the Charles, our number one goal is to help your child develop a love for learning. Our passionate team of teachers makes early education a priority — and sets the stage for a successful future. Our rock climbing wall and Movement Matters Zone encourage children to explore what their bodies can do…and our gardens and beautiful walking park introduce growth and living things while giving them a chance to explore the natural world. And we even have an Art Café, where children experiment with a variety of art mediums and try their hands at cooking.

We are located in the Arsenal on the Charles office park, approximately one mile east of Watertown Square. Schedule a (virtual) visit and follow us on Facebook and see everything we have to offer!
