Duke Children's Campus, managed by Bright Horizons

Welcome to Our Center

Welcome! We are dedicated to encouraging your child’s natural love of learning through enriching activities and educational play. The STEM Lab is the perfect place for little hands to experiment and observe, and our reading nook fosters literacy skills with a cozy place to read. The age-specific outdoor learning areas and garden instill an interest in nature and the environment, and our expansive  playgrounds have plenty of room for unstructured playtime and socialization. Plus, the outdoor spray pad is a fun area to cool off in during the summer months. Stop in for a tour and we'll show you around.
