Bright Horizons at Philadelphia Cathedral
Welcome to Our Center
Welcome! We believe that play-based learning and engaging activities are the best way to instill a love of learning in every child. Little bookworms can curl up with a good book and foster a love of reading in the Growing Readers nook. Our Science Rocks curriculum encourages your child to experiment and observe, the ArtSmart program fosters creativity through music, dance, and art. Plus, our rooftop playground provides plenty of space for socialization and unstructured downtime, and our Well Aware program instills healthy habits through kid-friendly exercises and daily routines.
