Bright Horizons at UPMC Passavant

Welcome to Our Center

Welcome to Bright Horizons at UPMC Passavant! Our talented and caring staff are ready to take your child on this important phase in their early education journey. Our curriculum features many elements that use a play based and emergent approach that builds on the children’s interests. We use open ended experiences to spark curiosity and creativity by including materials such as loose parts and natural objects in our classrooms. And our large Movement Matters Zone and fenced in green space promote open-ended play to strengthen children’s large motor skills. Schedule a virtual visit to see what we are all about!  We are located on the UPMC campus, just off BYP 19, close to Babcock Blvd., McCandless Crossing, and LaRoche University.
