Bright Horizons at the Shire

Welcome to Our Center

Welcome to Bright Horizons at The Shire.  Our goal is to help children discover the joys of learning while giving them the necessary tools for success.  In the comfort of our cozy center, children have daily opportunities to explore the wonders of science, learn that math is fun, and build critical language skills through the magic of books and songs. We are centrally located in Richardson between the George Bush Turnpike and the Central Expressway, steps away from the DART rail service. Our passionate teachers, many of whom have been with us for years will partner with your family as they inspire learning. There’s always something new to explore. Come visit today!
