Bright Horizons at Old Town Alexandria

Welcome to Our Center

Welcome to Bright Horizons at Old Town Alexandria! Our dedicated staff takes pride in helping your child develop a lifelong love of learning through interactive play and educational activities. The Growing Readers space offers a cozy place to curl up with a good book, and each outdoor classroom provides a place to explore Mother Nature and the environment. The Smartboard in the kindergarten-prep classroom fosters an interest in computer science, and our age-specific Movement Matters Zone encourages healthy habits with team-based exercises, kid-friendly yoga, dance, and more.
