Bright Horizons at Inova Mount Vernon

Welcome to Our Center

Welcome!  At Bright Horizons at Inova Mt. Vernon, we are much more than child care!  Our dedicated tenured teaching team is here to help your child discover his or her passions and encourage a love of learning.  Our small center has strong family feel where every child’s growth and accomplishments are celebrated!  Our age specific playgrounds keep children active and promote social growth.  Activities and materials are designed by the teachers to meet your child’s specific interests and needs in language, love of reading, inquiry and exploration as well as physical growth.  Located within the Inova Mt. Vernon hospital, we offer extended hours to meet your needs.  Please visit us to see how your child will thrive!

Our Community

While many of our families are part of the Bright Horizons at Inova Mt. Vernon Hospital community, we also welcome community families who live or work in Alexandria.  Our center is ideal for busy working families and easy to get to—for pick-up and drop-off.


Our Graduates

Children graduate Bright Horizons programs with the skills they need to succeed in private or public school. In surveys, kindergarten and first grade teachers report that Bright Horizons graduates are enthusiastic learners who are socially and academically ready for the years ahead.
