  • About the Curriculum

    Our unique approach to education

    Bright Horizons’ The World at Their Fingertips®

    We believe that children experience learning through play. Based on this belief, we provide a wide variety of activities in all the curriculum areas - math, science, language, culture, environment, art, and health - where children can experience “hands on” learning. Our goal is to ensure that your child’s day in back-up care is a rich and meaningful experience.
