Our School-Age Program

Guiding children to experience their world and pursue their interests

We provide school-age child care for school holidays, school closing days, summer day camp or when there is a need for back-up or emergency care. In our school-age program, we provide children with the opportunity to live, learn and socialize in a relaxed setting outside of school.

We offer a wealth of enrichment activities that engage the interests of school-age children. You may find school-age children creating a magazine or a video, playing chess or shooting hoops, tutoring each other or forming a club. Teachers are there alongside, facilitating, guiding and understanding that learning does not have to take on the tone and texture of a school day but rather be filled with fun.

What Parents are Saying

Our greatest advocates are also our closest friends.

"Thank you so much for taking care of our baby boy. Bright Horizons welcomed him into their classroom with open arms, and ever since, he has flourished mentally and physically. He always smiles when he sees you at drop off and we can tell he is happy. It brings so much peace of mind knowing our son loves going to school."

Learning at Home

Birthday Tree

You Will Need:

Small tree in pot or burlap, shovel, measuring tape, journal or notebook, camera

Directions:

On your child’s birthday, plant a tree. Create a “My Tree” journal. Measure how tall your child and the tree are. Write the measurements and date in the journal. Take a picture of your child beside the tree. Add this to the journal. Repeat this each year on your child’s birthday.

Tip:

You can show your child two or three types of trees that grow quickly, like Willows, Sycamores, or Tulip Poplar trees, but let her make the final choice, if possible. Research varieties at www.treelink.org or ask your local nursery for suggestions and planting instructions. Give your child a watering can, along with the responsibility of watering the tree whenever it needs it.  Before planting the tree, point out its root system when you loosen the burlap or take it out of the pot. Once you dig the hole, talk about any fertilizer (food) or compost that you add. Give your child a watering can, along with the responsibility of watering the tree whenever it needs it. Let her decorate the front of the journal. She can draw pictures of the tree throughout the year, especially showing its changes through the seasons. Press leaves to add.
