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

"Thank you so much for all that you do for the children, families and staff. Bright Horizons has been a second home for our three daughters, and our family, for nearly 10 years now! The teachers have contributed tremendously to our daughters' growth and development, and the feeling of leaving your children with people they adore is incredibly comforting."

Learning at Home

Creating Science Collections

You Will Need:

An outdoor space, empty shoe boxes, tennis ball cans, other empty containers

Directions:

Talk about collecting things with your child and ask what type of collection she would like to start. If she likes rocks, go to an area where there are many rocks, like a park or the beach, and start collecting. Have her put each object into a container to add to her new collection. Display the collections in your home.

Tip:

Ask thought provoking questions like, “Where do you think that rock came from?” and “How are these rocks alike?” Displaying the collection artfully will show your child that you value the collection. Also, consider using the internet to find pictures and research topics, like finding more information about rocks, for example.
