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 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

Job Responsibilities

You Will Need:

Photos of different chores or a camera

Directions:

Take pictures of chores or jobs you want your child to accomplish around the house and make a chart for her to follow. Start with something like “Throw away food when you’re done with dinner” – have your child take or draw a picture of dinner and a picture of the trash can. Then, make a chart with your child. Write a sentence and attach pictures for each job. In this case, the sentence might be “When you are done with _______ (photo of dinner), then __________ (photo of trash can).” Repeat with additional jobs.

Tip:

This ongoing activity will give children a sense of responsibility and accomplishment. You can also reward your child when she completes tasks.
