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

Progressive Story Writing

You Will Need:

Blank book or notebook, sturdy mailing envelope, markers, pens, etc.

Directions:

Have your child start a story and illustrate a few pages. Mail the book to a family member or friend that doesn’t live with you (great for grandparents!) and ask this person to continue the story. Have him/her send the book back to your child, and then decide together who to send it to next. This can continue as long as there are pages left to fill!

Tip:

Make your child part of the whole process. She can pick out the blank book, plan what the story will be about, illustrate it (either glue pictures or draw directly in the book), and decide who to send it to. When the book is full, put pictures of the authors and illustrators in the back with the date of publication. If your child can’t write, she can dictate the story to you.
