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."

Bedtime Ritual

You Will Need:

Your baby

Directions:

Create a wind-down bedtime routine: a schedule of activities that will be the same every night and will become a ritual. For example, your child gets to pick out two books that you read to her, then you hug her and her teddy bear, then you say goodnight and turn out the lights. Come up with a routine unique to your family and your child.

Tip:

The earlier you start a bedtime ritual the more effective it will become. If possible, you should go through your ritual every night. Try to create rituals that are manageable in all settings and not too elaborate.
