Our Preschool Program

Engaging children intellectually, physically, emotionally and socially

Our preschool classrooms focus on children’s newly emerging skills and advanced use of language, math, and scientific thought. Multi-disciplinary learning centers encourage individual skills and emerging interests in academics and creative expression.

Our curriculum stimulates each child’s innate curiosity and exploratory nature to prepare children for lifelong learning.

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."

Musical Drinking Glasses

You Will Need:

Glasses, water, spoons

Directions:

With your child, fill glasses with water from about 1 1/2 - 5 inches full. With the spoons, you and your child can gently tap the rims of the glasses to create music.

Tip:

Encourage your child to set up and clean up the activity with you. Explain to your child that the glasses are breakable or “fragile,” so the tapping should be gentle.
