Our center is conveniently located at the Reston Plaza America, just off the Dulles Toll road on Sunset Hills Road. Traveling west on VA-267 (Dulles Toll Road) toward the Dulles Airport, you would take exit 12 (VA-602/Reston Parkway). Once through the toll, you would make a right onto Reston Parkway and bear right. Sunset Hills will be your very next signal at which you will turn right. After turning right you will proceed through one signal light. At the second signal light you will make a right turn into Plaza America. Once inside the Plaza you will want to continue to bear right as you drive around the corridor. We are located on the ground floor, near the fire hydrant of the second tower marked 11710!!

World at their Fingertips

The story behind Bright Horizons emergent curriculum

What happens when a toddler tells his teacher he loves cheetahs? Or a pre-kindergarten student asks what dinosaurs eat? At Bright Horizons®, those questions spark learning opportunities and lessons in math, reading, science, art…and more. Watch the video to see teachers and parents talk about this very unique approach toward curriculum, and how a child's very own interests become the launch pad for curiosity... and a lifetime love of learning.

Coupons

Directions:

Talk to your child about what you are planning to buy at the market and explain that you need help finding those things at the store. When you reach the aisle where an item is located, hand your child the coupon and ask her to find the item. When it’s found, ask how she knew it was the right item (“It has the picture of the fish on it,” “I matched the letters on the coupon,” “I recognized the name,” etc.).

Tip:

Keep your child in your sight at all times. Talk about classification and the areas of the store different items might be found.
