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

Concentration - Memory Game

You Will Need:

Cards showing different numbers, colors etc. (each card needs a matching card that’s exactly the same)

Directions:

With your child, take 10 pairs of numbered cards (20 cards) and lay them out in rows, with the numbers facing down. Take turns turning over two cards to see if they are a pair. If one person selects a pair, he goes again.

Tip:

Add more cards to increase the challenge. With very young children, try playing with 6 cards. This can be a fun restaurant activity.
