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."

Restaurant Rescue Box

You Will Need:

A small box or bag containing special items that are only to be taken out at restaurants. Possibilities include: activity books, a calculator, rocks and a magnifying glass, small Etch A Sketch, magnets, paper clips to make a chain, special pens and a book, strings or yarn for braiding, sticker books, magic slates, etc. Do not use small objects like paper clips for children under three.

Directions:

Collect the items and rotate different activities each time you go to a restaurant. Make the items in the box special, to be used only at restaurants.

Tip:

Children will look forward to going to restaurants to see what’s in the box, which may help them sit at the table for longer periods.
