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.

"Back-up care is an extremely helpful benefit. It helps so much with the multiple teacher workdays and school holidays. Bright Horizons is a great place; my son always enjoys his time there. "

Learning at Home

Home Grown Jungle

You Will Need:

Shallow pan or plate, fresh carrots, beets, or parsnips, mung seeds, small plastic animals, small stones

Directions:

With your child, cut the tops off of the carrots, beets, or parsnips, leaving about 1-2 inches at top. Eat the bottoms and place the tops on the pan or plate with a little water. Have your child sprinkle mung seeds in the water and place the pan/plate in a sunny location. Mung seeds should sprout, and the carrots and beets will grow into “trees,” creating a “jungle.” Arrange stones and plastic animals around the plants.

Tip:

Add water frequently, as the seeds and vegetables will absorb it. If the water gets cloudy, pour it out, rinse the pan and add new water. Mung sprouts are crunchy and good to eat. Talk about what kind of animals live in a real jungle.
