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. "

Stamp Collecting

You Will Need:

Scissors, a book, pen, and stamps

Directions:

When the mail arrives, have your child cut the stamps off the letters. Look at the stamps carefully and discuss what’s on them. You can do this together each day for a week, or off and on until you collect enough stamps. Working together, glue the stamps in a scrapbook. Let your child decide how to organize the book. Talk about how much each stamp cost, where they are from, if she has two (or more) that are the same, etc. Your child might want to look up the places the stamps came from on the Internet.

Tip:

An exciting family hobby may emerge from this activity.
