Our Educational Programs
“Early childhood classrooms are special places; within them discoveries abound, imaginations soar, and anything is possible.”
Rachel Robertson – VP, Learning & Development at Bright Horizons
At Bright Horizons, we know childhood is a treasured time. We believe it is our responsibility to provide environments and experiences that capture the joys of childhood, nurture each child’s individual growth and development, and pave the way for success in school and life.
Classrooms that Inspire Learning
At Bright Horizons we believe that environment is the key to creating a joyful place for childhood; and we put a great deal of thought and care into creating those joyful places. In keeping with Reggio Emilia and Montessori philosophies, our designs consider not only what children need in a space, but how they will use it. We know our centers will form an integral part of a child’s earliest learning; and with that in mind, we carefully curate high-quality materials for every center to create beautiful environments with rich, open-ended experiences that nurture development and inspire learning.
Infants: A Great Place for Babies
Babies enjoy classrooms made for exploring with teachers who support both today’s big milestones and tomorrow’s leaps toward the future.
Toddlers/Twos: Growing World of Toddlers
Toddlers are curious about everything and becoming increasingly independent. Our teachers embrace that as they support the growth of important skills they need for the future.
Ready for School
Preschoolers are ready to take chances and experiment with new things. With teachers’ support, these inquisitive young minds will tackle new challenges, and advance the skills they’ll need for kindergarten and beyond.
With school on the horizon, pre-kindergartners are inspired to think critically, explore new ideas, and build on the STEM, language, art, and social skills they’ll need to succeed.
