This study shows that Bright Horizons graduates are well prepared for the academic, social, and behavioral expectations of the first year of elementary school. Parents and teachers agree that Bright Horizons is successfully preparing children for school both socially and academically while fostering a strong enthusiasm for learning.
Furthermore, teachers and parents strongly agree that Bright Horizons graduates enter elementary school ready to adapt, learn new rules, accept new responsibilities, and work independently.
Bright Horizons will continue to measure and evaluate our graduates on school readiness to ensure that we consistently provide the very best education for children.
