Toddler Care at Bright Horizons

When your toddler’s in the right place, you just know. Our program is designed to give you that feeling — a safe place for your newly independent child to test out and learn new skills, wonder about everything, and discover how to make friends. It’s all alongside teachers who know every day that they’re not caring for any child, but the most important child — yours.

Individualized Care for the Whole Child

Our program is rooted in what research says is best for early learning, as children make developmental leaps and build skills for the future.

  • Learning centers that encourage language and reading, fine motor skills, math, art, dramatic play, science, and outdoor learning
  • A relaxed environment to foster individual development and self-help skills
  • Safety, security, and cleanliness practices that meet or exceed all state, local, and National Association for the Education of Young Children (NAEYC) guidelines
