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.

Our Inspiration

Inspired by the world’s educational leaders to create a great place for learning and for childhood

“The goal of early childhood education should be to activate the child’s own natural desire to learn.”

MARIA MONTESSORI

“It’s not how smart you are, it’s how you are smart.”

HOWARD GARDNER

“Our task regarding creativity is to help children climb their own mountains, as high as possible.”

LORIS MALAGUZZI

“Development is not a race, it's a journey.”

JIM GREENMAN

“Play is the highest form of research.”

ALBERT EINSTEIN
