At Bright Horizons Family Centers, we recognize young children learn best through active interaction, physically & socially. Because the first three years are critical for brain and language development, our program for learning is focused on experientially-rich, developmentally-appropriate environments that respond to the creativity of children and teachers. Learning centers, embedded into our curriculum, result in experiences that encompass all the skills necessary for optimum development and success in school. Bright Horizons is proud to offer Bright Horizons University to all their teachers. BHU is a CEU credit-granting university that includes online and offline interactive courses, reinforcing our commitment to ongoing training and development for our teachers. (less)... Read more
