Our Montessori Approach
Curriculum at Bright Horizons’ Montessori Schools
We provide your child with an education that lasts a lifetime by following Dr. Maria Montessori's groundbreaking methods and incorporating the most current thinking from today’s strongest Montessori practitioners in the field.
Helping children reach their potential
Bright Horizons Montessori-trained educators strive to provide the highest-quality curriculum and learning environment for each individual child. Every member of our community is valued for their distinctive abilities, talents and personalities. We embrace diversity at all levels of the Bright Horizons family.
To facilitate this unique educational experience, teachers of the Montessori approach undergo very specific education and training. They prepare and adapt the environment to match children's readiness, both for the age group and the individual needs of the child. Additionally, they are keen observers of children in order to sequence and optimize lessons to make the most of learning moments.
Because parents need peace of mind
Our schools adhere to the highest health and safety practices in the industry with systems and procedures that ensure our environments are safe places where children can grow, explore and learn. This provides an optimal opportunity for children to engage in emerging physical, sensorial, perceptual, cognitive, and social skills at every age.
Additionally, a key component of a Montessori education includes exercises where children learn care and respect for themselves and their environments, as well as how to contribute to society. Healthy living, physical activity and quality nutrition are incorporated into everyday practice to help develop well rounded, healthy children.
