Welcome to Bright Horizons World at Home

We are happy to stay connected and support your child’s learning while you are safely at home, with guided learning opportunities that follow a typical classroom daily schedule. Children thrive with routine, especially when there is big change around them. We invite you to explore our library of enriching activities from Bright Horizons educators to enhance your child’s learning and engagement.

When You Just Have to Roar by Rachel Robertson

Books and stories invite us into worlds we can only imagine. But they also increase our understanding of expectations in our own world. Talk to your child about what kind of expectations you have at home – around bedtime, dinner, or screen time. Ask about what they mean, how they’ve changed, and what to do when the expectation is for quiet – but you just want to roar!
