Getting Ready

We know that children thrive with routine, especially when there are big changes around them. World at Home lesson plans have been designed to bring the comforting rhythms of our Bright Horizons® child care centers right into your home, with guided learning opportunities that follow a similar schedule to that of our classrooms. We know there is a lot here to digest. Our intent is for you to use what works for you. Think about all the things you need to accomplish while you are at home, and add in as much activity as you feel supports your child’s needs and your own. Change the schedule to meet your needs, choose activities you think your child will love and skip the others, or follow this plan as it is. Our goal is to support your child’s learning, even while you are safely at home.

Home Week

The familiarity and comfort of a home provides the perfect backdrop for learning; giving children a sense of relevance and personal connection in which to connect key concepts. This week’s topic of Home enhances children’s social and emotional development, as well as language and physical development, and other brain-building skills. From poetry about home to learning about animal homes, to getting creative and building our own; this week is full of engaging activities as children learn about home.
