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.

Habitat Week

Every living thing has a place it calls home! This week’s activities give children the opportunity to learn how plants, animals, and people live and grow in environments that are just right for them. Let’s learn about habitats!
