From the Director:
The World at Their Fingertips Program for Learning is Bright Horizonsâ€™ comprehensive early education curriculum. World is designed to prepare children for success in school and life, and encourage them to approach life as an invitation to learn. This is achieved through both an approach and a sensibility that infuses interactions and the planned environment. Individual elements such as Language Works, Math Counts, Science Rocks, Projections, Our World, ArtSmart and The World at Home are integrated into each of the developmental programs' environments and into the "sensibility of the center," rather than isolated in artificial, discrete components. Each Bright Horizons Center is encouraged to extend and enhance The World at Their Fingertips, staying within the overall approach. For example, aspects of the approach of Reggio Emilia, Montessori, or Waldorf Schools can be used to add richness to The World at Their Fingertips at a Bright Horizons Center. Centers are expected to take advantage of the world outside their center and to be part of their communities, taking advantage of local resources and culture.
