Your Ultimate Online Resource for Parenting in Charlotte, North Carolina



Preschool is a school for the education of very young(2-5) children. It is not required by the state that your children attend preschool, but many parents find that a well-chosen facility does wonders for improving the children's socialization skills, self-confidence, and intelligence. Some children are ready to start at 2, while others are more comfortable starting at 3. Separation anxiety is often an issue.

No matter what you decide, be sure to visit many preschools in your area. Check out Licensing and Rating information provided by North Carolina Division of Child Development of the Department of Health and Human Services. Pay attention to the quality of care, adult/child ratio, hygiene, and curriculum.

At Bright Horizons, we recognize that a child doesn’t come to us alone, but as a member of a family. Our mission is to provide children, families, and caregivers with the means to work together and achieve their very best. We consider it our privilege to accompany each child as he or she discovers the endless possibilities within their reach. Through exploration, a loving faculty, and friendships that begin in infancy, children who come to Bright Horizons centers build a strong foundation for a lifelong interest in learning. Our state-of-the-art facilities are custom designed to meet the child care and education needs of young children in a safe and encouraging environment. Developmentally appropriate programs stress the importance of early education and individual learning styles while providing a supportive atmosphere for growth. Our curriculum, The World at Their Fingertips, empowers children to become confident, successful learners. We help each child approach school and the challenge of academic excellence with the skills and drive to succeed. Through language, math, science, art, movement and music, our stimulating and interactive programs, coupled with excellent teacher-child ratios, guide children to attain their learning potential. Because we believe that parents should be full partners in the learning process, our curriculum invites families to participate in every step of the way. Communication and involvement are always welcome as many of our program themes are derived from the ideas of children, parents, and teachers. With full-time, part-time, or back-up care options available we welcome you and your family and look forward to showing you why Bright Horizons Family Solutions Early Education & Back Up Center at Carillon is an exciting atmosphere for learning.
