Bright Horizons Early Education Center at Horizon High School is a licensed Child Care Center. Bright Horizons is a lab school in cooperation with Adams 12 Five Star Schools Career and Technical Education (CTE) programs and Horizon High School.

Bright Horizons encourages exploration and growth in a developmentally appropriate environment that is stimulating, safe, consistent and nurturing. We strive to enhance each child's natural curiosity and love of learning.

Our program provides opportunities for each child to master tasks that are appropriate to his or her level of development. We are committed to providing quality educational programs for children in the Five Star District.

In Fall 2019, Bright Horizons will begin transitioning into a district preschool program for children ages 3-5 and gradually phase out the current infant and toddler classrooms as children age-up into the next class.  For more information about this transition read the parent letter

Space is limited, and Bright Horizons frequently has a list of families waiting for an opportunity to enroll. Capacities are in place due to space availability and staff to child ratios.

For more information about the Bright Horizons program contact the Director, Lisa Lambrecht at lisa.lambrecht@adams12.org at (720) 972-4517.
