Jim Greenman Early Education Innovation Center

Client: Bright Horizons

Size: 10,541 SF

studioMLA Architects worked on the Jim Greenman Early Education Innovation Center at the Bright Horizons’ World Headquarters in Newton, MA. Completed in August 2021, this childcare center has the capacity for 90 children. The space was previously used as office space for a technology company.

The 10,541 SF building had existing skylights studioMLA incorporated into the design. The skylights provide natural light from above to many classrooms, as well as architectural design. Additionally, studioMLA designed the play areas at the Center. The play areas were designed to provide children with nature-based play experiences where they can discover nature through sensory gardens, butterfly gardens, and a gardening area.

The Jim Greenman Early Education Innovation Center is the new prototype model for new Bright Horizons Childcare Centers.
