Earn Your Degree at No Cost to You.

Announcing the Horizons Teacher Degree Program

We’re excited to let you know Bright Horizons has joined with Rasmussen University to offer employees combined reimbursement on tuition expenses that covers the total cost of qualified programs within the Rasmussen University School of Education!

Bright Horizons employees can take up to eight Early Childhood Education classes per year in the ECE Associate's and Bachelor's programs — at no out-of-pocket cost. And you can finish your degree faster by transferring in your completed CDA to earn 12 college credits!

Our ECE programs do not prepare students for licensed teaching positions in any public school setting, but students will have the opportunity to help shape the futures of young children from birth to age five in a non-public school setting or leadership role.
