Our Toddler Program

A place for growing curious, happy and confident toddlers

Our space is built for active and inquisitive toddlers with environments made up of well-planned learning centers that allow for physical activity, child choice and self-directed play, small groups, and supportive teaching. There are reading nooks, sensory tables, great books, pretend play areas, baskets filled with dress-up and exploratory materials, musical instruments, and places to explore.

Learning experiences are planned to promote each toddler’s growing independence, to enhance social skills, and to build the confidence needed to reach their individual potential.

Our greatest advocates are also our closest friends.

"Thank you so much for taking care of our baby boy. Bright Horizons welcomed him into their classroom with open arms, and ever since, he has flourished mentally and physically.

Your baby

Directions:

To the tune of "The Wheels on the Bus," make up verses and sing about what your baby or toddler is doing. For example, "Maria (interject your child’s name) at lunch is eating peas, eating peas, eating peas; Maria at lunch is eating peas; Yum, yum, yum, yum, yum!" Or, "Barry is riding in the car, riding in the car, riding in the car; Barry is riding in the car; Off we go!"

Tip:

Make up different verses.
