Our Infant Program

An exceptional place for your baby

Our space is built for babies on the move: look for bright mirrors, warm rugs, sensory tables, great books, and baskets filled with soft, natural materials. There are musical instruments, toys for pretend play, safe equipment and places to explore. You’ll have peace of mind knowing that our stringent safety, security, and cleanliness standards meet or exceed all state and local guidelines.

Even these youngest of children are encouraged to learn about their world through our individualized curriculum that invites exploration, celebrates each important milestone, and supports the transition from the sensory motor world of infancy to the increasingly social and self-directed world of toddlers.

What Parents are Saying

Our greatest advocates are also our closest friends.

"The experience with Bright Horizons was great. Everyone was welcoming and I didn't have to think twice about leaving my son there. Having this facility available for my son is more than a blessing."

Learning at Home

Scarf Box

You Will Need:

Several colorful scarves or squares of light material, an empty tissue box

Directions:

Tie the ends of the scarves together. Bunch them up and put them into the tissue box, leaving one end poking out. Hand the end of the scarf to your child so he can pull out the long strand of scarves. As each scarf appears, ask questions like, “What’s on that scarf? How does it feel?” Repeat as long as your child is interested.

Tip:

Only use under adult supervision; child might become tangled in the material.
