Our Infant Program

An exceptional place for your baby

WilmerHale is pleased to offer new parents the Infant Transition Program. Determining what’s best for you, your baby, and your family can be overwhelming — especially when the time comes to return to work.

WilmerHale and Bright Horizons can help.
Bright Horizons is available when you return to work, and in the future if your primary care is unavailable. As a WilmerHale employee, you are able to use the Infant Transition Program for 60 consecutive days during your child’s first year at a cost of $50 per day

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

Feed the Birds

You Will Need:

A bird book or internet, bird feeder (purchased or homemade), birdseed, paper or a journal

Directions:

Put bird seed in the bird feeder. For the youngest children, simply watching for birds at the feeder will be exciting. For preschoolers and older, document your findings by taking pictures, writing the words they say, or making a chart. If using a chart, you can tally the kinds of birds that are observed. Older children might research birds in books or on the internet at www.nbr.nbs.gov (Bird identification Center -- you can even hear bird songs on this site). Make a bird journal with pictures and results. Have your child note if he sees any differences in varieties of birds in different seasons.

Tip:

The more excitement you show about the birds that are in your yard, the more interest your child will show.
