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

Taped Voices

You Will Need:

Cassette recorder, tape, and a book, song, or poem

Directions:

Tape your voice singing, reading a book or poem, or talking to your baby. Play this tape when your baby is going to sleep, commuting in the car, or at times when you can’t be with her.

Tip:

Sing or read often to your baby while you are holding her so she will relate the sound of your voice with the warmth of your arms. Poems or books with a lot of repetition or rhyming words are best. Use a high-pitched voice or “parentese” with very young babies but try to phase out “baby talk” after about 6 months of age. Frequently say the baby’s name on the tape. This tape will help baby feel at ease when she is not with you.
