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 Body Parts

You Will Need:

Your baby

Directions:

As you are bathing, diapering, dressing, or holding your child, talk about body parts. At bath time, say things like, "Let’s put soap on your hand" or "Let’s rinse off your legs." As you are dressing your child, say things like, "Put your head through the hole." Talk about your own body parts, too -- as your child reaches out for your face, identify what he is touching.

Tip:

Sing songs and use different vocal tones.
