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.

"Thank you so much for all that you do for the children, families and staff. Bright Horizons has been a second home for our three daughters, and our family, for nearly 10 years now! The teachers have contributed tremendously to our daughters' growth and development, and the feeling of leaving your children with people they adore is incredibly comforting."

Discs for Babies: New!

You Will Need:

Baby food jar lids, plastic cups or tissue boxes

Directions:

Collect the lids from baby food jars. Wash them thoroughly. Give your baby a pile of lids and an empty plastic container or a Kleenex box. Allow him to explore freely. Your baby might drop them, put them in the box or container, manipulate them with his hands, or explore them with his mouth. You might talk with your baby about what you see him doing or you might do something with the lids and see if he imitates you.

Tip:

Describe what you see your baby doing by saying things like, “Oh, you put them in the hole and now they are in the box. Let’s shake the box and listen to hear what it sounds like.”
