Our Toddler Program

A place for growing curious, happy and confident toddlers

Our space is built for active and inquisitive toddlers with environments made up of well-planned learning centers that allow for physical activity, child choice and self-directed play, small groups, and supportive teaching. There are reading nooks, sensory tables, great books, pretend play areas, baskets filled with dress-up and exploratory materials, musical instruments, and places to explore.

Learning experiences are planned to promote each toddler’s growing independence, to enhance social skills, and to build the confidence needed to reach their individual potential.

What Parents are Saying

Our greatest advocates are also our closest friends.

"Thank you so much for taking care of our baby boy. Bright Horizons welcomed him into their classroom with open arms, and ever since, he has flourished mentally and physically. He always smiles when he sees you at drop off and we can tell he is happy. It brings so much peace of mind knowing our son loves going to school."

Learning at Home

Treasures in a Bag

You Will Need:

Purse or canvas bag and small items (magnets, keys, old credit cards, lipstick, small toys, paint brush, etc.)

Directions:

Put objects in the purse or bag. Then, have your child open the bag and discover the treasures. Talk to your child about what she is finding. Say things like, “What do you call that?” and “What can we do with that?”

Tip:

This is a fun activity for your child to do in a restaurant, while waiting for a table or food. Be sure that objects are large enough that your child will not choke on them.
