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 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

Follow the Light

You Will Need:

Flashlight

Directions:

In a dark room, hold your baby in your arms and shine the flashlight on an object. Talk about the object – say things like, “I see your crib” and “Your elephant is on your pillow.” Then, shine it on another object. You can also make it disappear and reappear by turning the flashlight on and off.

Tip:

Keep the flashlight on and move it around the room – your baby’s eyes will track the light.
