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

"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."

Silly Songs

You Will Need:

Imagination

Directions:

Create lyrics to any familiar tune, such as “Twinkle, Twinkle, Little Star." Sing about what you see as you are driving, favorite toys or games, family members, bed time, etc.

Tip:

Repeat words often -- it makes songs easier to learn. Use nonsense words when you can’t think of anything else.
