The Bright Horizons Child Care and Early Education Center is located in the heart of Downtown Louisville. The center is located on 4th St. between the blocks of Broadway and Chestnut near the Brown Hotel and Palace Theatre. Parking for the center is available by taking Broadway and turning right onto 5th St.. You will turn right into the 5th St. parking garage located at the end of the long red brick building. The parking garage sits back off of the street. You will pull into the parking garage and take a right staying on the main level. The parking at that point goes back in an L shape and there are spaces marked for short term parking for the center. The entrance to the center is to your left on the sidewalk before you exit the parking garage.

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 outdoor 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 and prepare for preschool and beyond.

Learning at Home

Art in a can

You Will Need:

An empty can with a lid- such as a coffee can, Pringles can or powdered formula can-some paint, a piece of paper, scissors and a round ball or object (a golf ball works well as well as a marble or small wiffle ball)

Directions:

Clean out the can and then cut the paper to fit inside. Drop some paint into the bottom of the can-or roll the ball into the paint & drop into the bottom-and put the lid on. Seal the lid with tape and hand it to your child. Once they are done rolling, dropping, pulling and exploring open the can up and show them the designs the ball created on the paper!

Tip:

This can be done with infants of any age! Lay them on the floor in front of the can and let them push it, prop them up in a boppy pillow and let them kick the bin with their feet or let an older infant roll and drop it off of a low table. Talk to them about what the can is doing "Look! You rolled it across the floor" or "Did you hear that noise when it fell on the floor"? Let them explore the can- the different sounds it makes when you tap the bottom and the top, try to pull the tape off and of course, try to chew on the lid or bottom! When you take the paper out of the can, talk to them about their creation as well and show it to them. This is a really fun project but with little mess!
