Our Infant Program

An exceptional place for your baby to thrive

An Exceptional Place for Your Baby to Thrive 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 outdoor 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.

"Bright Horizons has created a wonderful environment for our children to grow and thrive. I am grateful knowing that my son is developing in a safe, healthy, and happy place surrounded by an outstanding staff. Your positive attitude and ability to connect with the kids makes every day better."

Learning at Home

Peek-A-Fruit

You Will Need:

Different kinds of fruit, a basket or bowl, and a cloth large enough to cover one piece of fruit

Directions:

Sit with your baby on the floor near the basket of fruit. Take a piece of fruit and say, “Here is a green apple. I’m going to cover it with our cloth.” Then pull off the cloth and enthusiastically say, “Peek-a-Boo, apple!”

Tip:

Your baby can also investigate the fruit. Place the basket of fruit where your child will be able to crawl over to it.
