Our Infant Program

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.

As part of our Bright Learner process for understanding, planning, and communicating your child's developmental journey, our infant teachers are able to provide parents electronic updates throughout the day through our My Bright Day mobile app to share each child's experience with parents.  This service is optional for our families.

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.

"I still feel new to this program and I don't know you all well yet. But my baby knows you and he is comfortable with you. And that means the world to me. Plus, I know all too well how much effort it is to keep him well and happy. I appreciate your work so much!"

Our Curriculum Components

The building blocks to balanced education.

  • Language Works Listening to stories or classical music, one-on-one spoken interaction with caregiver.
  • Math Counts Counting through books, poetry, and songs.
  • Science Rocks Bubble blowing, interacting with nature through walks and outdoor exploration.
  • ArtSmart Finger (or feet) painting, experiences with textiles.
  • Our World Rich connections — via smiles and hugs — with the center community.
  • Well Aware Soft safe places that encourage rolling over, pulling up, crawling, and safely exploring.

Learning at Home

Tippy Toe

You Will Need:

Your baby

Directions:

Tiptoe your fingers over your baby’s body: up her arms and legs, across her belly, etc. While tiptoeing, recite this poem: “Tippy Tippy tiptoe, off we go. Tippy Tippy tiptoe, to and fro. Tippy Tippy tiptoe, through the house. Tippy Tippy tiptoe, quiet as a mouse."

Tip:

By the time they’re four months old, babies are noticing the individual sounds you make and are learning how vowel and consonant sounds are used together. 

Babies under six months respond to a high-pitched voice. 

For children over six months, avoid using “baby talk” but make your voice very rhythmic.
