Our Infant / Nido Program

"The greatness of the human personality begins at the hour of birth." -Dr. Maria Montessori

The Italian word 'Nido' - meaning 'nest' - conveys the spirit of our infant environment, where each child is nurtured as a unique individual, and encouraged to explore in a beautiful, safe, and orderly space. Materials are carefully chosen for their educational purpose and sensory qualities.

These first years of life are an extraordinary period of cognitive and emotional growth, brain development, and language acquisition. Our Montessori-trained infant teachers form close bonds with the children, encouraging the development of language and body awareness through movement and exploration. Under their care, the children establish a strong sense of security and autonomy, laying a foundation for lifelong learning.

What Parents are Saying

Our greatest advocates are our families.

"Our daughter is developing her gross and fine motor skills early on, making her adventurous. We love the freeness in the classrooms that allows her to explore and learn safely without restriction. Her incredible teachers at Bright Horizons have brought out the best in her."

Our Curriculum Components

“The environment must be rich in motives which lend interest to activity and invite the child to conduct his own experiences.”
-Dr. Maria Montessori

  • Independence Babies are marvelous learners, immediately investigating the sights, sounds, and feel of the world. In our classrooms, each child develops a sense of self and learns independent skills such as using a spoon, drinking from a cup, and sleeping on a floor bed.
  • Sensory Learning Our Montessori curriculum provides infants with a safe, engaging world full of active exploration through hearing, touching, and moving as well as meaningful interactions with caregivers, books, songs, and lots of response to their vocalizations.
  • Language Foreign language, music, baby sign language, and early literacy activities enrich our infants’ daily experiences. Campus “field trips” in the baby buggy provide infants with a view of the real world via a fantastic array of outdoor sensory stimulation.
  • Individual Care and Exploration Designed for individual development at the child’s natural pace, babies feel safe and free to grow, move, and explore their surroundings. This provides an optimal opportunity to engage emerging physical, sensorial, perceptual, cognitive, and social skills.

Restaurant Rescue Box

You Will Need:

A small box or bag containing special items that are only to be taken out at restaurants. Possibilities include: activity books, a calculator, rocks and a magnifying glass, small Etch A Sketch, magnets, paper clips to make a chain, special pens and a book, strings or yarn for braiding, sticker books, magic slates, etc. Do not use small objects like paper clips for children under three.

Collect the items and rotate different activities each time you go to a restaurant. Make the items in the box special, to be used only at restaurants.

Children will look forward to going to restaurants to see what’s in the box, which may help them sit at the table for longer periods.
