Bright Horizons Montessori at Denver Place

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.

"I love that I can visit my 9 month old daughter during the day. Being a first time mom, I was super nervous to let her out of my sight. Bright Horizons has been so great at helping both of us through these changes. And, Gilly absolutely lights up when we walk through the classroom door and see Miss Amanda. It makes all the difference knowing she’s happy, well cared for, and learning every day."

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.

Puppetry with Infants and Toddlers

You Will Need:

Colorful puppets, either purchased or homemade (make sure they don't have small pieces that might come off and create a choking hazard).

Directions:

Look into the eyes of your baby, hold the puppet on your hand and have the puppet softly touch and sing or talk with your baby. Wait for your child to make sounds or words back and then continue the "conversation."

Tip:

Use the puppet as a fun way to encourage language.
