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.

"Thank you so much for taking care of our baby boy. Bright Horizons welcomed him into their classroom with open arms, and ever since, he has flourished mentally and physically. He always smiles when he sees you at drop off and we can tell he is happy. It brings so much peace of mind knowing our son loves going to school."

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.

Learning at Home

Cloud Gazing

You Will Need:

A blanket, a day with some fluffy clouds, and the book It Looked Like Spilt Milk

Directions:

Lie on your back with your child and gaze at the sky. Babies will enjoy the sensations of the wind, leaves rustling, and the connection with you. Toddlers and preschoolers will enjoy naming the clouds based on what they look like. You may need to start this activity by pointing out shapes and body parts like ears, noses, wings, etc. in the clouds.  Children may become curious about why there are so many different shapes, why they change, where they go when they disappear, etc. To prepare for these questions or to research after a gazing session, visit www.window.ucar.edu.

Tip:

Point out everything you see and hear while lying quietly: birds, airplanes, bugs, colors, etc.
