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.

"We love the floor beds! I completely identified with the benefit of children being able to wake up and move when they’re ready versus being restricted by a crib. We now have a floor bed at home. Thanks Bright Horizons and Montessori for teaching young children respect for everything as well as freedom within limits."

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

  • 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.

Learning at Home

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.

Directions:

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.

Tip:

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.
