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 all that you do for the children, families and staff. Bright Horizons has been a second home for our three daughters, and our family, for nearly 10 years now! The teachers have contributed tremendously to our daughters' growth and development, and the feeling of leaving your children with people they adore is incredibly comforting."

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

Conversations with Babies

You Will Need:

A baby and someone to converse with her

Directions:

Look at your baby and talk with her during daily routines. Talk about body parts, identifying objects, daily events, and the people and places in her life. Explain what is happening, describe what will happen next or sing songs.

Tip:

Hearing lots of language in conversational tones is important to the development of langugage. Speaking in expressive tones and pitches provides opportunities for your baby to begin to differentiate sounds. If your baby babbles back, take turns, as if you are in conversation together (i.e. - You say something, your baby babbles back and then you say something again). This helps babies learn the give and take of conversation.
