A Gentle School Beginning

Nurturing Teachers Provide Your Baby With Loving Care

Infants - Pooh Nursery | 0 -12 months | Serving Washington, DC

The Pooh Nursery Starts Them Off On The Right Foot

From morning circle time to naps and play, every day in the Pooh Nursery follows the children’s rhythms. Designated sleep areas are quiet, while play areas are sensory-stimulating with open spaces for wiggling, rolling, creeping, and crawling.

Learning Through Play Makes Every Day Fun

Babies learn about their world by engaging all of their senses. Plenty of fun activities, including music, storytime, pretend play, and gross motor play, are interspersed with naps and eating, all on your baby’s individual rhythms.

Early Language & Literacy Puts Your Baby Ahead

It’s never too early to develop language and literacy skills! From talking to your baby, reading books, singing nursery rhymes and songs, and even introducing French and Spanish, all children in the Pooh Nursery thrive in a language-rich environment.

Caring, Patient, & Hardworking Teachers Guide The Way

Highly-trained staff develops loving relationships with your baby, helping them to learn and grow. Every baby receives gentle, nurturing care and guidance as they begin to learn about their emotions and interact with other children and caregivers. 

Outdoor Play Introduces The Natural World

Part of your baby’s sensory learning experience includes getting out into nature. Age-separated play spaces in expansive playgrounds make exploring safe, while other days allow for enjoying the outdoors in a buggy ride, weather permitting.

Hear What Parents Have To SAY . . .

“Our daughter has attended Bright Start since she was 4 months old (she is now 3). I cannot say enough about the caring, nurturing teachers. I could not have asked for better to care for our child. As she has gotten older, it has been wonderful to see how much she is also learning at daycare (and how much she enjoys learning!). In addition to the normal letters and numbers, she has been learning about famous African-Americans during Black History Month. It’s pretty amazing to have your 3-year-old come home talking excitedly about George Washington Carver! Bright Start also has some extra activities that our daughter loves – yoga twice a month, Baba Ras D once a month, librarian story time once a month, plus a weekly music class for the older kids.”
