Phoenix baby care with Bright Horizons 

Bright Horizons is one of the world’s leading education and care companies. By combining high-quality child care with early education, we offer Phoenix baby care programs that can have a profound impact on children for a lifetime.

Each of our early education centers features research-based programs and welcoming environments that our educators have carefully designed to support your baby’s exciting developmental milestones. Soft, sensory-rich spaces provide babies with safe spaces to explore, pull up, roll over, and crawl. Our personalized care plans support your daily schedule, your child’s nutritional needs, and other unique requirements of your home and work life.

In each of our Phoenix baby care centers, we engage in six Signature Practices for infants that encourage discovery and stimulate early learning.

  • Prime Times. These one-on-one interactions between your child and their primary caregiver build nurturing relationships through everyday moments of caring, play, and communication.
  • Outdoor Discovery. Time spent outdoors exploring nature helps inspire motor and sensory development.
  • Art Activities. Finger painting, music, and pretend play sparks your child’s creativity.
  • Sign Language. Learning basic signs like “more” and “please” helps your child communicate their needs effectively and enhance language development.
  • Daily Reading. Reading age-appropriate books with your child builds listening skills, vocabulary, and a love of reading.
  • Treasure Baskets. These collections of natural and everyday objects encourage exploration and spark curiosity.

When’s the best time to look for baby care in Phoenix?

Start looking for a Phoenix baby care provider as soon as you know you’ll need a child care provider. The best Phoenix daycare options are likely to have waitlists. The earlier you start, the higher the likelihood that space will be available for you when you’re ready to enroll your child in daycare.

What are the different types of daycare options?

Daycare options range from large centers, to licensed daycares within a provider’s residence, to nannies and au pairs who provide care in your home. Each type of daycare offers its own benefits. Nannies and au pairs provide parents with more flexibility, while family care situations offer social opportunities in a smaller setting. Larger centers often provide more formal early learning opportunities with trained educators.

How early should I start my child in daycare?

Some parents choose to enroll their baby in daycare as soon as parental leave is over, while others wait until the preschool years. Whenever you choose to start daycare, your child will benefit from spending time with other children and the care of highly trained early education professionals.
