The Bugs Room is tailored to infants ages 6 months to 1 year

The Bugs Room is for our youngest, from age 6 months until around the time they begin to waddle. If your child can already waddle, please visit our Rainbow Room page here→

At Mighty Minds, newborns are cared for in the Bugs Room. This room is an infant-only room and welcoming place for your child to get to know the new world that they are now a part of and to trust those who are caring for them. Our teachers nurture curiosity and respond to each child’s individual needs.

In addition, our teachers understand how difficult it can be for Baby to be away from parents during these early months. and how difficult, too, it can be for parents to make the hand off, which is why Mighty Minds offers flexibility. We are committed to working with each child and each parent to help ease the stresses of this transition in order to produce the most beneficial outcomes for our children. We invite you to challenge us how we can better accommodate you. [Contact Us]

The infant curriculum at Mighty Minds consists of developmentally appropriate activities designed to help your infant reach key milestones, and our teachers perform periodic reviews of your child's progress using the Developmental Milestone overviews.

We know the psychological importance of Baby’s first years—they are critical to success in all aspects of their life. This cognizance is reinforced daily, with each smile, soft word, and loving touch.
