The CuddleBright Experience was designed as a strategy to bring the science of early childhood into communities.  It is a tool produced by the Simms/Mann Institute to help new parents bond with their babies—because healthy bonds build healthy brains.  The CuddleBright Experience distills early child development theory, clinical knowledge, and neuroscience into a user-friendly kit that allows parents and caregivers to foster healthy early development in the children they care for.

The Simms/Mann Institute proudly partners with qualified 501(c)(3) nonprofit hospitals, health centers, and community-based agencies to empower underserved families with young children.

By providing in-kind contributions of the CuddleBright toolkit, the Simms/Mann Institute offers a no-cost resource for community providers to amplify their existing parent-child programming.

Clinicians and other providers can weave the CuddleBright curriculum into their practice with families, to anchor dialogue about building healthy attachments between parents and children. By sharing CuddleBright with the families they serve, organizations can enhance programmatic offerings, foster supportive parenting, and increase positive early childhood development.
