Infant Community (pregnancy to 36 months)

Infant and child interaction in Infant Community Infant Community

The greatness of the human potential begins at the hour of birth. Our Infant Community provides a Montessori experience from pregnancy to 3 years of age. 

Nido and Nido Transition (0 – 18 months) 

Parents and their babies meet weekly (for 1.5 hours) in a nurturing environment to share knowledge about human development, experiences and ideas. Topics discussed include feeding, sleeping, toileting, the importance of brain and language development, hand-eye coordination and movement, to name but a few.

Classes run from 1:00pm to 2:30pm or 1:15pm to 2:45pm, depending on the day, during term time.

Parent Toddler Program (PTP) (18 – 36 months) 

PTP is a two hour weekly session for parents and their toddlers who engage in a range of activities in a specially prepared environment. Parents are offered practical suggestions concerning the application of Montessori principles in the home and benefit from observing their child using these principles in the classroom. The program responds to the child’s absorbent mind and strong sense of order, which is particular to this age group.

Classes run from 9:00am to 11:00am during term time.
