Infant Program | Ages 6 weeks to 18 months

It is designed for infants ages 6 weeks to 18 months of age to explore their environment physically, socially, intellectually, and emotionally.

Our infant program is committed to promoting a continual balance between supporting the development of these two basic psychological trusts and the bonding relationship between the teacher and the child, while at the other is support for a growing sense of self and independence.
  • Our infants grow in a nurturing environment under the guidance of Montessori teachers.
  • The aim of Montessori infant programs is to foster the development of basic trust and to assist in the normal development of the personality.
  • Basic trust develops in an environment where people respond appropriately to the infant’s communication of needs to be loved, respected, and accepted.
  • Infants learn through their senses. They learn by watching and moving freely. Freedom to move is essential to the development of the infant’s potential.
  • The infant is considered as a whole person and is affected by the quality of holding and feeding, as well as the quality of physical care.
  • Learning, which leads to independence, occurs when infants participate in their daily routines of care.
