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.
