Dr. Montessori observed that the first three years of life are the foundation in the development of human beings and their potential. Programs are offered according to developmental needs. The Infant Community (Toddlers) is for children walking well to 3 years.
The environment is specially prepared so the children can explore, interact and fulfill their needs. The furniture and materials are proportioned to the children to enable them to succeed as they strive for independence. The environment and activities are designed to meet the specific needs and sensitive periods of children this age. Through purposeful work such as “practical life” the children develop their coordination, independence, self confidence and a strong self esteem.
The Infant Community offers half and full day programs four and five days a week.
When the child is ready, between 2 1/2 and 3 years of age, he transitions into the Children’s House/Primary.
