Infant Program

Quote(Ages 6 weeks – 14-18 months old)

The first few years of a child's life are crucial to his or her personality and intellectual development. In his acclaimed book The First Three years of Life, Dr. Burton L. White says "that a child born with the best mental and physical capabilities may not attain even average levels of competence without exposure to appropriate experiences".

Infants need not only love and emotional nurturance and a healthy physical environment, but also an environment which promotes their very real need to learn. The Montessori approach provides a basis for individualized learning activities, appropriate for even the earliest stages of a child's development.

Our infant program is committed to promoting quality Montessori infant care for children from six weeks to eighteen months to provide a continual balance between supporting the development of the infant's two basic psychological trusts; trust in the environment and trust in self.
