Our infant environments embody Maria Montessori’s vision of a “Nido” or nest; they are peaceful, loving places where babies can explore and feel secure. Teachers speak in gentle tones, the daily pace is unhurried, and décor is understated and homelike. Each child in our care is an individual to be nurtured with affection and respect. As is customary for Montessori environments, every detail is selected with the child’s whole development in mind.
This is a period of phenomenal physical and mental growth for young infants. The first three years are fundamentally important in the development of a child’s potential and subsequently, great care is taken to provide an environment where the attention is provided to physical development as well as to what Montessori refers to as a ‘spiritual embryo’. This is when the child’s intelligence takes form and he begins to develop his personality through the interactions in his environment as he acquires his culture and language. Our Infant program welcomes children from 6 weeks to 12 months. It provides an environment that caters to the needs of the infants in fostering their psychomotor development, physicalindependence and language development.
