Infants (6 weeks - 14 months)

Our Infant environment was designed with Montessori’s vision of a “Nido” (or nest) – a peaceful, loving place where babies can explore and feel secure. Guides speak in gentle tones, the daily pace is unhurried, and décor is understated and homelike.

Every detail in our prepared Montessori environment has been selected with the child’s whole development in mind. It has developmentally appropriate materials and activities that support the infant through each stage of their growth. Because we “follow the child,” we provide a variety of activities where infants can explore based upon their curiosity and mobility, not just their age.

Our Nido (infant room) is a small environment with a maximum of 8 babies and it welcomes children ages 6 weeks to 14 months. After the age of 14 months a child may begin his transition to the young toddler program.
