Our infant program nurtures children who are 18 months to 3 years old. The Montessori approach to education is respect for the student. Even with our youngest student, adult guides seek to assist, not teach. During these early years of life, when the foundation of personality is laid down, our Montessori teachers influence the child’s development by modeling, not by correcting.
In our Montessori toddler program, the children learn to trust their world and their own competence. They learn independence and the direct effect of their decisions on others who share the same needs and wants. They develop respect for nature, a thirst for knowledge, and experience satisfaction when they succeed.
Italian physician, Maria Montessori, made her observations about children’s development, more than a century ago. Today, neurological research on early learning confirms the accuracy and relevance of Dr. Montessori’s teaching methods.
