Assistants to Infancy (0-3)

The first three years of life are the most fundamental in the development of human beings and their potential. It is a period when the core of personality, social skills, and human values are developed. An understanding of the child's development allows Montessori environments to meet the needs of the infant and foster a sense of belonging, independence, and language acquisition enabling children to feel able and capable. Montessori infant-toddler programmes from birth to 3, are provided in several different formats:

  • Ante-natal: Classes for expectant mothers and their partners.
  • Parent/Caregiver and Toddler: Classes for parents/caregivers to learn with their child and gain an understanding of creating supportive environments for children of this age. The class focuses on how to observe the child and how to offer appropriate activities.
  • Nido: Environments for children between the ages of approximately two and fourteen months specially designed for children who are not yet walking.
  • Infant Communities: Environments provided for children from approximately fourteen months to three years that focus on developing movement, language, and independence within a social context.
