Our Infant / Nido Program

"The greatness of the human personality begins at the hour of birth." -Dr. Maria Montessori

The Italian word 'Nido' - meaning 'nest' - conveys the spirit of our infant environment, where each child is nurtured as a unique individual, and encouraged to explore in a beautiful, safe, and orderly space. Materials are carefully chosen for their educational purpose and sensory qualities.

These first years of life are an extraordinary period of cognitive and emotional growth, brain development, and language acquisition. Our Montessori-trained infant teachers form close bonds with the children, encouraging the development of language and body awareness through movement and exploration. Under their care, the children establish a strong sense of security and autonomy, laying a foundation for lifelong learning.

What Parents are Saying

Our greatest advocates are our families.

"We are so thankful for each and every staff member who works with our two girls. They look forward to coming to school every day and being with their teachers. We are beyond impressed with the curriculum in each class, and the creativity that goes into every activity. Thank you."

Our Curriculum Components

“The environment must be rich in motives which lend interest to activity and invite the child to conduct his own experiences.”
-Dr. Maria Montessori

  • Independence Babies are marvelous learners, immediately investigating the sights, sounds, and feel of the world. In our classrooms, each child develops a sense of self and learns independent skills such as using a spoon, drinking from a cup, and sleeping on a floor bed.
  • Sensory Learning Our Montessori curriculum provides infants with a safe, engaging world full of active exploration through hearing, touching, and moving as well as meaningful interactions with caregivers, books, songs, and lots of response to their vocalizations.
  • Language Foreign language, music, baby sign language, and early literacy activities enrich our infants’ daily experiences. Campus “field trips” in the baby buggy provide infants with a view of the real world via a fantastic array of outdoor sensory stimulation.
  • Individual Care and Exploration Designed for individual development at the child’s natural pace, babies feel safe and free to grow, move, and explore their surroundings. This provides an optimal opportunity to engage emerging physical, sensorial, perceptual, cognitive, and social skills.

Sensory Bottles

You Will Need:

Empty clear plastic bottles (small water or soda bottles work great), rice, beans, small stones, feathers, small household items, masking tape.

Directions:

Fill a bottle up ¾ with one of the materials and seal it tightly with tape. Sealing it tightly is important because a baby can choke on a loose bottle cap. Play with your baby or toddler by rolling, shaking, and tapping the bottle. Explore the different sounds that the bottle makes. Talk about the colors and weights (heavy/light).

Tip:

If you see the tape starting to peel, fix it immediately. If you have a glue gun handy, you can also use that to attach the lid to the bottle. Infants may also enjoy watching water in the bottle that has been dyed with food coloring. Adding glitter or small confetti stars to the water can add interest, as well. Closely supervise – only allow your young child to play with the bottles when you are around.
