What Makes Montessori Different?
- 6 weeks – 12 months
The specially prepared environment is designed to give babies freedom to learn through their senses. Our infant/teacher ratio is 3:1. View your baby’s activities on our live webcam through a private, secure web portal.
- 12 months – 3 years
Very young children are capable of absorbing information, concepts, and skills from their surroundings and peers. The Toddler program nurtures curiosity, creativity, imagination and respect for self and others.
- 3 – 6 years
In our Primary classrooms each child moves at their own pace through carefully sequenced, hands-on Montessori materials in areas of mathematics, language development, practical life, art, reading, geography and nature developing skills.
