Helping the infant mind in its work of development
Montessori Beginnings meets on Friday mornings, 9:30-11:00
A Fall 9-week session, Winter 13-week session, and Spring 6-week session are offered during the school year. For best value enroll for the entire school year!
Infants’ abilities and characteristics change seemingly overnight. Each morning babies greet their parents as new and curious beings. Parents crave information to understand this rapid development and how to best support their child’s burgeoning independence.
Montessori Beginnings is a gathering of parents or caregivers with infants and toddlers from 8 weeks to 3 years of age. It is a cheerful, relaxed environment that is scaled to the comfort of very young children. Beautiful toys and handmade materials entice babies to manipulate and discover, leading to coordination of movement and refinement of senses. Movement mats, balance beams, mirrors, and more encourage babies to joyfully crawl, creep, cruise, and walk independently.
Parenting issues are discussed individually as well as in small groups, providing support to new parents from those who have “been there.” Home consultations, observation/reflection journals, weekly educational handouts, and special events are all included in this program.
“The study of child psychology in the first years of life opens to our eyes such wonders that no one seeing them with understanding can fail to be deeply stirred. Our work as adults does not consist in teaching, but in helping the infant mind in its work of development.”
– Dr. Maria Montessori
