Montessori Programs for Infants
The Younger Infant Program is designed to meet the needs of infants from six weeks of age until they are walking. Infants are encouraged to crawl. In addition to maximum movement, the young infant experiences visual and tactile stimulation. The environment promotes movement and independence.
The Older Infant Program is designed for the walking infant from 12-17 months of age. The older infant begins to display independence by insisting on doing everything by himself.
The curious infant loves to put things together and take them apart, so large piece puzzles and age-appropriate toys are part of the environment.
