Ages 12 months to 24 months
Our Nido Program (Italian for Nest) specializes in meeting families of unique needs and offers parents information on how to give your child the best education. Children begin their path toward independence in our Montessori Nido Community. The adults are responsible to guide children along this path and every moment is a learning opportunity. At each stage in development, we must meet children's needs to maximize their developmental interests and potential. Children in our Nido program are given freedom to move, ear, sleep and communicate at will, guided by special materials and furniture to facilitate this development. Each family works with the Head Teacher to formulate an individual plan for feeding, rest, toileting, and activities. As infants' interest in communication and movement grows, they begin to seek a broader environment for stimulation and become ready to join our toddler community.
