The Infant Centre supports children aged 6 months to 18 months. It is facilitated by a certified zero to three Montessori care-giver, usually referred to as an "Assistant to Infancy". She is supported by two other adults.
The toddler program is designed for children 18months to 3 years of age, to assist the child during this special period of growth. It provides children of this age with an opportunity to explore new relationships with friends and to interact with adults in a loving and nurturing environment. As part of their early Montessori experience, toddlers are introduced to age-appropriate Montessori materials and invited to make choices from a variety of activities that support their developmental interests and needs. Outdoor play is a part of the daily routine.
The following curriculum areas are present in the infant/toddler classroom :
• Practical Life - to instill a desire to care for oneself, for others and for the environment, leading to a strong sense of social awareness and responsibility.
