Age Group: 6 weeks – 17 months
The infant community is children from 6 weeks of age to 17 months. Some of them have established crawling. They experience our age-appropriate distinguished infant curriculum and program. Within a nurturing environment, an experienced, qualified Montessori guide fosters the development gross and fine motor skills, language, social mixing, independence, and cognition. These most profound and fundamental early years of life are protected and enhanced according to their characteristics and needs. Dr. Maria Montessori called this the second embryonic period, a time during which the human personality enters a historical and geographical milieu and is immersed in a particular culture. The child’s individual essence differentiates and expresses itself as an emerging social being.
