Ages 12 weeks to 15 months
To Aid life, leaving it free, however, to unfold itself, that is the basic task of the educator.” Dr. Maria Montessori
The Nido Environment is a special place meant to replicate the home. In the Nido, the children will be met with warmth, love, care and respect. The infants have a safe and clean environment to move, explore and discover in daily. Under careful observation and with patience the teachers aid the children throughout their day. They provide the necessary space, time, and materials as they develop hand-eye coordination, grasping skills, fine motor skills, gross motor skills, language and coordination of their body through movement.
The Nido program provides a comforting place to breastfeed, practice gentle weaning when ready, and an introduction to toilet learning. The teachers and parents continuously collaborate to help promote healthy development and happy children. Together, we work together within the community to create harmony.
