Nido (infant) community

The Nido (Infant) Community is for infants 3 months to 12/15 months. This class offers a safe and beautiful environment for infants to have freedom of movement and exploration. All manipulatives in this environment are made of natural materials, and the infants are encouraged to explore and experience the world around them independently with much love and encouragement. The guides are trained to offer the appropriate materials for optimal development through observation. The maximum enrollment for this class is 8 infants, and there are 2 adults, one a Montessori trained infant guide, and one assistant.

Toddler Communities

Toddler Communities, for children 12/15 months to 3 years. These classes engage the now mobile child with real work. Even at this early age the child can be seen washing dishes and mopping floors. A heavy emphasis is put on language as the child is in the sensitive period for learning words and expressive communication. All work in this class has the ultimate goal of enjoyment and the development of concentration. It is the age of work for the sake of work (not an end result)! It is here that the child begins to learn and practice using words for conflict resolution, rather than physical reactions. This age is also working on potty training, with a very positive approach. We have 2 toddler classes and the maximum enrollment for each class is 13 toddlers, with 2 adults. One is a Montessori trained guide and one assistant.

Primary Classrooms

This class, which includes the 3 year olds, 4 year olds, and Charter Kindergarteners, builds on the foundations of the toddler class. Now the child is taking his developing concentration and applying it to work in the areas of Practical Life, Sensorial, Language, and Mathematics. Explosions in learning happen at this age as the child learns to write and read. The foundations of math and geometry are also explored. Conflict resolution is expanded upon and so many “why” questions begin to emerge. The child is fascinated by the real world and in this reality-based environment, they are always encouraged to explore the world. We have 2 primary classes and the maximum enrollment for each class is 29, with 2 – 3 adults depending on class size. One adult is a Montessori trained guide with 1 – 2 assistants.
