Parent & Infant
The Parent & Infant program is designed for a group of infants and parents to come together to allow the infant to explore a prepared environment designed specifically to meet the developmental needs of the infant child, while parents practice supportive mindful observation and interaction.
The Montessori guide engages parents in conversations related to different developmental topics, led by the needs of each child and family; helps to form collaborative relationships with the guide and among other parents; and presents families with information related to bringing Montessori ideas to the home.
Topics of interest include feeding and weaning, self-care and toileting, independence and limits, sleeping issues, cognitive and social development, and language and movement development. The safe and supportive community allows parents to share challenges and insights, celebrations, and frustrations.
