Infant Program (3 – 24 months of age)

Younger infant, "Ladybug" classroom.

Steps to Learning Montessori Preschool provides child care and education for age 3 months to 2 years.

Our Young Infant “Ladybug” program (3 months to walking) is designed around your child’s needs and his/her own schedule. We believe that an infant’s emotional support is as important as his/her physical growth. In our infant program, indoor/outdoor exploration is important. Our activities include singing, stories, music and movement, sensory activities (play dough, water, sand) and arts (body painting, ice cube painting, themed crafty work). We will hold and hug and do our best to create a warm and loving environment for your young child.

Our Older Infant “Busybee” program (walking-2 yrs old) will follow a daily schedule that supports age appropriate curriculum similar to Young Infant Program and Toddler Program.
