Infant Program (3 – 24 months of age)
Steps to Learning Montessori Preschool provides child care and education for age 3 months to 2 years.
Our infant program is for children aged 3 months through 2 years and is designed around the child’s individual needs and their physical growth. For young infants, we follow the child’s established routine, and older infants (walking to 2 years old) follow a daily routine similar to that of the toddlers. In this program, primary caregiving is part of the curriculum. We spend ample time during diaper changes and feeding to ensure proper comfort and care, and to bond with the child. Additionally, we provide reading time, music and movement, yoga, arts & crafts, sensory, play-based, Montessori and STEM activities. The playground is an extension of the classroom as part of our Outdoor Classroom Initiative. Our goal in this program is to create a loving and nurturing environment for your 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.
