Infants are born with tremendous potential; they are eager to learn, explore, and try new things. Dr. Montessori’s research and experience as well as current information teaches us that brain and physical development progress faster at this time than at any other time in life. In the carefully prepared infant Montessori environment, the babies are provided with rich sensory materials and a calm but stimulating setting. They learn to use their large muscles for crawling, walking, and running. They use their small muscles for grasping and touching, and later, for eating, writing, and painting beautiful pictures.

 

At Oak Farm Montessori School, infants have plenty of room for play and exciting materials to stimulate their need to learn. Infants are cared for by Montessori-trained infant teachers and assistants. These caring adults help infants develop strong, loving, trusting relationships and attachments that will help to prepare them socially and emotionally for adulthood.

 

*Our Infant program is currently full for the 2021-22 school year.  We invite families interested in enrollment for the 2022-23 academic school year to contact our Admissions Director to schedule a tour of the school in the Fall of 2021.  Open Enrollment will begin in February of 2022 for potential new enrollees.
