There are sixteen full-time spaces in the Infant Rooms. Basic infant developmental materials and philosophies are introduced in the Infant Rooms. Each child is given one-on-one attention with the materials. Each child keeps his or her own feeding and sleeping schedule. Parents supply formula, food, diapers, and diaper wipes.
Toddler Program (15 Months-24 Months)
There are fifteen full-time spaces in the Toddler Room. Pre-Montessori materials and philosophy are used in this program and other activities such as group line time and art projects are introduced. “Work time” is started in this classroom. Work time will include puzzles, painting, story time, crafts, and the introduction of basic vocabulary, mathematics on a base 5 and introduction of basic Montessori materials in the sensorial areas.
Children in this age group will be encouraged to be more independent and responsible for their eating area after meals and snacks, and being more responsible for the care of the environment. Toilet training may take place with the older children in this age group. Parents will supply formula, food, diapers, and diaper wipes. The Center will provide a hot lunch and two snacks per day (including whole milk and juice) once the child begins to eat table food.
