"The greatest sign of success for a teacher... is to be able to say, ’The children are now working as if I did not exist.’" ~ Maria Montessori
​Infant Program (6 weeks – 18 months)

 

 

Creek Home Montessori provides a nurturing environment to care for your baby.  Our teachers listen and communicate with parents to ensure both the child’s and parents’ needs are met.  We are attentive to your baby as important milestones are reached, such as learning to roll over, crawl, walk, smile, babble, and wave hello!  Creek Montessori Home Academy teachers use the Teaching Strategies curriculum to ensure your child is learning through educational concepts, social interactions, play, and new experiences.  The Teaching Strategies authentic assessment tools guide teachers in documenting observations, ensuring all children are meeting developmentally appropriate milestones and in turn introducing new activities for learning.

 

Daily Schedule:

The infant classroom provides many opportunities for stimulating and nurturing young infants’ minds, but also allows each child an opportunity to rest and recharge.  Young infants determine their own schedules- there is no such thing as a “typical day” in an infant classroom!  As your baby matures, we guide each child towards a more structured and organized schedule to provide consistent feeding and rest times.
