Infants: The Nido
In our Nido you will see....
Floor mats on which babies can move freely and develop gross motor skills
Interesting mobiles, grasping objects, and rattles within reach.
Low bars mounted to the wall and soft furniture for children to pull themselves up.
Mirrors positioned close to the floor to stimulate tummy time and self discovery.
Words from Maria Montessori:
"The child has a different relation to his environment from ours... the child absorbs it. The things he sees are not just remembered; they form part of his soul. He incarnates in himself all in the world about him that his eyes see and his ears hear."
The Absorbent Mind, p. 56
Our Nido Community aids the child's natural development with rich language and free movement in a clam, cozy, and homelike environment.
Our classroom is designed entirely around the needs of your child.
A low rail anchored to the wall provides support as your child pulls himself up from the floor. A soft mat cushions falls. Custom floor beds allow your child to choose to sleep when tired. Infant size shelves display beautiful materials designed to stimulate your child’s senses. Teachers speak in gentle tones and the decor is understated and homelike.
Your child will feel right at home in an environment created just for him or her.
