Infant Philosophy of Peaceful Heights Montessori School and Child Care
The Infant Toddler Education Program is a formal curriculum. It offers nurturance, support, security, predictability, focus, encouragement and individual expansion to support cognitive development. Young infants begin to learn from their immediate surroundings. The sense of well-being and security is conveyed by our loving and skilled caregivers. Before infants can creep and crawl they are provided sensory experiences and encouraged to move and play.Mobile Infants are given the opportunity to be persistent and purposeful, creating new skills within safe boundaries. Our skilled caregivers share the child’s delight and discoveries in themselves.
Loving teachers provide a warm, safe and comfortable environment for the infant to explore and master. Emotional consistency helps the infant to develop self-confidence, explore communication and develop physical, cognitive and social skills.Infants establish patterns of sleeping, eating, playing, moving and interacting with peers. Infants are supported by developing stability in routines. The details of the day are related to the parents through the use of daily reports which include such things as: sleeping schedule, eating habits, diapering routines and quality of their day. The environment/routines are the heart of infant care and a major part of their curriculum;
Cognitive and language skills – using sensory objects, doing art projects and learning some sign languageSecurity/comfort – making sure each child feels safe and happySense of order – having a daily routines that the child establishes him/her selfIndependence – allowing infants to be able to explore the room freely surrounded by child size furniture.
