Infant

Montessori International’s infant program is for children from six weeks to 18 months old. It is based on the concepts of fostering the development of basic trust and to assist in the normal development of personality. Being in an environment where the need to be loved, respected and accepted are appropriately responded to, infants are given the freedom to learn through their senses.
