Infant Toddler Program
Our Infant Toddler Program is a wonderful way to introduce children to Montessori concepts and to allow a gentle transition to the school environment. Sessions are held offsite, at 13 Fifty Road, Balidivis.
The sessions are run by our fully qualified coordinator, who brings with her a wealth of life experience. She greets each child personally with a handshake at their level and bids them farewell at the end of the session.
The shelves have Montessori equipment, puzzles, arts & crafts and Practical Life trays arranged carefully upon them to provide a beautiful prepared environment. Parents attend with their one to three year olds, helping them to master the work they have chosen. Independence is encouraged and children of different ages may work together, learning from one another.
There is a ‘bring and share’ morning tea, where children bring a piece of fruit to share. The children collect and set out their own placemats, glasses and plates at communal tables. Children are encouraged to serve themselves with child-sized tongs and pour their own water from child-sized jugs. The table is decorated by flowers in vases, collected and arranged by one of the children.
Children then wash up their own dishes and go out to play. After a time they return inside for a story, singing, musical instruments and free style dancing. It is very much a fun morning and the children enjoy themselves immensely.
