Our infant program is designed to offer a peaceful loving place where babies can explore and feel secure. Teachers speak in gentle tones and provide a comfortable and loving atmosphere to our babies. The environment is nurturing, stimulating, and soothing with plenty of hugs, cuddles, talking and listening. The décor is understated and homelike. Each child in our care is an individual to be nurtured with affection and respect. As is customary for Montessori environments, every detail is selected with the child’s whole development in mind. Our infant rooms welcome children as young as 10 weeks of age. Our prepared environments have developmentally appropriate material and activities that support the child through each stage of infant growth. Because we “follow the child,” we provide a variety of opportunities where they can explore based on their curiosity and mobility, not just their age.
Butterfly and Papillon’s program is tailored to provide a continuation in the care of children from late toddlerhood throughout preschool age. This program combines the social interaction of the infant room with the development of sensory skills. Early childhood is the most important time for exploration and discovery. The mental development of a child is at its most critical stage from birth through age six. At this stage a child’s mind can be described as a sponge absorbing knowledge from their environment and experience. Our program promotes social, physical, emotional, and cognitive growth through the use of Montessori materials in a prepared environment. Our dedicated teachers guide children as they explore a variety of Montessori activities in which they discover, explore, classify, organize, and develop skills essential to future academic and social success. Children progress at their own pace and in a way that will benefit them throughout their lives. In the Montessori classroom there are five areas.
