Ages 8 weeks to 18 months
From the moment infants are born, they begin learning and observing the world around them. They respond to touch, sound, light, taste and smell. That learning continues every day through each experience. At Clever Oaks, our Infant Room is a caring and nurturing environment that is small, warm, safe and comforting for the infant. The daily schedule in the infant environment is tailored specifically to the needs of the infant, ensuring that we respond to each child’s needs while fostering their curiosity.
Dr. Maria Montessori says, “Our work as adults does not consist in teaching, but in helping the infant mind in its work of development.” Each child is respected as an individual and our program provides a safe and reassuring beginning. As a result, the child is a joyful and confident learner, and is happy to explore and practice new skills.
