Lawrence Montessori School offers a premier infant program in Lawrence. The Montessori Nido (“nest” in Italian) environment is a clean, bright, cozy, and safe environment designed specifically for infants three months to age and up to one year old and walking independently. Infancy is a time of accelerated physical and cognitive development and our teachers are careful to attend to the individual needs of each infant. Each child is lovingly cared for as our staff provides many opportunities throughout the day for motor, language and cognitive development. Per state guidelines, all our teachers are safe sleep and pediatric CPR and first aid certified.
At Lawrence Montessori School, we observe, guide and nurture each infant lovingly and communicate with the parents daily on the child’s growth and development. Each child follows an individualized schedule. Some children nap while others are awake and happily engaged in activities. There is no “by the clock” activity, nap or eating routine for our infants except what is requested by the parents. Each child is nurtured at her/his pace of development as we follow the child. We also have an attached outdoor play space exclusively for infant use.
Our Nido environment is especially designed to meet the needs of growing infants. We have created a cozy and inviting environment to support the developmentof the infant by providing ample opportunities for movement, language, independence and cognition in a social setting.
