Allen Montessori School
Our “Casa de Bambini” program, designed for children 12-20
months, is based on the observation that while children may be small in
stature, they have enormous mental ability and are eager to tap into it.
The Montessori School’s Infant Program stresses the importance of freedom of movement—the infants are free
to move and stretch without restriction. Movement helps the infants become
more aware of their bodies, and they are able to develop coordination
and dexterity without inhibition.
You will notice that our infant classroom contains no “play pens”.
We take great care in creating a “whole room play area” which
enables the infant to explore a number of materials, textures, and objects
for tactile and visual stimulation. Language development is also an integral
part of the Casa De Bambini program. A teacher’s role is to consciously
introduce language through the use of words, inflection, tone and body language.
We understand that many of the strongest, deepest and lasting impressions
a child has are formed early on in their development. We are committed
to making your child’s first experience one that is characterized
by warmth, love, and care.
