Infant Community for ages 15 months-3 years

 

Little children benefit from growing in small groups and our Community feels like a cozy home where children enjoy personalized attention by our friendly and well-qualified teachers.

Our Community is a safe place for exploration, place where the child has a freedom to move without barriers or fear of being told to stop. As the child explores prepared environment he satisfies his natural curiosity, begins to build a sense of confidence in his ability to discover the world and do things.

The following areas of exploration are included in our program:

 

Practical life activities

Practical life activities offer the children active participation and collaboration in the aspects of care of self and care of the environment.

          

 

Language 

 

The child is fully immersed in an English language environment - all the activites the child engages in become a language lesson, because the child absorbs the language he hears. 

 
 
Fine Motor skills (eye-hand coordination) area 
 
Coordination of hand movements is essential for building intelligence. Maria Montessori called the hand of the child “the second brain”. 
 
 
 
 

 

Movement
 

In the movement area the children learn how their bodies work.

The more the child moves, the more connections neurons make in the brain, so movement makes your child smarter!

 

 
 
 
Music/art 
Art and music help to integrate both parts of the brain.
 

We offer Kindermusik Music&Me classes as a part of our Montessori classroom. This program encompasses instrument and vocal play, dance, rhyme, storytime and more, to boost the early language and literacy, pre-math, and social and emotional skills young children need. This feature is unique to daycares in Finland.
