At the Montessori School of Corpus Christi, our Infant Program welcomes children - newborn through 18-months of age.
Our classroom is set up to embrace the Montessori philosophy that is child-centered and focused on nurturing the physical and social development of each child individually, at his or her own pace. We use individualized lessons and a carefully planned environment to attain these goals.
The caregivers who work consistently with our infants understand the importance of brain development at this early age. Through a combination of experience, traditional early-childhood education and Montessori certification, the Infant Program teachers work with our Curriculum Advisor to ensure that sensory, cognitive, language, social and cultural activities are integrated into your child's time spent with us.
We understand that choosing care for your infant can be difficult. We strive to make our parents feel comfortable with their choice of care by maintaining open daily lines of communication, respecting the individuality of each family and child by following parent-directed daily care schedules and by assessing and reporting the progress of our students as they each move toward independence and reaching their own incredible potential.
The infant class is 5 days a week.
During the first three years of life, a child’s brain absorbs more information from the environment than at any other part of his lifetime. Every sight, sound, touch, taste, and smell is taken in and processed. It is an amazing, wondrous period in a tiny, complete human being’s life.
The Montessori Toddler environment provides a safe, calm, carefully designed setting for optimal learning that nurtures the physical and spiritual being. Sensory, cognitive, language, social, and cultural activities address the natural tendencies of the child’s developmental process. Toilet training is part of the program. Even at this early stage, a child is soon able to make choices for his own independence.
Montessori Toddler educators are special caregivers. They embrace a child-centered philosophy that demands a respect for the child and support for all his incredible potential. Within the safety of the prepared environment and under the watchful observation and guidance of the Montessori caregiver, the child is free to explore his new world.
The toddler class can be 5 days or 3 days.
In the primary program the children truly make the environment their own choosing independently from activities that they have been shown by their teachers. Children in Montessori schools use scientifically designed materials to build their understanding of mathematics, language, and the works around them while they interact in mixed-age classrooms to develop the social skills, confidence, independence, responsibility, and a love for learning. Activities are typically hands on, tactile materials to teach concepts. These material help build a concrete understanding of basic concepts upon which much is built in the later years.
The primary program is divided into four main categories;
Other activities include art, music, science and geography.
The primary class can be 5 days or 3 days.
The classes are staffed by 1 Lead Teacher and either 1 or 2 assistants.
The Montessori School of Corpus Christi offers extended care to support our many working families from 2:30pm until 5:30pm Monday through Friday.
