Montessori Program for Infants and Toddlers

Children ages 6 weeks to 12 months are part of the Infant Program. This is a period of great activity in your child’s development cycle. One of our primary goals is the development of movement and of independence.  The environment we have designed is made to support and respond to the infants’ basic needs for independence, exploration and building of trust and self-esteem…   (972) 745-1500

At Riverchase Montessori we are aware of the ability infants have of absorbing from their surroundings. The daily needs such as diapering, feeding and playing are optimal times for interaction.  Using these times for social learning experiences encourages full participation of the infant and the caregiver. These times become the opportunity for communication and for nurturing.

The infants’ curriculum is based on Physical and Motor Development:  Infants have a sensitive period for movement. Gross motor skills develop rapidly from three months to three years.  By providing the appropriate movement opportunities and maintaining a safe environment that does not restrict the exploration for the infants in the room, motor development is allowed to unfold naturally and at the infants’ own pace.

  • Language Development: Infants absorb languages from birth through six years of age.  Therefore, the language spoken by the caregivers all day, as well as the songs they hear, vocabulary of association of objects and their names and the language of affection and love contributes to this phenomenal development of learning to speak.
  • Self-Help Skills:   Infants are considered to be initiators, explorers and self-learners.  The caregivers are observers sensitive and available when direct help is needed from an infant, but not so intrusive while the infant solves his/her own body control difficulties.  Infants are encouraged and allowed to solve the problem and to reach their goals by themselves, instead of having this opportunity taken away from them by a well-meaning adult.
  • Daily Report:   A daily report is given to parents in order to inform you of the different activities your child participated in, as well as the daily schedule they followed.  This is a way to keep you involved in the daily development of your child.  A schedule assigned by the parent is initially followed until the infant is ready to incorporate to the schedule of the group.

All meals, including breakfast, lunch and three snacks, are cooked and served at school daily as part of your monthly tuition. However, infants ages 6 weeks to 12 months are fed only and strictly what parents recommend.

Extracurricular activities are also part of your tuition: Multi-sensory Gym for Infants and Toddlers on daily basis, Music for Motor Development, Rhymes and Songs.

Dr. Maria Montessori, an Italian medical doctor and educator, developed a method of education with a philosophy based on the natural development of the senses in children. She was able to combine her medical background and educational knowledge to establish what we now refer to as “The Four Planes of Education”.

Dr. Montessori saw education as an aid to life. Through carefully planned initial exercises, the child experiences success in his/her efforts, and thus acquires a sense of security and confidence as an independent learner. The chief objective of the Montessori philosophy is to introduce children to the joy of learning at an early age, and to provide a framework in which intellectual and social discipline can go hand-in-hand in the child’s development.

Looking for a great Day Care in Coppell?   Our computer Lab has 12 computers that will accommodate 12 children at one time.  We believe that children should develop their senses and it is through their senses that they perceive before they can conceive.  Therefore, the very same concepts the children use in the classroom, such as discrimination of color, size and shape, phonetic approaches towards reading and preparation for writing will take place during their daily time in the computer lab.  Critical Thinking will develop gradually as children increase their level of difficulty in their computer work.  The computer lab is for children ages 3 and older.
