Parent/Infant Program

School in the Woods Montessori Parent/Infant Program engages families with children from birth to 18 months. The Parent/Infant Community provides a warm, nurturing, and stimulating environment that allows young children and their parents to learn together in a Montessori setting. Designed to meet the developmental needs of infants, the program encourages exploration and learning. It also supports new parents and families as they embark on this new stage of their lives – being a parent!


One day a week, parents and infants attend a 90-minute class together. The role of the parent during the class is to observe, support, and encourage their child’s natural development. The weekly class gives parents a unique opportunity to actively observe their child’s developing skills. The teacher serves as a guide and model for parents and children as they explore the environment and their relationships with others.


One evening a week, parents attend a 90-minute discussion session facilitated by the Parent/Infant program teachers. The adults-only evening sessions provide parents with an opportunity to learn more about the Montessori approach, discuss common parenting topics, and share questions and observations from the weekly class and family life.


The Parent/Infant program meets twice a week, including a parent/child session and a parent-only session. Each session is 90 minutes.
