Infants & Toddlers:
iGrow Montessori has structured all programs by keeping in mind the different stages of growth in order to fulfill the needs of each child at a certain age. Thus ensuring that all requirements and needs of the child are considered. Each program offers a selection of Montessori materials complemented by academic curriculum. It is in each of these programs that teachers are very much aware of not only the physical needs of each child, but also the formation of their character, emotional, and intellectual development.
|Infants (6 Weeks - 11 Months)||Toddlers (12 months - 23 months)|
Our infant program aids children from the age group 6 weeks to 11 months. The program for infants is designed to satisfy an infant’s needs to grow and develop to their fullest potential. We incorporate flexible plan that allows each child to eat, sleep and play according to their schedule.
Our safe and spacious classroom provides freedom of movement, allowing the child to move freely and explore the environment. The room is decorated tastefully with mobiles, educational toys, books to further develop their visual, auditory and tactile senses.
Cleanliness and hygiene is a vital in infant classroom. All the toys and equipment are disinfected every day to prevent the spread of germs. The food provided will be refrigerated and then warmed up in the microwave, before feeding, depending on parent advice.
Our caregivers provide the child with loving care, instilling trust, security and providing comfort to the child and develop a strong bond with each other. As our infant curriculum is based on development on motors skills, the caregivers engage the child with various gross motor skill activities, songs, finger plays and outdoor experience. Caregivers interact with the child through educational material and toys to stimulate the development of speech and to learn new vocabulary. Monitoring the child’s schedule and communicating their accomplishments, tendencies, and concerns is the daily routine of the caregiver. We will share our thought with parents and together we can work together to provide the best program for your child.
Our toddler program aids children from the age group 12 months to 23 months. Everything in the classroom is proportionate to the child's size and is designed to be safe and aesthetically pleasing for children. Our goal for the toddlers is to capture their interest and cater to the need for order, movement and language. The environment is prepared to invite the child to participate in various activities:
