“Education begins at birth.”– Maria Montessori
Did you know that Alcuin offers a parent/infant class which meets one day week? We invite everyone to come and discover our Parent/Infant class. The Parent/Infant class, on Wednesdays from 9:00 to 10:30 a.m., gives parents the opportunity to observe and interact with their child in a rich Montessori environment in which both can explore and discover.
In the Parent/Infant class, children (ages birth to 18 months) can explore and develop social skills, concentration, coordination, and feel a sense of belonging to a group. It also gives parent and child a special time together — time that is all their own.
Led by Jamie Sloan, the class will provide helpful guidance and discussions on child development and how to incorporate the Montessori philosophy into the home. Grandparents and caregivers are welcome to attend in the place of parents.
According to Ms. Jamie, “We try to distill and honor each child’s natural tendencies toward healthy, authentic, growth and development. We learn to observe, wait, and trust in the child’s natural ability to self-create.”
