Nido (Baby to 2 1/2 years Playgroup )

sNido is an Italian word meaning "nest." The Nido is an environment that nurtures and protects the developing child. It is a place where children can calmly explore the Montessori environment, supported by the presence of the secure bond of the family. A parent/grandparent attends classes with their child, one or two mornings per week, becoming familiar with the routines and elements of the Montessori environment.

Nido is a prepared environment characterized by order, simplicity and beauty to meet the developmental needs of the child. Dr. Maria Montessori observed that children learn through movement and exploration of their surroundings. Through movement the child builds an internal map through which they orient themselves and connect with the world, as they develop in their independence through mastery of skills.

Learning about Montessori education with other like minded families is a wonderful experience. This experience also prepares children for an optimal transition to our Toddler Room at 2 1⁄2 years old, where children attend Montessori classes independently.
