NIDO - Montessori for Infants

Nido means nest in Italian, the perfect nurturing environment for infants ages 2 – 17 months

Maria Montessori created a philosophy of education that begins at birth, when infants’ minds are already busy absorbing their environment and learning about the world. As leaders in Montessori in Singapore we set about to create an infant program steeped in Montessori principles. 

From birth to (approximately) age six, your child’s brain works in a very different way than an adult’s does. At this age, their mind is like a sponge, soaking up huge amounts of information from their environment. They are absorbing everything around them, effortlessly, continuously, and indiscriminately. This is what Maria Montessori referred to as “the absorbent mind.” 

Montessori for Infants is about  

 

  • talking and responding to our babies
  • setting up a safe and stimulating environment for them 
  • nurturing their natural curiosity and drive for independent exploration
  • providing consistent and expert care for every step of their development  
A day in the life of your baby in our Nido

Routines provide infants with security. A day in the Nido is structured but considerate and customized to each child’s individual needs and development. Throughout the day there is time for discovery in the garden, manipulative play, sleeping, Montessori moments, stories and books, rhymes and song, and more.  

Routine care includes diaper changing and bathing. And, of course, lots of milk and food! We work with parents to introduce new flavors and textures at the appropriate time for each child. All of our food is fresh and healthy, with no added salt, sugar or flavorings. This structured, but individualized care allows each child to develop at their own pace and feel loved and secure in the environment.
