The training of the teacher who is to help life is something far more than the learning of ideas. It includes the training of character; it is preparation of the spirit.
– Maria Montessori

The American Montessori Campus infant program is committed to promoting quality infant care for children from six weeks to 12 months, based on these key concepts:

  • The aim of the infant program is to foster the development of basic trust and to assist in the normal development of the personality.
  • Basic trust develops in an environment where people respond appropriately to the infant’s communication of needs to be loved, respected, and accepted.
  • Infants learn through their senses. They learn by watching and moving freely. Freedom to move is essential to the development of the infant’s potential.
  • The infant is considered as a whole person and is affected by the quality of holding and feeding, as well as the quality of physical care.
  • Learning, which leads to independence, occurs when infants participate in their daily routines of care.
  • Infants must be spoken to in the language with which they will communicate.
