Infant Community (IC 1.5- 3years old)
Children experience a transitional environment from home to a small social community. In the classroom, we have suitable sized tables, chairs, cupboards and sinks, most importantly we have the materials to stimulate the cognitive development in a child. Through the guidance of our professional teachers,children learn at their own individual pace and according to their own choice oi activities.
After enrolment, children possibly will learn to put on and take off their shoes and coats,have meals, drink water, and comb hair by themselves. Physically that will develop the child's ability of eye-hand coordination, body balance and movement control; it will also give children the opportunity to develop responsibility and to make use of his/her willpower, intelligence and emotion.
In a Montessori classroom, the children decide which task to attempt and carry it out step by step and repeat the task again and again.
