Parent Infant Classes


Parent - Infant Class

The DVMS Montessori Parent - Infant class serves as an introduction to parenting through the lens of Montessori philosophy. It is open to all parents, not just those with children already enrolled in DVMS. In a beautifully prepared space for children ages 2 months to 14 months children are able to explore activities with the guidance of a trained Assistant to Infancy.  Parents will learn how to watch and support development milestones and engage with their children using materials provided in the space. 

This course includes a weekly one and a half hour morning session for you and your baby as well as two parent education evenings. Printed parenting resource materials as well as book, furniture and toy suggestions will be available at each session.

Learning topics include:

  •  Montessori Philosophy

  • Designing a Child - Friendly Home

  • Aiding Independence

  • Weaning

  • Toileting

  • Healthy Sleep Habits

  • Language Development

  • Physical Development

  • Positive Discipline

  • Socialization

Our first session will run for 8 weeks beginning Thursday October 3 from 9am until 10:30am. Space is limited to 10 children and their caregiver. Our Fall session is completely booked. We will be opening a new session in January. Stay tuned.
