Infant / Toddler Community
Nido (2 months to 12/15 months)
Montessori Infant Community offers babies the Nido: an environment that is specially prepared for babies before they can walk. Parents and carers may join a Parent-Baby Class that gives them opportunities for involvement. It provides an environment in which they may interact with their child, with one another and/or with a Montessori trained adult who guides this interaction. The classes focus on how to observe the child and how to offer appropriate activities.
Toddler (12/15 months to 3 years)
Once children start walking, they may join the Toddler Group in which they develop basic motor coordination, independence and language skills. The Toddlers Classroom is not just a classroom. It is a nurturing environment where very young children for the first time experience structured contact with other children. The Toddler materials may look simple, but based on years of observation, experiment and study they are precisely designed.
Infant / Toddler environment
While designing our Infant / Toddler series of furniture some important factors have been considered. The furniture should serve the child’s independence and should allow the child to feel secure.
The Toddler materials may look simple, but they are precisely designed, based on years of observation, experiment and study. All materials support the child's need for purposeful activity.
A supportive environment
Gradually the children reveal qualities such as intense concentration, precise movement, a sense of order, self discipline and respect for others. The atmosphere is positive, supportive and non-competitive, which gives them an obvious joy in 'work'.
A child shapes himself
Continuing efforts by Nienhuis Montessori have produced an important broadening of our assortment of materials. Extensive research and consulting with experts in the field of early childhood learning has resulted in a unique range of materials. We continually are expanding this range with new, innovative, specialized products that perfectly suit the young children’s community.
