Michigan Montessori Children’s Academy’s Infant Community provides an environment specifically suited to the developmental needs of very young children to become more self-sufficient and capable by following the directives of Dr. Montessori’s philosophy. Dr. Montessori had a special vision for the very young child, and we manifest this in our Infant Community program.
Here children 6 weeks to 1 ½ years learn to interact with one another and their environment in an atmosphere of loving support and respect. Materials and equipment are especially designed to help little muscles develop coordination, helping the child gain independence and self-esteem. Special attention is given to the development of expressive and comprehensive language skills. Parents are given ample opportunities for individual and group instruction during this exciting time of accelerated growth.

“No one can be free unless he is independent. Little children, from the moment they are weaned, are making their way toward independence.”
