Infant (6 weeks – 12 Months)

Cypress Montessori School focuses on fostering basic trust, unconditional love and acceptance in the child. Primary goals during this stage include promoting good health and well- being, development of fine motor skills, development of gross motor skill and independence. Our loving teachers make sure to:

  • Provide infants with calming and stimulating experiences
  • Talk, sing, play and read to infants
  • Respond to infants if hungry by feeding, holding, and cuddling them
  • Give infants frequent “tummy time”
  • Play active games such as “patty cake,” “Peek-a-boo,” and fingerplays

Display courteousness, warmth, and sensitivity when interacting with adults and children
