The way of love in the Beginners Nest
The Beginners Nest is a very special space designed with the needs of the youngest in our community in mind. Our program is for children who are comfortably walking to age three, in a small and intimate group. The environment provides opportunities to support a young child’s developing independence, concentration and language skills. It offers the best beginning for infants and toddlers, giving them the opportunity to grow in independence and confidence.
Through interacting with the environment and other children, under the guidance of the Directress your child will grow in confidence and their potential begin to unfold. A preparation program, the Beginners Nest also gives your child a gentle introduction to Montessori before moving into the preschool Garden Room at Little Sweethearts Montessori. Meeting the needs of individual children, the Beginners Nest also offers a calm, secure environment where your child’s sense of order, desire to be independent and to help is acknowledged.
Our Montessori Beginners Nest program for children aged 1-3 years runs every day from 7.45-5.15pm. We look forward to showing you around and talking to you about your child’s needs and how the Montessori way at Little Sweethearts Montessori can support your family choices in a small, safe environment.
We hope you have enjoyed finding out about our program for children aged 12 months to three years. Please see our enclosed sheet for more details.
