Nurturing children's mind from 6 weeks to 6 years old
At Lakewood Montessori, we strive to ensure that your child is able to expand their mind and interests to their utmost capabilities. They are welcome to choose Montessori work, do art and crafts, participate in music and movement programs, science, geography, manipulation, and blocks activities. If you want your child to participate in these extracurricular activities, please contact our main office. These activities are open to children who are not enrolled in the full day program.
Lakewood Montessori's education programs continue through the summer. Our Summer Program offers children the opportunity to continue investigations undertaken during the academic year, and also partake in informal play.
Your child will spend part of their day working with Montessori materials, but the remainder will be composed of activities like drama, arts and crafts, gardening, geography, cooking, and a number of other fun options.
• Log your baby’s feeding, sleeping, diapering, and learning activities
• Provide a biannual assessment of your baby using developmental checklists
• Interact with infants through games, stories, songs etc.
• Allow infants a fair amount of tummy and floor time
• Allow infants outdoor time (if weather allows)
• Gloves worn at all times and excessive hand washing is routine
• Sanitize highchairs and changing tables after each use
• Remove infants from cribs if they are not sleeping
