Course Description

There is an important difference between traditional daycare and Montessori Infant/Toddler programs: Daycares were formed to watch children, whereas Nidos* were created to educate children and their families while supporting overall development. The education you receive from this course will aide you in providing a supportive, educational environment and care for infants and toddlers.

*Nidos is the term Montessori used for the Assistants to Infancy course.

Great for: administrators, assistants or those seeking to be assistants, parents who wish to know how to better support their child’s natural development
