If you haven’t had a chance to take a peek at our Infant Program in Rooms 3 & 4, you’re in for a treat! This lovely, peaceful classroom is adorned with natural materials, infant-sized furniture, inviting textures, and an unmistakeable home-like feel. Opportunities abound for students to practice new skills (like stair climbing!) and to foster curiosity in the world around them (through activities like bird watching!).
Ms. Meaghan Nichols, Infant Head Teacher, brings several years of Montessori leadership experience to our newest age group, along with her trademark humor, warmth and enthusiasm. We can’t think of anyone better suited to build a foundation of Montessori learning with students as young as 6 weeks of age. Our students and their families seem to agree!
I have been very pleased with The Growing Place Montessori so far. My daughter recently started in the infant program and my wife and I couldn’t be happier. My wife and I both work full-time so finding a preschool with a great infant program was a must. When I toured TGPM I was almost instantly sold. The room was very clean but didn’t look plain and sterile like most other classrooms. The room was filled with learning tools and structures for playing, and when the Montessori method was explained to me by the owner, Dilip, it made complete sense and I wished I had been brought up like that. My daughter was immediately taken with the teacher Ms. Meaghan, who has been great to work with. I’m amazed at how much my daughter has learned and how fast she is learning. She’s excited to go to school each day and is even sad when it’s time to leave for the day! I would highly recommend The Growing Place Montessori to any parent. It’s a great place for children to grow and become independent.

Our youngest students are busy, busy, busy! They may be small, but our infant students are learning to control their body movements, to communicate with others, to take care of their personal needs, and to express their feelings. There’s no better place to grow these skills than in a loving, prepared environment full of enticing materials just their size.
It’s nothing short of amazing to see how quickly our infant students move from being helpless and dependent to moving freely and mastering the challenges placed before them! To learn more about our infant program, plan a visit or read on.
