Infant & Caregiver – Montessori Mornings
Research shows that around 80% of our brain is developed in the first three years of life, making those early years an important time for building a strong foundation for life. Dr. Montessori understood this over 100 years ago, and created a scientific approach to serving children’s optimal development from infancy to adulthood.
Montessori Mornings (MM) is a guided and immersive family education experience for infants 6 weeks to 18 months of age* and their parent or caregiver. Families will learn to incorporate Montessori philosophy into the home environment and parenting practices.
Cohorts are offered over 9 weeks in the fall and spring (Fall: Sept-Nov, Spring: Mar-May). Sessions are held Thursdays and Fridays from 8:30-10:00 at our Hampton Cove campus in the upstairs infant room.
Families interested in joining MM should start by filling out the Contact Form. Due to very limited availability in each cohort, applicants will be placed in a waiting pool. Tuition is $450 for 18 classes over 9 weeks, which includes the $150 nonrefundable and nontransferable deposit required upon acceptance into the program. A payable invoice will be sent within 48 hours of admittance and is due upon receipt to secure your family’s spot. Remaining fees are due August 1 for fall participants and February 1 for spring participants.

Hear from some of our past participants:
“Our family was lucky enough to experience Montessori Mornings with both of our children before they started in the toddler class. It was such a warm and welcoming environment to get to know the Montessori method and observe as our children interacted with each other, other adults, and the prepared environment. Besides the educational value for the parents, it provided a seamless transition into the toddler class. Lacey has such a laid back, respectful approach to caregiving—she is a pleasure to learn from and be around. I’d recommend Montessori Mornings to any caregiver in the infant stage of life!” – E. R.
“Montessori Mornings was such a beautiful experience for our family! We have been a ‘Montessori family’ for a long time, but the program opened us up to new ideas and insights for our third child. Lacey is a brilliant instructor, and the infant/caregiver community was wonderful to be a part of. I highly recommend this program to anyone interested in expanding their approach to attuned, respectful parenting.” – J. S.
