We have had so many parents ask us about pertinent information or online resources regarding newborns and toddlers. In particular, we noticed that so many parents, coming from a wide variety of backgrounds within our community, had similar questions surrounding the care and development of their young children. These included questions about learning, feeding, toileting, social skills, talking, walking, exercise and others. We realized that there was a huge need for a new kind of class that focused, not just on the young child's development, but on the development of the caregiver's ability to provide and care for the child in the most advantageous way possible. A class where the child and caregiver could grow together in a learning environment that was nurturing, developmentally appropriate, and provided a positive educational and social experience for both the child and the caregiver.

We Are Pleased To Introduce The Nurture Center

The Nurture Center is an exciting new program we are offering at our Riverside Campus. This program is for infants (newborn) through 3-year old toddlers along with a parent, caregiver, nanny, grandparent or anyone who is providing care for a child. The Nurture Center’s program is specifically designed to assist parents and caregivers with developmentally appropriate activities for babies and toddlers. Our Infant and Toddler Coordinator, Jenna Dabney, MEd, will introduce children and adults to the developmentally appropriate practices and methods of teaching with carefully chosen materials.  Adults will bond with their children, network with other adults, explore Montessori materials, and collaborate on a variety of topics related to child development.

The program format will include:

• One (1) morning a week for six (6) weeks beginning October 2016 • 90-minute class, one (1) day a week • 0-36-month-old children in a carefully prepared classroom • Three  (3) 90-minute parent discussion groups • Led by an experienced, Montessori certified teacher

Open to dads, moms, grandparents and other caregivers

During the class children will explore in a nurturing environment, choose from the materials provided, and learn at their own pace.  Caregivers can watch their children’s exploration, observe their discoveries and come together for music, stories and a community snack. The parent discussion groups offer adults the ability to share ideas and questions about eating, sleeping, toileting, discipline, and many other topics.  The Nurture Center offers parents and caregivers an important opportunity to meet other parents for sharing and networking with one another.
