Infant Connections Class Agenda
2018/2019 School Year
Sing with me: September 4, 2018
A great way to build language is through songs, finger-plays, and reading, even with young infants. Songs can be sung throughout the day for fun and often, can help in difficult transitions. We will join together to sing some of the songs that are sung in the classroom and talk about the importance of language development.
Explore with me: October 2, 2018
We will be covering one of the sensitive periods for this age: sensory perception. We will discuss how infants experience the world through their senses. We will be enjoying this class outside as we also talk about how beneficial outdoor exploration is to a child’s developing senses, even for the youngest infant.
Let’s get moving: November 6, 2018
Debatably, one of the most important sensitive periods for a young infant is movement. We will be discussing the relationship freedom of movement has to a child’s brain development. There will be plenty of opportunities to move around the classroom with your little one and explore the environment in a way that they do.
Bring it home- a sense of order: December 5, 2018
Have you ever wondered why a Montessori classroom looks the way it does? Well, this class may answer some of those questions as we discuss the importance of order in a young child’s life. We will talk about what is different about a Montessori infant environment and share some ideas that you can incorporate at home.
Read with me: January 8, 2019
Building a love for reading can start early. Join us for a night of sharing. We will share some of our favorite books to read with young children and invite you to bring some of your child’s favorites. Reading with a young child looks different than reading with an older child. We will talk about that difference and also how important it is to label (with language) everything in an infant’s world.
Learn with me: February 12, 2019
Infants absorb everything around them, especially language. Come learn why we introduce our little ones to Spanish and Sign Language early on.
Laugh with me: March 19, 2019
We will be discussing the importance of play for young infants. Parents will get a chance to share with the group, what makes their infant laugh and giggle. There will be songs and materials for exploration that inspire play and laughter.
Guest speaker – TBA: April 9, 2019
Splash with me: May 14, 2019
Come join the fun as we splash around on the infant playground. There will be plenty of water activities so bring a towel and water diaper. We will also have a swim coach join us and share some tips on water safety.
"My kids love Pines, the quality of teachers, the setting and the environment is what we were looking for."
We love our school! My two children are so happy here!
My son is excelling in so many ways!
The teachers are the best. They truly care for each student.
Our son started here this year in the Lower Elementary class as a first year student and he could not be happier.
The teachers are top notch and the environment, ranging from a huge open play space, to organic garden beds, to classrooms stocked with the best materials, is just fabulous.

We are so happy with the school, teachers, students and parent community.
Such a great school & teachers! Every parent I meet says the same thing.
My baby goes to Pines Montessori and I LOVE it so very much! All I have to do is ask her if she wants to go to school and she starts kicking her legs, laughing and smiling.
