Our Montessori Infant Community welcomes children from 14 to 36 months. We run sessions on Mondays, Tuesdays and Thursdays during term time from 9.30 – 12.00.

It takes place in the main hall at the Contact Centre, Hambalt Road, SW4 9EH. We provide an attractive and appealing environment which is carefully prepared to aid development and to promote independence within a calm and ordered space.

The equipment and resources are scaled-down so as to be easily used and manipulated by small pairs of hands; the children are able to select the activities which appeal to them from easily-accessible open shelving.

Useful Information

Please bring the following with you on your child’s first day at the Infant Community (not necessary for the open session!):

  • A full set of spare clothes, clearly labelled, in a labelled bag
  • Extra clothing for the ‘bottom half’, which is more likely to need changing.
  • Nappies and wipes, or extra pants, as appropriate.
  • A pair of labelled comfortable indoor shoes.  These should be of a kind that your child can put on and take off by her/himself.  Crocs plimsolls and slippers with adjustable Velcro straps are popular choices
  • If your child has any special dietary requirements/food allergies, please provide a list of foods to avoid.
