Montessori Infant Community

The main hall at the Contact Centre provides 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:

  • 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.

The child’s conquest of independence begins with his first introduction to life.
