Our Parent Infant Community begins a baby’s education by providing guidance and support for parents.

Enjoy sacred time for one-on-one bonding and exploring with your child. Connect with other parents. Our Parent Infant Group is set in a safe and beautiful environment prepared just for you and your child. Each session is facilitated by a Montessori-trained teacher, who serves as a guide and model for parents and infants as they explore the environment.

(Due to COVID-19, our Parent Infant Class will be virtual this fall.)
