Lake Forest’s Premier MONTESSORI INFANT PROGRAM
Hillside Montessori offers one of the Lake Forest area’s premier Montessori infant programs. Designed for children ages 3–24 months, our Montessori-based program directly incorporates the philosophies developed by Dr. Maria Montessori. The core principle of providing quality caregiving for infants is based on the cultivation of a respectful and responsive relationship between the infant and caregiver. Caregivers at Hillside Montessori are trained to meet the needs of infants through sensitive, careful observation. When infant needs are met, they become confident and better able to problem-solve.
At Hillside Montessori, children are reared in an environment that encourages independence, coordination, and self-mastery. It is a loving and caring environment where children learn to share and care for one another from a young age.
Our Montessori Infant Care Practices
Hillside Montessori School utilizes new, progressive equipment in its Montessori infant care program. We provide a low infant-to-teacher ratio and some of the most competitive pricing in Orange County. By enrolling your infant in the program at Hillside Montessori, you are starting them down a path toward an enriching Montessori education. As they grow, they can participate in our toddler, preschool, and kindergarten programs to ensure the important Montessori principles we teach are instilled in them as they pursue their lifelong learning.
Our staff includes early childhood accredited teachers, CPR- and first aid-certified teachers who are dedicated to the safety and success of your child. We have a very diverse group of children at Hillside Montessori. Contact us today to schedule a tour of our campus and to meet our caregivers.
