Infant/Toddler Program ( 0 - 3 Years )

The first two years of life are the most important. Observations prove that small children are endowed with special psychic powers, and point to new ways of drawing them out, "literally educating by cooperating with nature." So here begins the new path, wherein it will not be the professor who teaches the child but the child who teaches the professor - Dr. Maria Montessori

Note: Infant-Toddler students without Montessori Early Childhood training from a MACTE accredited training center must complete the Early Childhood Overview course components, which are available online. Students can enter into the course in September, or January by completing Philosophy/Child Development and portions of the Toddler Pedagogy online. Students are required to complete the course through in-residence participation at our Omaha campus. Students or staff who determine students have not successfully completed the online components will be required to attend the make-up sessions during the summer, in-residence. Students may seek undergraduate credits from Metropolitan Community College, Omaha, NE.
