Parent-Child Program: BHMS Beginnings

Register  Here!

BHMS Beginnings is a program for parents and infants, aged 3-30 months. The infant-parent class is a wonderful opportunity for parents to connect with other parents, receive useful information from a trained Montessori Guide and sharpen their parenting skills. It also provides children an opportunity to experience the Montessori setting, discover new friends and engage with their parents in a totally new environment. The goal of this program is more than routine childcare; it is for parents to relax and enjoy these early months with their babies.

Each class will be held in a carefully prepared Montessori environment designed for the specific age group with age appropriate materials. The setting will be peaceful, serene and relaxing.

Each meeting will include parents’ observations, children’s exploration, individual work, group snack, topic share, group discussion, and a question and answer period. Below are topics of interest to be covered in class:

Play and self expression
Communication and cues
Gross motor skills
Fine motor skills
Home environment
Healthy sleep habits
Infant feeding
Diapering and toileting
