IC1 walking to two years old
IC2 two to 3 1/2 years old
The Infant Community is best described by Maria Montessori's quote"Never give the mind more than you give to the hand." IC1 primarily focuses on introducing the child to the five concepts of learning; Care of Self, Care of the Environment, Language, Art, and Developmental Aids.
Infant Community 2 is best described as "help me do it my self". It refines the skills and knowledge of the five concepts of learning introduced in IC1.
Infant Community teachers know that each child is a special individual full of potential. In addition, Potty training is introduced in IC1 and 2, and must be mastered before moving to Primary. Each child's experiences away from home are carefully constructed, and children are nurtured and empowered.
