Nido Program

“The greatness of the human personality begins at the hour of birth.”
– Maria Montessori

The Northside Montessori Nideo Parent Infant Program nurtures and stimulates infant development by fostering a sense of security, independence and confidence.

Our Nido sessions provide a safe forum for parents to meet and participate in discussions with an expert in child development, at the same time strengthening the bond with their child. Our Directress guides parents through sensitive years and provides insight on how to better meet the needs of their growing child. Topics of dicussion lead by our Directress include:

  • The parent as the ‘Observer’
  • Development of the will: eating, toileting, sleeping
  • Independence and freedom of movement
  • Brain and sensory development
  • Language enrichment
  • Fine and gross motor skills
  • Emotional intelligence and social relationships
  • Music and rhythm

With the foundation of Montessori philosophy, Nido sessions provide a positive atmosphere for learning, social interaction and a sense of belonging.


Each week parents and infants will participate in:

  • Weekly discussion topics
  • Infant massage to assist in relaxation and bonding
  • Infant-toddler yoga for relaxation, settling and tummy troubles
  • A ‘take-home’ activity to stimulate various areas in development
