Child Care



(The NIDO Group)

Ages: 3months -15months

“Education starts from birth and is an aid to life”-Dr. Maria Montessori

“Adults admire their environment; they can remember it and think about it—but a child absorbs it. The things he sees are not just remembered; they form part of his soul. He incarnates in himself all in the world about him that his eyes see and his ears hear.” – Dr. Maria Montessori Educator, physician, philosopher

The above quotes encapsulate what we do in Cedars. In line with our vision, we strive to provide you and your baby with a happy, healthy and warm learning environment in which your child will thrive. We provide a variety of learning experiences throughout the day and follow the routine your child is comfortable with. We carefully consider the following eight characteristics guiding the childcare environment: Safety, Health, Comfort, Convenience, Child-size space, Flexibility, Movement and Choice.

Infants experience the following three key stages of development: Regardless of age, infants are searching for a sense of security, are drawn to exploration of their surroundings, and are carving out their own special identity. The caregiver-help to ensure that children require changes as they progress through the stages of infancy. It is important that the surrounding environment supports both the growing infants and the teachers who care for them.

Young or Immobile Infants (3-6months) thrive on the warmth and caring from a close relationship with caregivers. This security prompts young infants to explore and begin to shape their identity.

Mobile Infants (6-12 months) are more focused on exploration. Curious, the mobile infant learns to propel herself to explore the environment when she feels secure. Your child moves to toddler group at one year though we expect the child to have started walking before moving. See the inside cover of our Daily progress report for more details on their milestones.

Our infant schedule outlines what activities the children will be exposed to during their stay with us. However, the schedule is flexible and structured around the individual needs of each child.
