Northstar Montessori Infant and Toddler Program

Two Northstar Montessori East students plays with a star sorting activity.

Our infant and toddler classes are designed to introduce students to the basics of preschool. This is often the first experience away from their Mommy and Daddy for these children, so we keep our ratios low so the children get lots of attention. Our infant and toddler classes are for children over the age of 6 weeks and under the age of 3 on the first day of school.

Our teacher to student ratios for this class are kept below the state guideline of 1:4, in order to give the children the individual attention they need.

Children in this class do not need to be potty trained.
