Now Enrolling Ages Six Weeks - Three Years Old
When you tour our Infant Toddler Community in Creve Coeur, you will quickly recognize that the Montessori approach is about self-mastery. You will see children at ease, purposeful, curious, and confident. Our certified Montessori teachers who care for them are loving and respectful of each child's individuality.
Like all Hope Montessori Academy schools, the Infant-Toddler Community classrooms and play areas are designed to feel more like home than a classroom. Nowhere is this more evident than in the infant area where our smallest children are allowed to play, stretch, grab and explore on specially radiant heated floors.
A Montessori education is preparation for life. Our work supplements the parent's work in helping the children develop self-calming, self-control and self-confidence. Instead of looking at the child's behavior as what they are, we look at who the child may become. Optimism, positive attitudes, and hope for the future are essential to the success of children and our culture.
The Infant-Toddler Community is located off North Mason Road on a hill just above, and adjacent to the Hope Montessori Creve Coeur preschool. The school is designed to serve infants as young as 6 weeks and toddlers to the age of 3 years.

Our program is based on the toddler need for activity and independence. It is always changing based on the individual needs of our children.

Playground activity is scheduled by age and is monitored by faculty and staff at all times. Outdoor play is encouraged whenever the weather permits.
Low ratio of teachers to students in the classroom meets state standards. Our Infant Rooms exceed state standards by having a ratio of 1:3.
