Baby - Nido
6 Week Infant Program
Picasso Room – Our Nido for babies from 6 weeks to 14 months.
We engage with our youngest children in a way that is positive and nurturing since we know that this stage of development has long term impacts for the child as he grows.
Montessori said, “The child is truly a miraculous being, and this should be felt deeply by the educator”
We at Montessori Gold Coast know that caring for your baby is no simple matter. Dr. Montessori provided us with clear goals and guidelines which are implemented by our qualified, interested and focused team who use this to tailor a care plan for your child.
We carefully observe and listen and as we do we discover their interests and engage their thoughtfulness and creativity.
Our infant program addresses all these needs.
“The baby’s fundamental need – is to be loved". But it takes a mature person to love a baby, because love takes time, love takes patience, love takes fortitude, love even requires a certain kind of humility: to love another better than one’s self.
The baby needs time to be understood: he needs time in everything he does.”
I embraced the Montessori Method because I saw the long term benefits, and trained my staff to my personal expectations and now we deliver these and make them available to you!
We use and encourage our babies to use sign language throughout the day. This reduces the barrier non verbal communication can sometimes create.
The Baby's Needs
As the song says, the beginning is “a very good place to start!”
Can you tell I watched The Sound of Music last night? In thinking about this topic.
Doctor Maria Montessori went on to exhort parents to not to misunderstand Montessori thought as being a faddish status symbol, something to be gone at halfheartedly with the vague goal of speeding up a child’s intellectual development.
Though academic development is certainly an important part of the Montessori method, it is the baby’s emotional development that should be dearest to the hearts of mothers and fathers.
As they toddle toward our Monet room (for children 15months – 2yrs) your baby will have learned to care for his environment, identify his own personal items and be ready for the sensorial journey ahead!
The word ‘Nido’

The word ‘Nido’ s derived from the Italian word meaning ‘nest’ and it conveys the spirit of the infant environment. Our classrooms are comforting, warm and inviting with care being taken to provide nurturing, calm stimulation to enhance the development of the young child.

What Is The Child Care Benefit ?
Monday, 11 April 11 2016
Child Care Benefit is a payment from the Australian Government that helps you with the cost of your child care.
You can get CCB if you are a parent, foster parent or grandparent with a child in your care who is attending child care services approved by, or registered with, the Government. (Information sourced from the Queensland Government and Department of Human Services)
The Federal Government has set priority guidelines for the Child Care Benefit and the Child Care Rebate. The main priority for a place in a centre is for working parents, those seeking work, and students. This amount of childcare benefit depends on your joint gross weekly income, which is assessed through the Family Assistance Office (FAO). Families contact the FAO on 13 61 50.
