Abstract/Notes: After the physical growth that occurs in utero is complete, so begins the psychic development of the infant and toddler in the first 3 years of life. According to the American Sociological Association, culture is defined as "the languages, customs, beliefs, rules, arts, knowledge, and collective identities and memories developed by members of all social groups that make their social environments meaningful" (http://www.asanet.org). Some concrete examples of culture just happen to be a few things that infants and toddlers absolutely love: language, food, art, music, dance, and stories. In my years as an Infant & Toddler teacher, my task had been to create an appropriate environment for children living in a progressive university town in central New York.

Bilingualism

Abstract/Notes: This article describes the Language Center Montessori School in Chapel Hill, North Carolina, where students are learning in a language-immersion Montessori environment. The school offers a choice to parents--Spanish immersion or French immersion--but Montessori comes with both. The school's motivation for promoting bilingualism is to improve communication across cultural boundaries, and to promote peace, respect, and an appreciation of diversity. Though bilingualism may increase cognitive development, this is not the school's driving force. It wants to foster a generation of "cultural ambassadors" who can build bridges across cultures. It also wants to create a new generation of peacemakers who value tolerance, diversity, and hope, and who effect change at home and across borders.
