Montessori Toddler Program

Building on the foundation of our infant program, we believe that the child has an innate desire to learn and their education should begin early so all children being to form their identity and realize their unique potential.

Toddler program provides Montessori education for children 18 months to 3 years old.

Montessori ToddlerFully certified Montessori teachers staff the toddler program and welcome children between 7:30 a.m. and 5:30 p.m.

The Toddler Curriculum is based on four developmental areas: sensory and perceptual, physical and motor, self-help skills, and social/emotional development.

The Toddler Curriculum is based on four developmental areas: sensory and perceptual, physical and motor, self-help skills, and social/emotional development.

Sensory and perceptual
• Specifically designed materials help children become aware of themselves and the world around them

• Stimulation of the five senses aids cognitive development
Physical and motor
• The classroom is safe, nurturing and allows for freedom of movement so that children may explore their surroundings
• Teachers are responsive to children’s needs and adapt their pace to the children
• Activities that encourage small and large muscle movement, fine motor skills, and coordination are part of the daily routine.

Self-help skills
• Activities like pouring, opening and closing, scooping and stringing help children develop skills they will use in real life
• The classroom is rich in language. Children are taught to use their words.

Social/emotional development
• Group activities help children bond with adults and peers by forming friendships and working and playing together
• Toddlers learn to demonstrate empathy for one another and learn the dynamics and expectations of working with others

Once enrolled many parents love the organized Montessori method and begin to imitate and create that environment at home. We work closely with parents and advise them how to handle issues with their children the same we do it at school.

Children benefit form getting a clear and consistent message from teachers and parents.
