TODDLER PROGRAM:
  • The toddler in a Montessori classroom gains life skills to care for themselves and their environment, learns how to perfect their movements and how to work cooperatively with others.
  • Everything in the environment is proportionate to the child's size and is designed to appeal to the child's natural curiosity.
  • Teacher assists the children in separating from parents or caregiver and feeling secure in the classroom environment.
  •  
    They experience enrichment of vocabulary, develop concentration and understanding of sequence, order and task completion.
  • The classroom contains an orderly arrangement of self-correcting learning activities that invite the child to learn at their own pace with many opportunities for the child to be self-sufficient and successful.  We strive to meet these needs by providing security, guidance and affection.
