  • 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.
