In the Toddler Classroom, the student, teacher, and the environment come together to create a space for learning. This space is nurturing, supporting, peaceful and encourages children’s natural wonder and curiosity. Everyday routines promote independence, social, emotional, physical and cognitive development.
- 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.
Activities and routines encourage development in the following areas:
- Care of Self
- Care of the Environment
- Fine and Gross Motor Skills
- Social Skills
“From the earliest days of life, the youngest among us are accorded with measures of commitment and esteem that echo our deepest understanding of respect.”Maria Montessori
