TODDLER PROGRAM

Ages 18 months to 3 years

The Toddler program is designed to give each child a positive first school experience and to expand his world beyond the home. The materials and activities in the class satisfy the children's natural curiosity, sense of order and desire for independence as they learn and explore through their senses. The children are given freedom of choice and movement in a safe and nurturing environment within clearly defined limits.

Our primary goal is that our toddlers feel safe and happy and that we are meeting their physical, emotional, social and intellectual needs. The Montessori teachers are there to love them, guide them and support their efforts at mastering their environment, thus building their confidence and independence. This program is designed for children ages 18 months - 3 years. Children do not have to be potty-trained. There are three toddler groups with a child-to-teacher ratio of 5:1.

"Little he cares for the knowledge of others; he wants to acquire knowledge of his own...to experience the world through his own unaided efforts."
