Our toddler program is designed for children who are walking well (15-18 months) to 36 months. We offer children the opportunity to develop socially, emotionally, and cognitively through real-life interactions and carefully selected materials. Each child's daily life is organized, consistent, and secure in the toddler environment.
When the child develops trust and confidence in the environment, he or she learns to use the toilet and becomes independent. Observing and witnessing these signs of development in our toddler community guides allows us to respect the process in a harmonious manner and respect the child's development.
In each classroom environment, a Montessori-Certified Lead Guide has been trained in child development and guided instruction methods by the Association Montessori International. Through kindness, personal responsibility, exploration, and cooperation, our guides strive to foster a strong sense of community among themselves as well as with the children.
Children in the toddler classroom gain self-control, self-discipline, and a higher level of maturity academically and emotionally. The range of ages allows them to be both a follower and a leader.
In Montessori classes, students are given the freedom to explore and discover, which awakens their natural curiosity. The philosophy holds that all people are intelligent and that learning is a natural process.
The following subjects are addressed by toddlers: practical life, sensorial, language, and art. A toddler develops independence, concentration, coordination, and a sense of order by participating in music and language. Social skills are a major part of their development. Identifying and expressing their feelings appropriately is very important to the children.
In the practical life areas, children are encouraged to take responsibility for their own toys and tools. This helps them to become more self-sufficient and strengthens independence. Through activities such as “container play” and sorting exercises, youngsters develop their fine motor skills as well as increasing concentration, coordination, and a feeling of organization. Montessori Guides can also assist in fostering competence with their guidance, further boosting a sense of confidence. Satisfaction is generated from the knowledge that they are capable of achieving success and this spurs children on to maintain great motivation.
Social skills are a vital aspect of a toddler's development. We focus on assisting young children in becoming aware of and expressing their feelings appropriately. Interacting with friends and taking part in group projects enable them to understand how to work together, collaborate, and create lasting friendships. Having these abilities form the basis for creating positive experiences throughout life. Furthermore, socialization further aids pre-schoolers in developing language; they learn new words daily! Our Guides provide a safe haven where toddlers can flourish, build relationships, and better manage their emotions.
