For children 18 months to 3 years, the toddler program provides a nurturing environment for early development. Class time is from 8:00 a.m. to 3:00pm. Toddler families may choose to send their child for the morning session only 8:00 - 11:30AM or all day. AM extended care is available starting at 7:30AM and for those that enroll in our full day option, PM extended care is available from 3:00 - 6:00pm.
Children are gently introduced to Montessori materials. The many activities, and hands-on materials, not only promote learning but also make it fun. Practical life activities help children develop organizational, fine-motor and large-motor skills while sensorial exercises help fine-tune their senses of hearing, sight, touch, and smell.
The toddler program brings language to life with singing, creative dramatics, and children’s literature. The wide variety of colorful Montessori math materials helps children learn the concepts of number, symbols, and geometry.
Of course, there is always plenty of free play, so children can exercise and socialize.
