The Montessori Toddler Programs focus on key developmental areas namely: sensory and perpetual development, self-help skills, physical and motor skills, language acquisition and social and emotional growth. The Montessori Program provides the sense of security; nurturance and loving care that infants and toddlers need to thrive during this stage of intense learning. Since infants and toddlers are committed to achieving independence, the Directress/Teacher provides responsive individual attention as your child deals with positive experiences as well as frustrations. The curriculum takes advantage of the rapid growth of fine and gross motor skills at this stage of development.
The delight for the child is in the doing. While he is enthralled with each exercise, he is developing his concentration, his attention to detail and his coordination of movement. These exercises are the foundation on which the child approaches all other work.
A young child luxuriates in the abundance of practical life exercises because they enable him to function confidently and completely in the activities of his everyday life. The desire to imitate adults is satisfied with items especially scaled to his size.
The child is attracted to the things that give him independence and control of his life. Industriously, he sweeps, dusts, and polishes. There are exercises for washing, pouring, and gardening. He is able to methodically master all of the skills he needs for independence.
The Montessori curriculum inspires students to become independent learners who appreciate and understand their world. Integrated studies provide students with unique and age-appropriate materials that help them to become accountable for their use of time, for accuracy in their work and to evaluate their strengths and areas of growth. Our students have individualized work plans to allow them to use time effectively and to make appropriate choices. Students demonstrate great joy in their learning.
