Pre-Primary - Toddler Program - 1 to 3 Years

To Aid life, leaving it free, however, to unfold itself, that is the basic task of the educator.”

-Dr. Maria Montessori

The Toddler classroom is a specially prepared environment designed to systematically stimulate the senses and awaken curiosity. In the Toddler classroom, the children will discover beautiful lessons and materials arranged on shelves just waiting to be explored.

Each day our teachers provide rich experiences which support the burgeoning language and motor skills through lesson presentations, musical expression and movement, rich literature, and outdoor activities.

Children in the Toddler program arrive between 7:45 and 8:30 each morning and spend their day interacting with other children, being engaged by their teachers, and working with developmentally appropriate materials within a prepared environment.

A daily log of individually presented lessons will be tracked and reported for the parents via email.
