MONTESSORI TODDLER PROGRAM
Our toddler program is designed for children who will turn 2 years old by December 1st of the year they enroll. We focus on children gaining independence and self confidence in a prepared environment designed to meet their developmental needs. We have a Half day option from 9:00-12:00pm or the Full Day option that runs from 9am-3pm.
Our toddler program focuses on respect for the child and developing self confidence. Through exploration and a strong focus on sensory experiences children gain independence and pride in themselves as they become active participants in their classroom environment.
The little child’s first movements were instinctive. Now, he acts consciously and voluntarily, and with this comes an awakening of his spirit…. Conscious will is a power which develops with use and activity. We must aim at cultivating the will…. Its development is a slow process that evolves through a continuous activity in relationship with the environment.
