“absorb” learning from her environment quickly and easily without conscious effort."
Toddlers love the nurturing extension of home while attending our program. Independence, self-confidence, self-esteem, creativity and language development are fostered in a caring, fun, and educational environment. Full day and half-day programs are available.
We have two toddler classrooms, Our Nest and The Garden, for children ages 15 months to 3 years old. The program options for this age group are:
Morning (8:30 a.m. – 12:00 p.m.)
Full Day (9:00 a.m. – 3:30 p.m.)
Both 3 day and 5 day programs are available. Before-school care starting at 7:30 a.m. and after-school care continuing until 6:00 p.m. is available to enrolled students. Hot lunch and healthy snacks are included in both programs.
Children enjoy a nurturing and stimulating environment as they take their first tentative steps away from home. Children are free to play, learn, and explore at their own pace. Teachers support their natural curiosity by offering materials, asking questions, and encouraging exploration. The Montessori curriculum for these ages is designed to:
Foster independence and self-confidence through hands-on materials
Build self-esteem through practical life activities such as hand washing, simple food preparation, and caring for plants.
Build vocabulary through conversation, vocabulary cards and objects, sound games, labeling, and classification materials.
Encourage creativity, verbal skills and focus through color matching, block play, and art projects.
Children’s natural developmental stages are addressed through the following activities:
Language: Children are encouraged to talk with friends and express themselves verbally through stories and songs, as well as social interaction at lunch and snack time.
Motor Skills: Large group time each morning includes songs and movement exercises that engage the child’s brain and body. Playground time, part of our day in all kinds of weather, gives children a chance to develop both motor and social skills – and have fun!
Toilet Learning: Familiarity with the bathroom and proper toileting skills are introduced at this age.
