Toddler Program

Developing Body Coordination and Personal Independence.

The education of a very small child does not aim at preparing him for school, but for life. -Dr. Maria Montessori


Our Montessori 18 to 33 Month Program supports the child’s age-appropriate ability to learn through hands-on experiences. Activities are encouraged that develop body coordination and personal independence. The Montessori 18 to 33 months’ curriculum supports the development of gross motor, verbal and social skills, along with teaching care of self and care of one’s environment.

Your Toddler’s Day in a Montessori Classroom

In a Montessori classroom (or environment), children lead their education under supervision of a Lead Guide and Assistant teacher. The children choose from a variety of age-appropriate works that are set out at their eye level. The teachers provide one on one instruction for each child when they’re presented the new lesson for the first time and then offer assistance when the child needs/wants help.

The child may choose to wash dishes, sweep or mop, clean windows, brush their hair, build puzzles, paint, glue, cut with scissors, or many other works within the classroom. Each classroom also has an outdoor environment where the children can play on playground equipment, ride tricycles, use a low balance beam, plant flowers, water plants, and many other activities.

The Montessori toddler schedule includes a multiple hour morning work cycle where the children have time to explore their indoor or outdoor environments and choose the works that are most appealing to them. They make and share a snack together in the morning and afternoon and come together for lunch as a group each day. The children help prepare their meals, set the tables, and clean up after the meal before preparing for their nap. They have several free playtime periods each day as well.
