Beginner 2 Year Olds
The Montessori toddler community offers children 2 to 3 years old opportunities to explore their own capabilities and to develop independence within a supportive environment. Our Montessori toddler community provides a nurturing place for young children to begin their ‘education for life’.
The toddler environment is a space designed for the developmental needs of this age group from the size of the furniture, and activities provided, to the emotional support and guidance given. The toddler classroom is set up very much like a ‘home away from home’ with distinct areas like food preparation, changing clothes, toileting, group activities, individual activities and quiet moments.
A lead teacher and an assistant provide the love, patience and respect necessary for the toddler to feel safe and thrive within this community. The teacher is a Montessori trained professional, accomplished in recognizing and nurturing the specific developmental needs of this unique phase. Our youngest children can learn and grow individually, while also participating in cooperative group play and lessons with other children.
For the children enrolled in our toddler community, each day presents and opportunity for strengthening language skills, refining gross motor skills, developing fine motor skills and encouraging independence.
