Toddler Program

The Toddler classrooms are designed to be a place that feels like home. The teachers and the environment encourage children to develop a life-long love of learning fueled by their inner curiosity and self-initiative. The classroom is carefully prepared to meet the needs of two year olds, allowing them to freely explore in a beautiful environment that is just their size. Each child has the opportunity to strengthen language skills , refine gross and fine motor skills and develop independence and confidence.


The daily life of the classroom provides activities for practicing social skills and caring for others , as well as exploration of music, movement and literature. Under the careful guidance of Montessori-trained teachers our children engage in practical life pursuits, such as gardening, dressing, and hand washing, as well as pre-reading activities, puzzles, art, and conversation. Independence is fostered by allowing the children to choose from a variety of lessons that they can accomplish with success. The daily practice of these activities enhances the children's ability to communicate with confidence, move with grace, and develop self-reliance.
