A toddler class begins the educational process during the sensitive period for language and movement, from ages 18 – 36 months. In this class, toddlers are encouraged to independently explore and make choices in a safe environment. Toddlers are given many opportunities for learning, including learning to care for their own needs and the needs of the classroom. They love to help set the table for snack, fold laundry, sweep crumbs off the floor, wash dishes, and learn to put their belongings away. Montessori materials are available, which teach language, counting, sorting, and all about the world around them. Our student-to-teacher ratio is 6:1, with a maximum class size of 12 students.
The learning environment is home-like and fully equipped with Montessori materials, a gross motor play area in the classroom and a separate outdoor play area. Our Toddler students are exposed to Spanish each day.
