Toddlers

Program Goals

  • Foster exploration and independence
  • Lay the foundation for future learning

Curriculum

Since toddlers are committed to achieving independence, we provide responsive individual attention as your child deals with positive experiences as well as frustration. Toddler learning is based on play and learning activities which make use of Montessori materials. We focus on these key developmental areas:

  1. Sensory and perceptual development
  2. Self-help skills
  3. Physical and motor skills
  4. Social and emotional growth

Our curriculum takes advantage of the rapid growth of gross and fine motor skills at this stage of development. In a typical day, the toddlers experience large and small motor activities involving

  • self-help skills
  • snack preparation
  • exploring manipulatives
  • music with movement
  • art expression
  • practice with social skills
  • caring for nature

Ages : 18 to 36 months

Size: up to 16 students per class (Silverlake) | Up to 18 students per class (Shadow Creek Ranch)

The Toddler Room

Our nurturing, unhurried environment follows the natural rhythm of the child. The toddler can explore and experience at his own social, physical and cognitive level in an outdoor and indoor environment.

The goal of early childhood education should be to activate the child’s own natural desire to learn
