Little children, from the moment they are weaned, are making their way toward independence.
– Dr. Maria Montessori
A Montessori environment of carefully chosen materials appeals the child to work, concentrate, and enjoy. With us, your toddler learns from direct interaction, by means of all the senses. Through movement the child literally absorbs what surrounds them. Our lessons are at the very best quality; inviting the child to self-respect, respect and develop an appreciation of beauty.
Your toddler’s essential task is to sort out reality, he enters a world of apparent chaos which he must make order. At our Schools we provide his needs to acquire coordination that is, a mastery of his movements. Your child needs to acquire a degree of independence in his self care, care of the environment, to build the length of his concentration span and to acquire problem solving techniques. His primary interests are, What and Where.
We facilitate all of this by building a positive self concept through relationships with loving adults who have prepared a good physical and emotional environment for him (her).
The aim of our toddler program is to prepare your child to enter the primary education (Preschool Ages 3-6) by allowing toddlers to become self-aware and develop independence. Toddlers learn to do things for themselves through our curriculum materials while teachers serve as guides.
