Montessori Toddler Program
18 MONTHS TO 3 YEARS
18 MONTHS TO 3 YEARS
Your child explores a world of expression and creativity as they choose colors and textures to explore. Art practice also improves fine motor skills, making things like gripping a pencil easier.
By observing your child, providing the right lesson when they’re ready, and letting them practice until mastered, your child excels at every level. Montessori teachers emphasize process rather than product.
Your child’s environment operates like that in a family home, with personalized, nurturing attention. Building trust and lasting bonds with your child is part of the learning process and helps them reach their full potential.
Your child learns how to do for themselves by practicing the skills they need in life, like setting the table, pouring themselves water, and more. Activity boards invite your child to zip zippers, tie shoelaces, and do up buttons.
Healthy relationships are the foundation of fulfillment. Your child learns to use their words to express their needs and wants. They know boundaries and can clearly and lovingly articulate these boundaries to teachers and friends alike.
Your child is continuously learning, exploring, and discovering! Thoroughly cleaned and sanitized play areas, toys, and activities allow your toddler to take their learning and growth by storm, all while staying safe and healthy.
Montessori certified teachers are “guides” facilitating the learning experience rather than determining the process and lesson. Teachers take the lead from the children in the classroom and ensure everyone respects the ground rules.
Montessori education develops capable, accountable, knowledgeable people who can think for themselves. Your child makes choices early, guided by their interests.
Your growing child benefits from being in a setting with both younger and older children. Older children gain confidence as they help and model their younger friends’ skills, while younger children learn from older friends.
A prepared environment acts as your child’s third teacher. Your child discovers new interests daily. An environment where they independently unlock what excites them is vital, as they have the freedom to choose the lessons they gravitate toward naturally.
Watch your child stack the pink tower–cubes of different sizes, from 1 cm up to 10 cm, making a visual for “big” and “small,” or put together a puzzle that teaches them world geography.
Specially-designed materials refine the fine motor skills your child needs to grasp a pencil and to write. For example, tracing letters in the sand is the start of beautiful penmanship.
The Montessori approach invites your child to dress, wash their hands, clean up after themselves, and help others do the same, so they gain the know-how they’ll need for daily life.
Development for your toddler includes academic enhancement and character building that helps them grow into an adult with integrity. Self-esteem and strong social skills can help your child become a model citizen of the world.
Your child experiences a full and exciting experience through music, Spanish, soccer, and other activities. Exposing your child to new activities opens up a world of possibilities as they gain new skills.
The Montessori approach has honed some of the world’s top stars and entrepreneurs’ leadership and talent. Successful children become successful adults and develop thinking that leads to innovations of the future.
