Toddler Program

Our Montessori Infant-Toddler program is an amazing start for children!  Our Montessori program is a licensed, age-appropriate program that focuses on fostering the young child’s independence. 

An emphasis on daily routine provides the child with a comforting schedule and promotes the acquisition of skills, language, cognitive, and social development in a way that meets the child’s developmental needs at their own pace. 
Learning activities / learning areas in the program include:
  • Self-Care: such as washing, dressing, toileting, and eating, according to each child’s individual capacity
  • Care of the Environment: such as cleaning, food preparation and food service; plant care and animal care
  • Large-Motor and Fine-Motor activities (indoors and out): jumping, running, climbing, balance, focus, concentration, etc
  • Language: including proper naming of objects, describing actions and intentions, discussing pictures, conversation, music, and singing
