BABY & TODDLER PROGRAM
Ages 12 Months to 3 Years
This program is based on the philosophy of Dr. Maria Montessori in addition to current research on child development and educational methodologies. Central to the Montessori philosophy is the notion that young children possess an innate drive to explore and learn about their world through systematically and purposefully investigating their environment.
Our Toddler program is dedicated to providing an individualized and developmentally appropriate program that is designed to enhance each child’s natural love of learning, independence, and self-discipline. Our approach focuses on the whole child and is designed to promote and optimize their intellectual, emotional, physical, and social development.
The activities offered are simple, suited for the needs, interests, and capabilities of very young children. The pace is unhurried and the children are provided the opportunity to be occupied with an activity for a period of time, uninterrupted. When a child is ready for a new activity, a teacher is ready to give individual attention to that child.
The goals of the program are to foster good learning habits, language development, motor control, social development, how to deal with confrontation in a constructive manner, to respect the worth of another child, and to develop a positive attitude toward school and learning.
