The Toddler Program: 18 to 36 months
Dr. Montessori recognized that toddler aged children absorb great amounts of knowledge from their environment quickly and effortlessly. The Montessori toddler classroom is thoughtfully prepared to foster the growth of this unique period of time and is a nurturing and rich learning environment.
Children's House: Ages 3 to 6
The Pre-K environment, first and foremost, is a "children’s house": a calming and respectful space that belongs to the children in scale, proportion, flow, comfort, safety, and inspiration. It is a hands-on, interactive, sensorial environment that "calls" to them. It is a place "of grace and beauty". It is here that the seeds of literacy, numeracy, care of self, others and the environment are sown. Both the practical and wondrous are offered in response to the child’s innate striving toward independence, toward the desire and ability to "do it for myself".
