The Toddler Program:
This program is built upon goals that will develop the child’s inner sense of self. The prepared classroom allows each child to respond to that inherent need to explore the world, to learn the boundaries that will keep them safe, and to experience the fundamentals of working well with others. The toddler environment recognizes the developmentally sensitive periods of the two and young three year old, focusing on support for emerging language, developing independence, and mastering large motor coordination.
Of fundamental importance is the gradual separation of each child from his or her primary caretaker. The Montessori toddler program protects this fragile stage of development by creating a very gentle and slow parting of each adult-child couple.
