Children ages 16-33 months may begin their Montessori experience in our Toddler Community. This peaceful environment is thoughtfully designed to encourage independence in very young children. They engage in purposeful work appropriate for the developing child. Attractive materials are carefully arranged to meet the child’s need for order and to invite exploration rich with opportunities for language development, movement, and exercises of practical life. The toddler develops his attention span, coordination, and feelings of security and independence daily while participating in individual and group games, world music, story time, and arts and crafts. Daily routine in the Toddler Community includes opportunities for large muscle development on our amazing custom indoor or outdoor play areas, nap, and a variety of healthy snacks.
