THE TODDLER COMMUNITY


“Help me to do it myself.”- Maria Montessori


The teacher assists the child in developing self-control and self-confidence through communication and real life activities.  In this safe and caring environment, these young children are encouraged to explore and challenge themselves as they develop into independent human beings.  It is during this period of development that a balance between trust and independence begins to merge.


The Toddler Program serves children in a small and intimate group of twelve children; a Montessori trained Toddler teacher and a trained teacher’s assistant.  There are two program options, either half or full day. The environment conforms to the physical needs of the children, both in the size of the furnishings and in the opportunities for development.
