Toddlers Class Program

In our toddler class we will follow a developmentally appropriate play-based curriculum, including an introduction to basic Montessori concepts. The students will follow a structured routine that will consist of language arts, mathematics, social studies, science, Spanish, French and use of the practical life and sensorial materials.

The four classroom centers consist of: Language, Mathematics, Practical Life & Sensorial.

Various Montessori Concepts will include: grasping, spooning, pouring, dressing frames, use of tower blocks and broad stairs, ‘Order’ using the material (taking it out, using the material, putting it back in its original form).

In this class we assist with potty training.
