Toddler 1

Program For Children 12 months To 18-24 months (depending on development)

The Toddler 1 Program is based upon each child's individual developmental characteristics and needs. In the Toddler 1 room, your child's emerging sense of individuality is fostered in an environment that combines safety, health, security, acceptance and fun. The Toddler 1 program provides for the development of the whole child in the areas of social, physical, intellectual, and emotional growth. It focuses on your child’s natural learning style and provides activities that are varied, challenging, and interesting.



The children will have an opportunity to experience various forms of art daily, including (but not limited to) finger painting, brush painting, and coloring with crayons.


During Montessori Time, your toddler will be able to use different, child-appropriate materials and lessons: scooping with balls and spoons, pegboards, blocks, puzzles, pouring, and sorting toys. We believe that art projects and Montessori time assist in the development of cognitive, language, and fine motor skills. We also teach the children important life skills in caring for the materials, including storing them after they are done with the work.


Every effort is made to make transitions as smooth as possible. As your child's transition date approaches, you can assist by planning extra time to visit together and get acquainted with the environment.
