In the program, young toddlers engage with curated Montessori materials in a prepared environment and try new things while our trained teachers encourage self-initiated learning by provide them with freedom to explore on their own while remaining close by to support where needed.
During the class, children socialize with a small group of peers and the adults in the environment. Through purposeful social interactions, children learn to trust in themselves, in others, and in the world around them.
Transitional Toddler classes seamlessly integrate music and art activities to entice even the most reserved child to engage in learning. The classroom environment also includes activities in subject areas such as practical life, psycho-sensory learning, language and culture, and movement.
