This is a "Watch me Grow" room, which allows parents opportunity for live streaming access.

Our Toddler room is an environment designed to allow independence and freedom as the child learns to achieve more complex and challenging milestones, such as language and social skills.

Montessori lessons such as sorting, matching, stacking, carrying and learning colors, observing shapes, responding to the teacher and learning different tastes are the hallmark of this age. 

Toddlers get introduced to simple movements and stretching with kids yoga.

The sensitive period for self awareness and toileting begins at 18 months of age. Our teachers follow the development of each child and begin to follow their cues and introduce the concept of "sitting on the potty", "hand washing" in this room. 

Meals are served  family style with real utensils and tableware and toddlers are encouraged to learn to feed themselves. They also learn to use open cups for drinking. 

Toddler : 13 - 18 months

Development of gross and fine motor skills begins as children enjoy working with simple practical life materials and manipulative work. They show joy and pride in accomplishing these tasks. With encouragement, we guide them to care for their space and the materials.

The toddler learns to control his body through lessons such as walking in a line, sitting in a circle, taking turns and following movement modeled by the teacher.

Participation in activities is encouraged and toddlers are expressive and enjoy completing tasks on their own.
