The Pre Montessori Program: 1 year 9 months to 2 years 6 months or 3 years
The Pre Montessori program serves children aged 1yr 9 months to 2yrs 6 months or 3 yrs. Amid the fast pace of daily life, we have created a nurturing, unhurried place where your child can come and spend part of their day. Our program is in touch with a toddler’s curious and independent nature, supporting their intrinsic quest for autonomy. The montessori teacher is the connector to the environment, the observer and guide to self-discovery. The classroom has two trained teachers and one nanny.
Our Pre Montessori Program offers children and families a collaborative beginning in the Montessori experience. A low student-teacher ratio in our pre mont classroom helps to bridge the child’s transition from home to school. Children are provided with an opportunity to explore new relationships with friends and to interact with adults in a loving and nurturing environment. As part of their early Montessori experience, toddlers are introduced to age-appropriate Montessori materials and invited to make choices from a variety of activities that support their developmental interests and needs. The toddler’s strong sense of autonomy is encouraged and self-esteem is enhanced through social and learning experiences. Toddlers enjoy music and movement within the classroom curriculum. Snacks and outdoor play are a part of the daily routine. The toddler needs to be toilet-trained. Additionally, the school and home partnership is formed assisting the toddlers as they embark on their first school experience.
