We welcome children ages 2 to 3 years old. We “follow the child” and let toddlers explore in a safe and loving environment and ensure they are safe and held when needed. There are beautiful Montessori materials for preschoolers to explore with low shelving to develop fine-motor skills. There are opportunities for parallel play, and organized and beautiful materials in sequence for the Primary Montessori curriculum: sensorial, math, language, science, and practical life. We offer a unique ratio to allow for a consistent and individualized experience for your child.
Children during this period in their lives need order, independence, language, and movement. We provide an environment for your child to continue caring for himself but also begin to care about their environment. You will see at this age they start to put on their coats, shoes, have responsibilities to clean, and are eager to learn. They gain practical skills for independence, fine and gross motor skills, social skills, and begin to explore reading, writing, and arithmetic. We provide a daily routine that is consistent so your child can trust their environment and know what they can expect each and every day. We have materials that are organized in a certain order so that your child can continue to progress academically and socially. Some of the many beautiful lessons your child will experience are learning their letter sounds, tracing a letter with a sandpaper letter, and beginning to write their name, push in their own chair, arrange flowers throughout the classroom, associate colored beads to numeral cards, trace a number on the sandpaper numbers, begin to pour their water, and more. Come visit us and be ready to be amazed by this incredible setting your child can be a part of. You have to see it believe it and we will provide you with all that you need so that you can continue providing this kind of learning at home.
