The Montessori Toddler Community
The Montessori Toddler Community, also known as The Young Children’s Community offers children 18 months –2 ½ years, opportunities to explore their own capabilities and to develop independence within a supportive environment. Our Montessori Toddler community provides a nurturing place for young children to begin their “education for life”.
A toddler environment is a space designed for the developmental needs of this age group from the size of the furniture, to the activities provided, to the emotional support and guidance given. The Toddler classroom is set up very much like a home with distinct areas for food preparation, changing clothes, toileting, group activities, individual activities and quiet moments.
The teacher is a Montessori trained professional, certified for the toddler age group, and accomplished in recognizing and nurturing the specific developmental needs of this unique phase. The ratio for this community is 1:5. The head teacher and two assistants provide the love, patience, warmth, and respect necessary for the toddler to feel safe and thrive within this community.
