The same Montessori philosophy and approach seen in the preschool class guides the progression of the toddler class. Prescribed goals for toddlers include: (1) to develop body coordination, image and awareness, (2) to strengthen their senses of independence, self-direction, and concentration, and (3) to expand beginning social skills.
Toddler Class (Age 2 to 3.5)
The toddler classroom is planned and prepared especially so that the entering child may experience a sense of achievement in work activities, while the continuing child finds stimulation and challenge.
Great emphasis is placed upon lessons of self-care, gross motor skills, sensory education and verbal and auditory language development. A child need not be toilet learned to enter the toddler class.
