In Montessori toddler programs, children are encouraged to explore their surroundings, develop independence, and build important life skills. The classroom environment is carefully prepared with age-appropriate materials that stimulate the child’s senses and promote exploration. Teachers act as guides, observing the child’s interests and facilitating learning experiences based on their individual needs.
Montessori of the Village is organized to facilitate spontaneous development in children. Because development occurs for each child as an individual, a typical day provides numerous opportunities for the children to choose and complete activities independently. Their work follows their interests.
