THE PRESCHOOL PROGRAM
The toddler classroom is a child's first impression of learning outside the home. In a Montessori toddler classroom, you will find that the shelves, tables and chairs are all proportioned to the height of the toddler child. The materials are neatly arranged, and the room is absent of clutter. The walls are simplistic and primarily bare. This is where Young Learners will begin to develop a since of focus, confidence and intrinsic motivation.

HELP FROM HOME
We know that parenting is a journey. We partner with our families because they know their little learner best! We use Brightwheel, a communication App, to ensure that our families stay connected to their child's learning community.
Montessori is a wonderful approach to learning in the classroom. But, what about home? Students spend more time at home than school which is why we are intentional abput equipping our families with the tools they will need to continue Montessori at home. Families that choose Montessori Life are choosing to become a lifelong learner and are committed to partnership with our Montessori Life team and the families that make us so unique.

ABOUT OUR PROGRAM
Over the past 3 years, Montessori Life has dedicated its resources and class space to students ages 3 - 5. Early on, through trial and error, we learned why toddlers need their own space! While they learned so much from their peers, we saw the challenges that our young learners were facing when it came to furniture size, themes and interests.
As more families developed an interest in the Montessori approach and our program, we felt the need to make room for those students who are not quite ready to join the preschool classroom but are absolutely ready to begin their learning journey!
Our toddler program is a Half Day program.
Morning Class - 8:00 AM - 11:00 AM
Afternoon Class - 12:00 PM - 3:00 PM
Each class has a maximum of 7 students. During their class period, students will enjoy exploring their work shelves and practicing the skills that support their care of self. A healthy snack is provided during each session.

We know that this stage of the growing journey can be challenging. In the Young Learners Classroom, we accept students that have begun their toilet training journey but are not quite independent with it yet. Please note that families must have introduced toilet training before the student can enroll in the Young Learners Program. If you are concerned about your child's toileting journey thus far or their readiness for our Young Learners program, please give us a call. We would be happy to help!
