About Our Toddler Program
The Montessori for toddler classrooms are simpler and slower paced than the Montessori preschool rooms for three- to six-year-olds. Tables and chairs are smaller and the teacher-child ratio is lower (1:6 or 1:7 all the way to 36 months.) This early childhood education atmosphere is positive, supportive, and non-competitive, and it includes a lot of singing and physical movement. It focuses on learning styles that go well beyond traditional childcare.
The toddler Montessori materials are specifically structured to meet the developmental needs of toddlers and to support their need for purposeful activity. The Montessori toddler classroom focuses on two main areas, language development and acquiring skills for independence and social interactions, supplemented by select, simplified sensorial materials. We’re ready to provide your Golden Valley or Eden Prairie child with an amazing head start in life!
