About Parent-Toddler Program

Toddlers Making New Discoveries And Seeking Out New Information

Dr. Montessori recognized during her observations of infants and toddlers that the first few years of a child’s life are critical to the development of personality and intellect. This is the time when toddlers are using their bodies, senses, and problem-solving skills to make new discoveries and seek out new information.

Our toddler program will give children the opportunity to develop their independence while learning through active play and an environment flourishing with hands-on materials. The Montessori-certified guide is trained to observe the children and direct them towards new learning experiences based on their individual needs.

The Parent-Toddler Program is a unique learning experience for parent and child to enjoy together

A Montessori educator certified by the Institute of Advanced Montessori Studies in Infant – Toddler education will open the environment specifically designed for the young child of 18 months to 3 years. One parent or caregiver and one toddler may attend.

Parent-toddler Montessori method

The Child Will Be Encouraged To Explore At Will

The child will be encouraged to explore at will freely choosing materials that foster self development in an atmosphere of special understanding. The comfort of this environment promotes a peaceful first introduction for the young child with opportunities to practice social interactions with peers and other adults.

The parent is present to nurture and support their child’s growing need for independence. Parents will learn the basic principles of the Montessori method and take home ideas and suggestions for creating a supportive home for children.

The Montessori Educator is a guide and a resource

The Parent-Toddler Program is facilitated by our Beginnings classroom guide (teacher).  She will model interactions, share new information, and facilitate discussions.

Parent-Toddler sessions are held twice per school year:  Spring and Fall!  The fall session begins in late October, and the spring session begins in late February.  There are five weekly classes held on Monday mornings from 9 to 10:30 AM.  The cost is $150 for the entire five-week session.  One parent and one toddler may attend.  It need not be the same parent each week, and grandparents are welcome to participate as the “substitute” parent if desired.

UPDATE:  Spring, 2023 Registration open as of December 1st.  Program space is limited!  Questions about space availability?–Call 410.848.6283.  Thank you!

“The child’s development follows a path of successive stages of independence, and our knowledge of this must guide us in our behavior toward him.”
