Toddler Program: Ages 2-3

Toddler Program hours are 8:30 to 11:30 am or all day from 8:30 am to 3:00 pm five days per week. Toddlers who turn two by September 15 are eligible. The Toddler Village includes three Toddler classrooms, each outfitted with Toddler-sized doors alongside adult-sized doors, full length windows that allow young children an eye-level view of the outside world, a playground just their size, a garden area, and dedicated outdoor workspaces for each classroom.

The MSD Toddler curriculum is designed to meet the Toddler’s growing emotional and cognitive abilities during this formative period for the development of personality, trust, independence, focus, and problem-solving. Children are free to explore and find works that spark their interest in a safe and carefully prepared indoor and outdoor environment.

Toddler Program Overview

  • Montessori materials invite exploration and experimentation. The materials help to develop the child’s ability to concentrate and focus, refine sensory perceptions, aid in gross and fine motor abilities, and language skills
  • Toddlers are taught practical life skills such as how to serve themselves a snack, pour their own healthy drinks from a pitcher, put on their coats and shoes, blow their nose, and clean up spills…not to mention toilet-learning
  • The classroom has plenty of room for social interactions, which reinforce the grace and courtesy lessons and provide opportunities to learn about sharing, taking turns, being patient and being a good friend. Activities are designed to develop coordination and independence as well as to encourage positive group interaction and increased self-esteem
  • MSD Teachers provide warmth, patience, and encouragement necessary for each child to reach their personal best
