The Toddler Program

Each year there will be students who progress academically, physically, socially and/or mentally to the point that they would benefit by moving to a level that offers more challenging opportunities to match their development. Readiness criteria differs from level to level and program placements are not determined solely by academic ability or age.


The Toddler Program

18 months to 36 months

The Toddler Program accommodates children that are walking and from around 18 months up to 36 months of age but not yet potty trained. These young learners are beginning work in the early Montessori method materials with the help and assistance of a lead teacher and trained assistants. The Toddler Program supports young children learning to potty on their own but with guidance as needed. There is a range of developmental practices for children gaining their independence as young walkers and talkers. An emphasis at this level is placed on gross and fine motor development and language development in a supportive and nurturing environment. Toddlers are given every opportunity to use the restroom on a modified schedule to encourage the natural rhythm of their bodies as they begin to adjust to a routine. At no time is any child chastised for having an accident. This is to be expected as part of the learning process.


The Toddler Program is divided into two subgroups:

Toddler I: Early Learners 

Toddler II:   Pre-Primary
