At school, development is strongly linked to the way your child sees him or herself reflected back in a teacher’s response. Montessori teachers respond to toddlers in a way that’s patient, confident – and consistently positive.
In Fox Valley Montessori School's toddler classroom, we focus on activities that allow children to experience self-care: dressing yourself, serving yourself food at meal time, or cleaning up. Toddlers are also developing important language skills, teachers use precise words and directions to help them find their way.
The toddler environment is designed for your child to experience freedom and discovery. Everything – tables, furniture, materials – is toddler-sized. Everything can be touched and used by a toddler. Everything is genuine – no dining with toy forks or pouring from a plastic pitcher. School is a chance to discover the real world – and to discover yourself in the process.
