Only through freedom and environmental experience is it practically possible for human development to occur.” ~Maria Montessori
The Pre-Primary Program (Ages 24-35 months) is based on play and learning activities which make use of Montessori materials to help lay the foundation of future learning. The focus is on the following key developmental areas:
- Sensory and Perceptual Development
- Self-Help Skills
- Physical and Motor Skills
- Social and Emotional Growth
The first few years of your child’s life are crucial to the development of personality and intellect. This is a period during which learning takes place at an accelerated pace. At The Seedlings Montessori School, we provide the sense of security and loving care that toddlers need to thrive during this stage of intense learning.
Since children at this age are especially committed to achieving independence, our teachers provide responsive individual attention as your child deals with positive experiences as well as frustration. Our curriculum takes advantage of the rapid growth of gross and fine motor skills at this stage of development.
Our experienced staff prepares the classroom environment to enhance the learning of the group enrolled. Teachers recognize children’s special developmental needs and create environments that foster the incredible intellectual, emotional, social, and physical growth occurring during this developmental phase in the child’s life. The environments offer the beauty, order, and predictability necessary for the young child to feel comfortable to spontaneously explore.
Our staff is dedicated to giving the children their first experience of a children’s community, where each member is respected and loved, and where the child’s natural curiosity leads to real learning.
