Winfield Toddler program offers an introduction to Montessori education. A low student-teacher ratio helps to bridge the child’s transition from home to school, while providing children with an opportunity to explore new relationships with friends and to interact with adults in a loving and nurturing environment.
As part of their early Montessori experience, toddlers are introduced to age appropriate Montessori materials and invited to make choices from a variety of activities that support their developmental interests and needs. The toddler’s strong sense of autonomy is encouraged while self-esteem is enhanced through social and learning experiences.
Toddlers enjoy music and movement within the classroom curriculum. Snacks, outdoor play, and lunch are a part of the daily routine. The toddler need not be toilet trained as this is a part of toddler development. The Toddler program offers the young child a safe, secure environment with trusting teachers who respect each individual. The school and home partnership is formed assisting the toddlers as they embark on their first school experience.
