Our Montessori school is designed to help each student discover and fully develop his unique talents and abilities. We treat each child as an individual, allowing him to learn optimally at his own pace and in a way that best suits his learning style.
Toddler / Pre-Primary Class
The Toddler / Pre- Primary Environment (ages 12 months – 36 months) is designed for the student beginning their early childhood education. Cognitive, motor, sensory, language, social and practical life activities are all inclusive in the curriculum for the young toddler. Students entering the Toddler environment must be able to walk with ease. They should also be capable of drinking from a small cup as bottles are not permitted in class.
