The classes include circle time at the beginning and end to get to know everyone’s names, introduce the lesson or theme, and then for closure and saying goodbye. During the class, we incorporate music, reading, and finger games. Children start working with authentic Montessori materials and tools in the kitchen area; they also begin to create their first artworks and explore their creativity. These activities help with the development of fine motor skills, aesthetic perception, and creative thinking.
Toddlers who start with The Nido and Montessori Baby and me groups become familiar with the school’s classroom routines and customs. They know how to work with some materials, independently make activity choices, and orient themselves in a Montessori environment. Additionally, they begin to build their relationship with our educators. All this helps create a comfortable beginning for your child’s first school experience and preparation for the Toddler program.
