Children ages 16-33 months may begin their Montessori experience in our Toddler Community. This peaceful environment is thoughtfully designed to encourage independence in very young children. They engage in purposeful work appropriate for the developing child. Attractive materials are carefully arranged to meet the child’s need for order and to invite exploration rich with opportunities for language development, movement, and exercises of practical life.
The toddler develops his or her attention span, coordination, and feelings of security and independence daily while participating in individual and group games, world music, story time, and arts and crafts. Daily routine in the Toddler Community includes opportunities for large muscle development on our amazing custom indoor or outdoor play areas, nap, and a variety of healthy snacks
“We are so pleased with our decision to send our son to Miniapple. Whether it has been the Infant or Toddler Room, our family has felt welcomed and treated as part of the Miniapple family. Ryan has developed and progressed faster than we had expected, and he absolutely loves coming to school every day. In fact, on weekends he often talks about his teachers and friends. It is a safe and nurturing environment. When we are at work, we are confident our son is receiving top notch care. We would recommend Miniapple to anyone looking for a first class child care program. In the future, without hesitation, we will continue to have Miniapple be a part of our family.” – Amy & Pat
