Children ages 16-33 months may begin their Montessori experience. Our toddler community nurtures the child’s exploration of the world through meaningful and hands-on opportunities. Feelings of security are met through long standing, nurturing staff and routines. Snacks and food works encourage toddlers to make healthy choices and develop independent skills such as pouring, food preparation and food serving. Toddlers also engage in story time, music and movement, arts/crafts, naptime, dress up, science, and so much more!
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
