Toddler Program: Early Preschool (Ages 15 mo-2.5 yrs)

Toddler Arranging Flower in Preschool

Our toddler classroom creates a calm and peaceful environment. Drawing off of a Montessori preschool classroom model, children explore lessons in five Montessori areas. The lesson’s sequencing order develops physical and emotional independence through language, as well as small and large motor skills. Children are engaged in social activities through large group (i.e. circle time) and small group lessons. Children also have the freedom to choose developmentally appropriate individual work. The lead teacher guides the toddlers towards readiness for our kindergarten program. Potty training is also a part of our toddler program.

IMA’s Toddler classrooms are a stepping stone into language immersion environment where children are surrounded by multiple languages as they develop independence and really come into their identity as a learner and part of a community.

Our goal is to create an atmosphere in the classroom that is spontaneous, joyful, and purposeful where children demonstrate a sense of community and concern for each other.

Toddler with Montessori Toy

Montessori Preschool Classroom

When you walk into a Montessori classroom the arrangement of the furniture may differ but you’re going to have 5 recognizable areas of the classroom that relate to the 5 areas that a Montessori cycle is going to cover with the children. Keeping in mind, Montessori classrooms are multi-age classrooms, within a toddler classroom you’re going to have children ranging from 15 mo- 36 mo years old so once they’ve become fully potty-trained in a toddler classroom we transition them into a primary classroom.
