Montessori Parent +Toddler Class


Parent + Toddler Class

for toddlers walking - 3 yrs old
A welcoming space to explore Montessori for toddlers and their caregivers.

This 2 hour class is largely unstructured, allowing for the exploration and deep concentration toddlers experience in a Montessori work cycle.

The classroom is designed to invite the child in to explore with materials placed at their level, ready to be used. Activities range from food preparation, to language materials, to hammering (into playdough or clay), to climbing, to tearing little pieces of paper and cleaning it up with a carpet sweeper. During the toddler's exploration, caregivers are present to help when needed and step back when not needed, and are given tools to support their child's development.

Class ends with a short group time, where toddlers practice being aware of others, taking turns, and singing!

  • Siblings/twins are welcome to attend with a single caregiver.
  • Younger siblings are welcome to come along but will pay for a space when they are one year old.
  • Shoes are not allowed in the classroom. Please bring non-slip socks/slippers for you and your child. The marble floor is cold and slick!

  • Masks are required for adults and children 3+.
  • Please stay home if you or your child are showing cold or fever symptoms.
  • If you or your child have been exposed, you may not attend class until 10 days post exposure.

It is not developmentally appropriate to expect children of this age range to meet that masking requirement.
