The purpose of our program is to bring out the best in each child and to help each child reach his/ her potential. In keeping with our blended philosophy of the Ontario's Padegogy for the Early Years Act and the Montessori methods, the Toddlers are introduced to the Montessori materials at this stage in their life. With the guidance of our trained teachers and with our teacher to student ratio (1:5), the children are able to self-regulate and develop the foundation of a strong personality in a safe, caring and nurturing environment.
Areas include gross motor development; fine motor development, language skills and sensory/perceptual development.
