Toddler Community (17 months – 32 months)
“Man pursues education with greatest intensity during the first three years of life. To this period, more than to any other, it is imperative to give active care”, said Maria Montessori. The joyful child gets purposeful learning that develops self pride, innovativeness and independence. Carefully crafted environment includes material that caters to the needs of a young learner feeding into the natural independent instinct, satiating the inquisitiveness through self exploration and building confidence.
Practical life activities are very important lessons for our toddlers. These purposeful activities develop motor control and coordination; develop independence, concentration and sense of responsibility. Language development, coordination or movement, problem solving and grace & courtesy are also important lessons in our toddler age group. One of the most important ways to be independent is to use the bathroom. Our classrooms are set up to promote the child’s success in this process. Our prepared environment and mixed age classrooms allow the process to flow in the most natural way.
DMS creates in Toddlers a joy for life and purpose in learning. The Toddler program is designed to help children develop their social skills, basic motor skills, coordination, movement control, independence, and language- New vocabulary, correct pronunciation. The toddler program is a nurturing social community where very young children experience participation in a cooperative group. Around three years of age, children manifest the ability for a more challenging environment where they consciously work on self-construction.
