Toddler program

What is Toddler program?

Toddler program is a 3.5 hour morning program for Toddlers without parents at age 1,5 – 3 years in Czech – English Montessori enviroment. 

As modern research has confirmed the first three years of life are the most important for building a stable foundation from which the child can rise up to their full potential.  We create an environment to support the Toddler in their acknolwedged sensitive periods  focusing on three major learning curves:

  • The acquisition of Language
  • perfection of Movemen
  • involvement in maintaining Order.  

The physical, emotional, social and cognitive development the child goes through is extremely intensive in the first three years. By 18 months, the child has learned the better part of walking (and running), is outgrowing or has outgrown the need for diapers, has established their native tongue and is practicing it, and has a burning desire to do what adults do and learn about how everything in the world works. In the second year, the language areas of the brain are developing at lightning speed and the child has a language “explosion”; at the same time, nerve myelination is moving downward,  causing more precise physical coordination and higher-order brain functioning in self- awareness.  All evidence points to the value of exposing children to as much diversity and practice in order to perfect each skill they gain. This is the time to bring the child out of the home and into a peer environment for a short time each day.

Toddler activities in Montessori enviroment can be roughly divided into the following areas: 

  • Practical Life (Caring for Self, Other and Community)
  • Sensorial activities
  • Language skills
  • Arts & Crafts
  • Music/Rhythm
  • Fine and Gross Motor Development
  • Grace & Courtesy and Social Skills 

Our most important goal is to encourage independence and interdependence in the Toddler, encouraging the Toddler to find their own individual way and perfect their own being. The famous Montessori quote “Never do for a child what the child can do for himself” is our motto.
