Toddler Synopsis (18 months-2.5 years)


Toddler Program “A Time To Awaken”-(18 months – 2.5 years)

“The education of even a small child, therefore, does not aim at preparing him for school, but for life.”

-Maria Montessori
At Cambridge Leaf, “A Time To Awaken” is within the heart, soul and spirit of each and every Toddler who enters our community. The first few years of a child’s life are crucial to his or her personality and intellectual development. Young children need not only love, emotional nurturance, and a healthy physical environment, but also an environment that fosters their natural curiosity to explore the world around them; thus the “awakening”. Toddlers flourish in a prepared environment that respects, supports, and responds to their basic needs for independence, exploration, the building of trust, self-esteem and quest for autonomy. We refer to their space as a ‘community’, instead of a classroom, because the children are learning to participate in a cooperative group, as they experience their first contact with other children. We offer an environment that is a thoughtful extension of the home and enables children to grow and learn through spontaneous and self-directed activities. The teachers are committed to aid the child in developing a strong character and a love of learning which sets a foundation for life. Using the Montessori Method of education, the child’s development and growth are at the forefront of their educational journey.
