“The child gives us a beautiful lesson – that in order to form and maintain our intelligence, we must use our hands.” – Maria Montessori

Lilac Community


Our toddler Montessori guide is trained and focuses on autonomy, separation, and toilet training. In partnership with parents, toddlers are gradually able to
separate from their parents. The Montessori-trained guide supports the child’s
natural development by placing focus on the encouragement of independence.
Through these interactions, toddlers begin to form their character, self-esteem,
purpose of life, social and emotional skills, and learning processes.
The toddler classroom focuses on practical life exercises, activities for
sensorimotor, language development and experiences in art and sciences. 
The classroom is designed so that they are able to choose and move about,
independently. Montessori materials and activities help toddlers to begin
experiencing the concepts of sequence, form, shape, movement, and sound. The
materials and activities change and evolve as the child grows physically,
emotionally, and intellectually.
The outdoor environment is crucial to the development of young children,
providing a natural and curious exploration that creates an inner spiritual need
for toddlers.
