The toddler environment is carefully designed to promote independence. The furniture and materials are toddler size so that the children can learn to control their movements and to be responsible for taking care of themselves. The teachers in this room assist the young child in making the transition from home to the outside school environment. The program emphasizes independence, concentration, coordination and includes toilet learning. In the classroom, they spend their time in practical life, sensorimotor and language skills, pre-math, science and arts areas of the Montessori curriculum.
