Montessori Toddler Program
Our Montessori Toddler program for 2-year-olds is able to offer your child more than any typical daycare could, allowing your little one to explore and experiment within our thoughtfully prepared classroom environments. Gladwyne Montessori Toddlers are brimming with energy, giggles and curiosity.
When our 2-year-olds first enter their classrooms, you’ll find them taking off their own shoes and changing into slippers. The significance? This is one of the many lessons that a toddler will come to participate in that encourages self-reliance and helps develop a variety of skills.
Throughout the year, your little one will develop confidence, a love of learning and the skills required to communicate both with peers and adults in a nurturing and academic setting. One of the goals of the Toddler curriculum is to establish a work cycle within your child: he or she will choose a material or lesson, independently bring it to a table or mat, work purposefully with it for as long as they need and put it away once they are finished. These initial skills and steps form the foundation of their academic journey and are instrumental in preparing them for their future experiences and success, both socially and academically.
Perhaps most importantly, your child will practice independence in a safe and nurturing environment. Unlike any traditional daycare, Gladwyne Montessori’s Toddler program focuses on the specific physical, emotional, social and spiritual needs of your child. Our trained Montessori Guides observe each child individually, providing the necessary support and instruction that fosters meaningful growth and budding independence within your little one. Day by day, your child will blossom into a confident and independent member of this learning community
The Toddler program at Gladwyne Montessori is specifically designed and structured to support children who are 2-years-old by September 1. Toddlers can enroll for five or three-days of school, with morning (9 a.m. to noon) and full day availability (9 a.m. to 3 p.m.) for five-day students. Toddler families hail from Gladwyne, Ardmore, Bala Cynwyd, Bryn Mawr, Haverford, Philadelphia, Narberth, and Wayne and beyond.
Additionally, we offer extended day options both in the morning and afternoon to help accommodate families and their busy schedules. Get in touch with us to learn more about enrolling your little one in our Toddler program.
