The Parent’s Role


Parents play a significant role in their child’s experience in the Toddler Community! There are many opportunities for parents to discuss their child’s experiences with the Guide, through scheduled conferences, phone calls, and emails. Both parents are required to attend all educational events: Parent Night, Journey & Discovery, and Being A Montessori Parent and to observe their child throughout the year. Insights from observations, conferences and other informal communications will help you to greater understand your child’s development as well as to incorporate the principles of the Toddler Community into your own home life, creating consistent expectations and experiences.


What to Expect

The pace of the Toddler Community is unhurried and homelike, thus supporting children in their early strides for independence.

The Toddler Community is a nurturing environment where very young children experience their first structured contact with other children. By this time, the children are able to separate from their parents in a positive and enjoyable way and benefit from new experiences.
