Rose Room is a Little House classroom for ages 2-3 years old on the Toledo Campus. Stacey Alfonso and Molly Kujawa are the classroom’s co-teachers.


Toddlers love sensory play.  Often, at home, we don’t want the mess or don’t have the space to let our little ones experiment with different substances.  That is why school is so great!  We welcome messes!

Dawn, from the office, was happy to bring over a large box filled with packing peanuts.  Our Rose Room friends were thrilled with the morning surprise!  As you can see the box was large enough for several friends and hidden objects!  The children experimented with crushing the peanuts, blowing them in the air and jumping on the peanuts.


Parent/Teacher conferences are October 28 and 29 from 4-6 p.m. and October 30 from 8-3:30 p.m.  Child care is available by reservation only for Thursday and will be billed through the office.  Free drop in child care is available during your scheduled conference time.  No school or child care on Friday, October 31st.


Just in time for your fall clean-up, West Side Montessori is offering a free community recycling event at the Toledo Campus on Saturday, Oct. 25, from 9 a.m. to 1 p.m. Bring over all your unwanted electronic devices for safe destruction and recycling. All technology equipment will be safely wiped for your protection. Check out the list below for what will be accepted!



Thank you Rose Room friends for all the Autumn donations!  We have big pumpkins, little pumpkins, gourds, corn, pine cones, acorns and leaves…oh my!

A large pumpkin is used for pumpkin scrubbing.  This is a big work!  First the child must put on the apron.  Next she takes the small pitcher to the sink and fills it with water.  Then she must carry it carefully back to the pumpkin and pour it on the pumpkin.  She may repeat this part of the activity several times until she is satisfied that the pumpkin is wet enough.  Next she takes the soap and “writes” on the pumpkin.  She then takes the scrub brush and scrubs in a circular motion all around until she is ready to rinse it clean.  This requires more trips to the sink.  Next she dries the pumpkin off with a towel and finally removes the apron.

A smaller pumpkin is used for pumpkin coloring.  The child removes the black marker cap and colors on the pumpkin.  When he is finished he takes the damp wash cloth and cleans the pumpkin for the next artist.

A HUGE pumpkin is used for pumpkin pounding.  This is by far the favorite choice!  The child takes golf tees and places them in the starter holes and hammers them into the pumpkin.  Then, using the pincer grasp, he removes all the golf tees for the next friend.  This is a wonderful eye-hand coordination activity.

We have an Autumn sensory table outside on our patio.  The table is filled with gourds, corn, pumpkins, pine cones, leaves and acorns.  The children enjoy exploring all the different textures, colors, shapes and sizes.  We have a basket inside the classroom as well.  We also have a basket with our 5 Little Pumpkins.  We lay out the pumpkins in a line and say the rhyme: “Five little pumpkins, sitting on a gate.  The first one said, “Oh my it’s getting late!”  The second one said, “There are witches in the air!”  The third one said, “We don’t care!” The fourth one said, “I’m ready for some fun!” The fifth one said, “Let’s run and run and run!”  Oooooooo went the wind and out went the lights and the five little pumpkins rolled out of sight!”

We often get parents requesting the words to the songs we sing at school.  So we decided to post videos of some of the popular songs.  We hope to publish more videos with our younger friends as they become more comfortable at circle time.  We hope you enjoy these videos!  Please allow a few minutes for each video to download.

Thank you!
