Little House

Children ages 13-40 months experience a critical period in their educational and emotional development.

They have a great sensitivity for language, spatial relationships, music, art, and social graces. In the rich learning environment at West Side Montessori, toddler teachers carefully construct activities and experiences that capitalize on all of these developmental needs.
Montessori teachers also recognize toddlers need freedom within the security of limits and a place where they feel safe and loved so they may explore the classroom at their own pace and become independent. Activities are carefully sequenced from simple to complex so that each child can be successful.

Dr. Maria Montessori

“Whoever touches the life of a child, touches the most sensitive part of a whole which has roots in the most distant past and climbs toward the infinite future.”
