Toddlers/Bambini

Toddlers/Bambini

Ages 2-2 1/2

In September 2005, we opened our Bambini program for children aged 2 to 2 ½. This program offers the younger child a unique learning experience in a warm and inviting environment. Our Bambini classroom promotes learning at an age when children are able to absorb everything and are beginning to form their personalities. This program also allows for lower ratios, ensuring plenty of one-on-one time.

Montessori programming for this younger age group focuses on independence, confidence and self-help skills, which ready the children for the Casa Early Childhood program. The emphasis is on practical life and sensorial activities where children have the opportunity to enhance their fine and gross motor abilities, concentration and visual acuity. The activities offered set the foundation for future learning in language, mathematics and cultural studies. Additionally, the children visit the Orff music program each day for songs and movement activities.

The Bambini program is an excellent way for younger children to become comfortable with the Montessori environment and to develop in an atmosphere of respect and special understanding.
