The Toddler Environment
The Nurtury provides a prepared environment for Infants/Toddlers (18-36 months).
Children who are now comfortably walking are taken out of the Nido Room, and moved to the toddler rooms which conform to their increased physical needs. The children learn concentration, order, sequence, and skills adapted to their development with practical life.
The practical life area includes helping the infants to eat by themselves, drinking from a cup, sweeping, cleaning tables, caring for plants and animals, food preparation, dish washing, hand washing, window cleaning, flower arranging and so on.
The sensorial area allows children to use their senses to learn about the world. In the toddler rooms, a child can learn to distinguish different heights, lengths, weights, colors, sounds, smells, shapes, and textures. The language, math, geography, and science areas provide the child with ideas for their intellectual development.
Language activities and materials increase vocabulary and conversational skills. The movement area includes: stairs and a platform, movement mat, push cart, and sit and spin.
We use a number of multi-sensory, sequential, and self-correcting Montessori materials to facilitate learning. Materials for eye-hand coordination such as threading, bead stringing, cubes on pegs, spheres on horizontal pegs, puzzles, gluing, folding; and various practical life exercises, coloring, painting and cooking projects.
The environment provides space for movement, space for individual work, and space for group activities. Selected art placed low on the walls for art appreciation, as well as creative art activities. Through song and dance, and freedom of choice, the children have access to a variety of large muscle activities that offer them opportunities to jump, climb, balance, crawl, or skip.
