A Typical Day

we give toddlers time and opportunities daily to immerse themselves in four areas:
Practical Life - Buttoning, zipping, preparing food and toilet training teach independence. Pouring, spooning, and grasping develop fine motor skills, concentration and coordination. Movement exercises and outdoor playtime build large motor skills.
Sensorial - Our children advance their sense of touch, sight, sound, smell, and taste and in turn learn concepts such as size, shape, and color.
Language - We help children gain a rich vocabulary through daily conversations and an exploration of literature via books and finger plays.
Art and Music - Schoolhouse Montessori toddlers develop self-expression and a passion for the arts by creating unique projects, singing playful songs and reciting fun rhymes daily.
