Toddler Program

The Nelephant Montessori School Toddler Program is a warm community of children between the ages of 18 months and 3 years. It provides opportunities for social interaction, self-expression, independence, development of language as well as fine and gross motor skills.

The Scientifically-Proven
Montessori Method

Nelephant Montessori School provides a learning environment for children to develop at their own pace. A Montessori classroom is a place where creativity, innovation, and individuality are encouraged, just as much as concentration, motivation, and persistence.

Toddler Program

Our staff encourage students on their path of independent learning by presenting many carefully selected Montessori materials. The Montessori teachers in this environment follow the child’s interests and present materials to support their individual growth.

Additionally, the teachers may gather the children for small group lessons (2-3 children) and classroom circle times. The Nelephant Montessori School Toddler Program has a 1:5 ratio (up to a maximum of 15 children), including at least one trained Montessorian as well as Early Childhood Educators.

The Montessori Method

At Nelephant Montessori School, Dr. Maria Montessori’s philosophy is closely followed. The materials in the classroom environments are specifically designed to allow children to feel autonomous while completing their tasks.

The Toddler environment is organized to emulate the home. Designed to allow the child independence, the room and all materials in it are carefully chosen to promote exploration of one’s own capabilities and growth through challenges. It encourages social interactions as well as a sense of community that toddlers require to develop social and emotional maturity.
