Gladwyne, PA -- (SBWIRE) -- 04/24/2020 -- To help stimulate curiosity and accelerate cognitive development during the crucial first three years of life, Gladwyne Montessori is proud to offer children a unique learning experience through the school's Infant– Toddler program.
Children develop more rapidly from birth until age three than in any other stage of their lives. Therefore, a Montessori classroom environment is ideally suited for young children, offering personal attention and a curriculum that constantly evolves to reflect a teacher's daily observations of each individual child.
While Gladwyne Montessori's Infant–Toddler program offers a variety of classes catering to different age groups, all classes promote the development of essential skills such as language, problem-solving, concentration, visual discrimination, and physical coordination. Below is an overview of each class in the program.
INFANT: This class accommodates eight non-mobile or crawling infants and offers a peaceful learning environment for children as young as six weeks. Class size is limited to eight, and the classroom is equipped with special child-sized furniture and tools to promote physical development.
YOUNG TODDLER: In this class, children ages 12 to 23 months are introduced to classic Montessori curriculum, with a focus on language and the development of motor skills. With 15 students and three teachers in the class, each child receives ample individual attention and encouragement.
PARENT-TODDLER: This class integrates at-home and school-based learning, offering an opportunity for children between 12 and 23 months of age and their parents to grow together under the guidance of a Montessori-trained teacher.
TODDLER: In this independence-focused class, children are free to explore their environment, observe their peers, indulge their curiosity, and express their creativity. They learn personal hygiene and self-care skills, including how to use the restroom and how to serve themselves a meal.
