Celebrating Independent Spirits
We serve toddlers ages 18 months to 3 years old, 5 days a week, in a half-day program from 8:30-11:45 a.m.
Extended day programs are available for an additional fee.
In our toddler classrooms, we celebrate the independent spirit, active curiosity, and energy of our students. Exciting growth occurs in the toddler years, and our carefully planned classrooms are ideal places to foster your child’s resolute desire to explore and learn. Our teachers support this independent spirit, which builds self-confidence and joy in discovery. Toddlers spend their days in a warm, inviting space filled with art and music that is purposefully designed to encourage social, physical, and emotional growth and awareness. Children learn practical life skills, such as preparing food, setting the table, and sitting for a meal with friends. Authentic Montessori materials offer hands-on experiences to teach the fundamentals of reading, writing, mathematics, and cognitive thinking.
Areas of learning include spoken and written language, reading, mathematics, cultural studies (geography, history and science), art, sensorial work (sensory awareness) and practical life skills. Specialty areas of study such as physical education, library, Spanish and music are part of the standard curriculum. See our Curriculum Map to view the curriculum for all students at RMS.
Our Spanish program is focused on promoting enjoyment in learning the Spanish language through listening, speaking, writing, and exploration of Spanish-speaking countries and cultures. In the toddler program, children experience the sounds and richness of the Spanish language through songs, games, and engaging activities.
