Queensway West Montessori offers an enriched Toddler Program, focusing on the following areas:
- Practical Life
- Culture, Art and Books
The Montessori classroom is set up so children can explore the materials in a comfortable, supportive environment. Children learn by observing the teacher and each other, which teaches students to respect each other and the materials. This includes learning how to take turns.
Every day, we have Circle Time were we update the calendar and weather, sing songs, share stories and present new materials. Participating in Circle Time is of the highlights of the day for the children. Our welcoming, inviting, and learning-focused environment allows the children at our school to have a positive experience. We enjoy being a part of their growth!
