Toddler Daycare Preschool

Toddler Community Program

15 Months* to 3 Years

Children under the age of three join the toddler community where basic motor coordination, independence, and language development are fostered, and where individual personality is respected.  It is not a classroom; it is a nurturing social community where very young children learn to participate in a cooperative group.  It is a developmentally appropriate learning program with warm, nurturing and responsive care for children between the ages of 15 months* and 3 years.

*All children must be stable walkers.

While you are at work, the last thing you need is another distraction. Today, with so many families finding it necessary to place their children in daycare in order to accommodate their work schedules, worries about children often show up on the job. They don’t have to…. we have adapted our schedule to fit yours. This is not just day care; Montessori Academy is a private school offering quality child care to meet the changing needs of today’s families. This program was designed to meet the needs of dual working families, and priority will be given to those families that require full-day attendance. However, if there are openings we will consider half-day schedules. The Extended Hours Toddler Program is available on a regular or occasional basis as the need may arise. For those students who stay for lunch, we offer a wonderful lunch that the children help prepare.  Our meals are made on site sans processed foods and with the harvest from our organically grown garden.

  • Full day – 7:30am to 5:30pm
  • Half day – 8:30am to 12 noon– We consider alternate scheduling if space permits
