18 Months - 3 Years
Wild Spirit Education's Toddler classroom is designed to be a gentle transition from home to school. Our environment offers your child a peaceful, nature-based program in order to encourage their natural development.
Wild Spirit Education's Toddler program is based on self-directed activities, hands-on learning, collaborative play with a strong focus on our natural environment.
In our classroom, children make creative choices in their learning, while the classroom and the teachers offer age-appropriate activities to guide their progress. Children can work independently,
in small groups, or with their teacher to discover and explore each learning area.
The Toddler program is specifically designed to cater to the needs of young children by creating an environment that encourages sensory-based learning. The focus in this age group is to guide them through their growing need for independence, order, sensory exploration, movement, and language.
Activities are positioned around the room for toddlers to choose independently. The activities change and evolve as the child grows physically, emotionally, and intellectually.
"The goal of early childhood education should be to activate the child's own natural desire to learn."
- Dr. Maria Montessori
Consistency is very important at this young age. At Wild Spirit Education we always strive to work with parents' needs and schedules. We have a two-day minimum attendance commitment. Parents can choose how many days a week (based on availability) and if they would like a morning or afternoon session. This program is not a drop-in program, schedules must be arranged at registration. If you need to switch a day one week or change your schedule please just contact the office to make arrangements.
The Toddler Program runs Monday - Friday
Morning Session drop off is available starting at 8:45 am
The program is from 9 am - 12 pm
with pick up between 11:45 am - 12 pm
The afternoon Session is currently unavailable.
Transition to the Casa Program - Preschool / Kindergarten - occurs at the end of each school year. Children entering the Casa Program are typically 3.5 - 6 years of age.
In January, we hold Parent / Teacher meetings when we can discuss if your child is ready to move from the Toddler to Casa Program.
