At Teeter Tots Montessori, we care and educate children ages 30 months to 5 years old. We are a Montessori program and use the materials, method and philosophy. We believe children are active learners. They need an environment were they can safely explore using all of their senses. Their learning grows from concrete to abstract, with many connecting steps in-between. Our rich learning environment is a child centered, nurturing, non-competitive place where children are willing to risk to stretch and grow. Children develop self-confidence and healthy self-esteem when they are accepted and respected as individuals and are part of a group. Children learn to accept each others differences and the ways in which they are the same in our culturally relevant program.
