At Oaks & Acorns, our Toddler program is designed to meet the needs of each child, while emphasising learning through play, movement; we make use of Montessori scientifically designed and manipulative materials. We are proud to offer a nurturing, beautiful authentic Montessori learning environment for children within the ages 18months-30/36 months. Providing indeed a “home away from home,”
We make learning individualistic; a one on one touch that is not compromised. we seek to follow each child and track their journey of individual development. These young children also participate in cooperative group play and lessons with other children. It is important to mention here that each day presents an awesome opportunities that equip the strengthening of language skills, refining and developing gross motor and fine motor skills respectively. We believe with Maria Montessori that a child should not be helped with a task that she or he feels and have confidence they can accomplish; therefore, encouraging independence and respect for the child is at our fore always. This indeed boosts the self worth and confidence of the child.
Our program is a mixed age classroom and children are given a free choice of work and are encouraged to proceed at their own pace under professional guidance. No child is in competition with the other; therefore, is not brought under undue pressure that does not produce a positive and enduring result. In the Toddler program, our environment is safe and produces children who are empathic, compassionate towards one another, passionate to learn and willing to explore beyond the ordinary task and materials presented. Social interaction and relationship is built to maturity using our curriculum. “Establishing lasting peace is the work of education; all politics can do is keep us out of war” – Maria Montessori
