Toddler Program

Ages 2-3 years

Between the ages of 2-3, children are eager and ready to learn. Starwood Montessori School provides an age-appropriate education for toddlers to promote a gentle transition into our Primary Program. Using tools and lessons from the Montessori Method, toddlers in our program will have a great head start in their education as they learn to move, think, and discover new information independently. We have a warm and welcoming environment with teachers who are ready to provide guidance and support but our students are also widely encouraged to be the leader of their education, even at a young age.


Parents may choose from two, three, or five-day schedules for toddlers with either half or full days. Regardless of the program chosen, parents can expect a curriculum that improves concentration, coordination, and a sense of order while children develop their independence.

Montessori Curriculum for Toddlers

In addition to Sensorial and Practical Life materials, which encourage concentration and coordination, children in our Toddler Program enjoy a dynamic curriculum to build foundational skills while embracing their natural curiosity and high energy. The Toddler classroom allows students to move freely between lessons and work at his or her own pace.

  • Oral Language Development – Children, on average, learn hundreds of new vocabulary words and language skills by the age of 3. Therefore, our teachers promote this natural language development through rhymes, songs, and activities with fellow students. Social interaction is highly encouraged as children learn to use language more effectively. Toddlers are eager to interact, move, and show off their growing vocabularies.
  • Reading and Library Lessons – In the Toddler classroom, children have daily access to a small library of books to enjoy on their own or with the teacher. Toddlers also make weekly trips to the school library for interactive lessons to get to know the resources around them.
  • Mathematic Fundamentals – Toddlers use a variety of materials to build skills like ordering objects in a sequence, counting, and recognizing patterns to help them succeed in future mathematical lessons. At the age of 3, children are just beginning to develop mathematical skills, so hands-on activities are important for fostering new thinking patterns.

If you are considering a Montessori education for your child, an early start can be integral in his or her success throughout their Elementary and Middle School years. To schedule a tour of Starwood Montessori School and see what happens in our classrooms, call us at (972) 712-8080.

Our preprimary program is designed to provide a gentle transition for children entering the preschool environment. Through cooperation between parents and teachers, children are allowed to gradually become comfortable with their new surroundings and the concept of being separated from their parents for extended periods of time. The process also serves to build trust between teachers, parents, and their children, fostering the healthy growth and development of their learning environment.

Children in this stage of life are particularly sensitive to language development, sensorial stimuli, and movement. Here they are encouraged to develop physical coordination, enjoy music and rhythm exploration. Working with the children's natural tendencies shows them a respect for their childhood, and encourages them to enjoy learning.

A portion of the indoor environment is set aside for the exploration of Sensorial and Practical Life materials, designed to aid children in developing independence, concentration, coordination, and a sense of order as their mathematical minds begin to take shape in the third year of life. Children's literature is always available for students to enjoy on their own or with their teachers. In addition to having daily access to their own classroom libraries, Toddlers make weekly visits to the school library and participate in interactive library lessons. Oral language development is encouraged through songs, rhymes, and social interaction.

Toddlers may attend two, three, or five mornings or full days.
