Our AMI Toddler Community provides a beautiful environment designed for children from 14 months to 3 years. Practical life skills that promote independence, including toileting, are learned in a peaceful, home-like setting with the aid of patient and respectful teachers. Each of our toddler teachers hold their AMI diplomas and have 10 years or more of experience in a toddler classroom. An AMI trained teacher, or guide, directs children through the Montessori toddler curriculum where their motor coordination, independence, and language are cultivated. In this respectful and nurturing environment, the very young child experiences his first exploration of the world beyond home.
