18 months - 36 months
At Beverly Hills Academy, we embrace Montessori education, promoting independence, following directions, and caring for the environment. Our toddler community focuses on motor skills, coordination, independence, and language. Our students work at their own level across various subjects, choosing activities after receiving lessons. We prioritize personalized attention and maintain a daily routine while offering special classes.
The program in the toddler community is designed to be developmentally appropriate for children between the ages of 18 months to 36 months. The environment is characterized by warm, nurturing, and responsive care. Montessori-certified teachers and assistants maintain a low teacher-to-children ratio of 1:4, ensuring that each child receives individual attention and guidance.
Within this setting, the teachers and assistants observe and actively work with the toddlers. They provide guidance as the children engage in their "work," which refers to the various activities and tasks that are designed to support their growth and development. The focus is on creating a supportive and enriching environment where toddlers can explore, learn, and develop their skills at their own pace.
Respecting the individual personality of each child is a fundamental aspect of the toddler community. The Montessori approach recognizes and values the unique characteristics and abilities of each child, allowing them the freedom to develop their own interests and abilities within a nurturing and structured environment.
