Maria Montessori, the founder of the educational method that bears her name, observed that young children possess "absorbent minds". They are capable of learning all manner of things – enriched vocabulary, eye hand control, listening skills self-care and social graces, athletic and artistic activities – with relative ease.
The key to the child's success during the early learning years is having access to an educational program that responds to their insatiable curiosity and desire to explore the world. The hands-on nature of Montessori learning affords the toddler an opportunity to absorb the knowledge and skills that build self-esteem, self-discipline, socialization, and creativity.
Each child at Little Hands Montessori is treated as an individual, endowed with personal abilities that yearn for discovery, development, and constructive expression. Our respect for the child leads students at our school to respect the needs, rights, and feeling of others within the toddler community. Children here feel safe, secure, and honored for who they are.
