Class Structure

The Montessori School of Downtown offers an excellent program for each toddler, which is conducive to one's total growth. The toddler is under the individual attention of a trained teacher. The teachers are warm and loving and they deal with the child as a whole, which includes contributing towards his or her emotional, physical and intellectual development.
Our goal is to educate children in a loving, safe and orderly environment, where they can master their muscle coordination. They also work on body image and movement, as well as a sense of order, good habits, confidence and concentration.

Message from The School
Open communication between the home and the school is of utmost importance in the life of a child.

We shall keep you abreast of your child's progress regularly and also through our newsletter.
