Mommy and Me

Little Gems Montessori will be offering their first Parent and Child (Mommy and Me) Program. Classes are offered once a week.

Parent and Toddlers 

This program will cater to children 12 months to 30 months. The toddler and the parent will get to be in a prepared environment that meets the needs of these individuals.  Weekly topics that would be covered – language acquisition, fostering independence, Care of self – dressing and undressing, toilet training, self-feeding, discipline and self-control. The sessions will also cover ideas for preparing the home environment for your active toddler and support your child’s development.

The parent will be with the child for the entire session, while the child works with the Montessori Materials, participates in circle time activities, enjoys arts and crafts, learns to serve snack for himself, and plays with other children in the playground. It will be an opportunity to make new friends, find like –minded parents and toddlers for play dates, and learn about child development, Montessori Method and practice.

Stepping Stones

This environment will be for children 2 ½ to 3 ½ years. This intro session will be an ideal step for parents and children who are ready for a structured pre-school program. It is a great way to try out the Montessori Method, or to slowly transition your child from home to school setting.  Each week, we’ll explore the different areas of a Montessori classroom. We’ll start off with activities that focuses on the development of small muscle control, co-ordination of movement, care of environment, grace and courtesy skills and care of self, this includes activities lessons on dressing and undressing, use of bathroom, simple food prep and  self- feeding. Then we will introduce the materials related to the five senses, which helps the child to refine their perception on dimensions. Also there will be lessons on exploration of arts, music and movement.  Lastly we’ll introduce the materials that develop early literacy and number skills.

The parent will be with the child at all times during the session as he explores this new environment. At the end of the session, you will be well prepared in the Montessori principles to implement it at home and also help your child to transition into our Montessori program.

The classes will run for 6 weeks and will be for hour and a half. Call for tuition details….
