Our Toddler / Twos Program

“Education is a natural process carried out by the human individual, and is acquired not by listening to words, but by experiences in the environment.” -Dr. Maria Montessori

Each toddler is treated as a unique individual, encouraged to exercise their growing autonomy and expanding language in carefully prepared, safe, and orderly surroundings. Our planned environment space promotes exploration, independence, order, and freedom of choice and movement.  It is carefully designed with defined learning areas, and open to allow plenty of room for social interaction and activities required for the toddler's growth and brain development.

At Bright Horizons, we love the “No!” attitude of toddlers and twos because it’s an assertion of autonomy that leads to new developmental opportunities like increased body control and expression of feelings. Only when children feel a sense of personal power (“I can affect things”) are they ready to move to the next critical task of realizing a sense of competence (“I can achieve things”). As active learners and problem-solvers, children develop genuine confidence and a sense of who they are in the world.

What Parents are Saying

Our greatest advocates are our families.

"Under the guidance of you and your faculty, Brittany has grown into a bright, loving, and generous child. Marc & I have met such wonderful people and felt an integral part of our children’s education because of the community you foster."

Our Curriculum Components

“The environment must be rich in motives which lend interest to activity and invite the child to conduct his own experiences.”
-Dr. Maria Montessori

  • Sensorial Sensory experiences are designed to facilitate hand-eye coordination, small muscle control, and spatial relationships.
  • Peace Peace lessons give toddlers the skills to work through anger and frustration in a positive way, while encouraging tolerance, cooperation, and respect for others.
  • Art Toddlers experiment with many different art mediums and are encouraged to focus on educational gains learned through the process, not the product.

Rice Play

You Will Need:

1 or more pounds of uncooked rice, large plastic bowl or container, wooden spoons, measuring spoons, plastic cups

Directions:

Put rice in the container, along with the cups and spoons. Place the container on the kitchen floor for your child to practice spooning, pouring, and scooping. Encourage your child to think about what he is doing by saying things like, “How many scoops does it take to fill up the cup?”;“What does the rice feel like?”; “How is it different from the rice we eat?”

Tip:

Place the container on a tray or piece of cloth -- rice will likely spill on the floor.  Since rice is slippery, keep a broom handy to sweep the floor often   and explain to your child how important it is to keep the rice in the kitchen. This activity will give your child the opportunity to be with you while you are working in the kitchen -- he can even pretend to cook dinner!
