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.

"We would like to thank everyone at Bright Horizons for everything you have done for Lilly and our family in the last year. She came to your school as this small toddler and we are proud at how she has developed into this child who enjoys learning and believes in fair play. At Bright Horizons, it has been just the type of education we would have wanted for her."

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.

Clean-up Classification

You Will Need:

Paper bags or storage boxes, descriptive labels that say things like, "Things with wheels," "People," "Animals," etc.

Directions:

Place an appropriate label on each storage container and introduce them to your child, pointing out which one is which. When it is time to clean up, ask your child to put toys in the appropriate containers. While your child is trying to decide which container to put a toy in, talk about its properties. Say things like, “Does a cow have wheels?”;  “What needs to go in this bag?”; “What is different about these toys?”; “Here is another car, where does it go?”

Tip:

Once your child recognizes each container and knows what goes in it, this activity can become more challenging if you use bags instead of the normal storage containers.
