Explorers - Toddlers (12-18 months)
Welcome to the next step on your child’s journey… toddler time! Our Windsor Montessori program provides your budding toddler with all the skills and activities to help them not only meet the challenges they’ll face over the next few months, but enjoy every minute of it.
Your toddler’s at an age in which they’re observing the world around them through entirely different eyes. They’re learning to solve problems, develop new skills and experience the world in an entirely new light. That’s why we introduce them to creative arts, language and social skills. Not only to help guide them through this new territory, but to have fun while doing it.
But we also know that is the time in their lives which can affect them more deeply on an emotional level. And different toddlers have different needs. That’s why our Imagine Nation focuses as much on developing their self confidence and self esteem as it does laying the foundation for a love of learning that will last throughout their lives.
Even though we plan our weekly lessons in advance, there’s plenty of time for spontaneity at Everley Rose. We believe the best way to encourage learning is to keep it fresh and exciting, so that each child looks forward to them with the same enthusiasm our teachers have. This also allows our teachers to get to know each child’s strengths and weaknesses so they can personalize each lesson to be inclusive and enjoyable for everyone.
Each daily report we provide for you will update you on their learning in addition to meals, naps, toilet training and daily activities.

A Guide To Early Toddler Development
Here’s some of the specific achievements you might expect from your toddler at this age. Our staff are trained to look for and notify parents when these achievements are met. Keep in mind that each toddler develops at their own pace, so don’t expect these to be anything more than a rough guideline:
- Carrying large toys or several toys while walking (12-15 months)
- Learning to walk alone without assistance (12-26 months)
- Pulling toys behind while walking (13-16 months)
- Learning to run or jog stiffly (16-18 months)
- Climbing up and down from furniture without assistance (16-24 months)
- Scribbling spontaneously (14-16 months)
- Following simple one or two step instructions (14-18 months)
- Repeating words when prompted or heard (16-18 months)
