Age 0-3 is characterized by the presence of an Unconscious Absorbent Mind, " a mind that is constantly absorbing impressions from the environment without knowing that he is doing so and without willing it."
The O.B. Montessori Toddlers Program centers on the philosophy of "Helping the Child Help Himself" through the Montessori Prepared Environment. The Toddlers Room simulates a house where the child is given freedom to work independently in a Prepared Environment that is complete, functional and orderly, thus maximizing his potential to the fullest. The furniture and materials are also designed within the child's level that would enable him to develop independence in movement and language in preparation for preschool education.
