    Toddlers work with material in the following subject areas: practical life, sensorial, language and art. In the practical life areas, children develop independence, concentration, coordination and a sense of order. Toddlers participate in both music and Spanish classes each week. Learning social skills is a big part of a toddler’s development.

  • Practical Life Studies

    In the practical life areas, children develop independence, concentration, coordination and a sense of order. “Container play” and other sorting activities promote fine motor skills as well as laying the ground work for self-sufficiency. Children are encouraged to take responsibility for their own toys and tools which gives them a greater sense of independence. Montessori Guides help children develop competence, concentration, and coordination which builds their confidence further. Knowing they are capable of success increases children’s satisfaction and motivates them well.

  • Social Skills

    Learning social skills is a big part of a toddler’s development. Great attention is given to helping the children identify their feelings and express them appropriately.  Interacting with their peers and working together on projects helps children learn more about cooperation, teamwork, and friendship. Skills like these are invaluable in creating a positive environment throughout life. Socialization also helps children acquire language, learning different words each day. Our Guides provide a nurturing setting for the children to grow, build relationships, and learn how to regulate their own emotions more easily.

  • Creative Movement

    Students participate in activities to improve their coordination and balance. They learn to explore the world of creatively expressing themselves with their bodies. Through dance, they become more self-confident and imaginative.

  • Physical Education

    Students participate in weekly P.E. where they are taught the importance of physical fitness and encouraged to achieve their individual potential. Team games are introduced with the focus on teamwork and the development of healthy attitudes to both winning and losing.

  • Montessori Classes Nurture Your Child's Passion for the Fine Arts

  • Fine Arts Program

    Pebblecreek offers an exceptional program based on the teachings of Carl Orff, Zoltan Kodaly, and the philosophy of Dr. Maria Montessori. Children are exposed to music from around the world. They sing, move, and play musical instruments. Music can be heard throughout the day, as the children sing, work, play, and grow in their school environment. Children learn about singing and body rhythms first, as Kodaly encouraged, so they know they can be musical and independent. When ready, the children explore and play Orff instruments, which Carl Orff designed to meet the needs of young instrumentalist. The music program’s goal is to awaken musical creativity and guide well-balanced children toward artistic development.

    Foreign Language

    Students learn Spanish using the Touch Spanish program created by Pebblecreek co-founder and primary guide Mrs. Gabriela Wilcox. Touch Spanish engages children in conversationally-based language instruction. The children begin with songs and learning to name things in their environment. After the oral skills are mastered, the students progress to reading skills.

    ” Never help a child with a task at which he feels he can succeed. “
