Upper Elementary hiked to Broadlands Pizzeria for a take-out lunch outing. Apparently, the food is a 10 out of 10 and dipping fries into blue cheese dressing is out of this world delicious;)

In the Montessori toddler community, children have access to increasingly-sophisticated Montessori activities. Each activity is matched to the appropriate moment in an individual child's development and designed to strengthen the integration between her mind and her hand. These activities support the toddler in learning to understand cause and effect, solve problems, make choices, and pursue goals, as well as giving her plenty of opportunities to practice increasingly coordinated movements.

Children this age use their senses to explore the world. They enjoy the beautiful sensorial materials and learn to compare and contrast, to discern slight differences, and to place things in order. Both artists and scientists need the ability to really look at what is in front of them: to notice small details about the world that have significance for their work.

If you have a swing, is it hung at the child’s level or does it require you to pick up your child each time? Consider lowering it to their level so that they can safely get in and out all by themselves!

At Guidepost Montessori, our classrooms are designed to support your child. We know that real confidence comes when your child sees that they are capable of doing real tasks and achieving meaningful goals. As new challenges are met, day after day, your child learns that they can figure things out! They can overcome difficulties, solve problems, and affect the world around them.

Whether your child is helping a classmate clean up after a spill, or working through multiplication problems, your child is learning that both they and their work are valuable and meaningful.

The Montessori elementary community features a long work cycle with few or no interruptions. With fewer daily interruptions, such as bells for recess or regimented lesson intervals, students are able to follow through with persisting with challenging tasks at hand. They are not “saved by the bell” in the middle of a challenging math problem, for example, and have the opportunity to experience the discomfort in a challenge and yet experience the joy following sustained effort and follow through. Children with repeated opportunities to persist in difficult tasks develop greater stamina to work. When a child exerts effort to produce quality work, a sense of healthy pride, self-worth, and satisfaction is kindled.

"A child's needs are simple, and a happy childhood needs only simple surroundings." - Maria Montessori

Don't have the newest gadget, or the hottest toy on the market? Let go of that pressure to give your child more stuff! Happiness is not found in the things we fill our lives with but in how we live fully in each moment, embracing the challenges and enjoying the ride.

INDEPENDENCE! A true cornerstone of the toddler room. One aspect of independence is self care, and it can be as simple as changing shoes without help. See how Z here changes into his classroom shoes one at a time before putting away his outdoor shoes. Now he's ready to start his day!
