Boundary Road Location

Three floor childcare centre offering infant/toddler, preschool, kindergarten. All day & half day programs available.


The Toddler Community serves children who are comfortably walking (approximately age twelve months) to age three, in a small and intimate group of eight children and two trained staff persons. We offer many program options, including either half-day or full-day child care. The environment conforms to the physical needs of the children, both in the size of the furnishings and in the opportunities for motor development. There is a movement area, practical life area and language area.

In this setting the children come to feel that the classroom is their own special and peaceful space, where they can play a meaningful role in their own care and the care of their environment.

The classroom is carefully prepared to meet the unique needs of this age. All furniture is sized to allow maximum independence.  The toddler materials are designed to be attractive and inviting to the children.
Social interaction with other children, development of language skills, care of oneself and the environment, food preparation, music and movement activities are integral to the Montessori toddler experience.

Through careful observation of the children, the teacher (“guide”) is able to link each child to whatever aspect of the environment that will enhance the child's physical, psychological and social development at any given time.

The guide is always looking out for the "sensitive periods" when the child demonstrates an almost obsessive interest in a particular activity that is essential to his or her growth.


We are easily accessible via public transit.
