Toddler: Ages 1 to 2 1/2

Toddler Ages 1-21_2 Years (1)I believe in "it takes a village to raise a family" and I am blessed to have Montessori Ivy League Academy part of my village. Not only has my soon to be two year shown an immense amount of interest in learning but has also practiced the life-skills at home that are taught. I feel that she is not just a student but also apart of a family. The feedback and open communication shows the true interest in my child to grow as a whole person. I feel that we are partners in my child"s growth. I would recommend to anyone. - Charlene S. (Parent)
