Kira Kira (2 - 3.5 yrs)

Kira-Kira Montessori Program for Ages 2-3 Years

Once our children join the Toddler group, they develop basic motor coordination, independence and language skills. The Toddler materials may look simple, but they are precisely designed based on years of observation, experiment and study.

We understand that toddlers take a hands-on approach to life. They imitate elders in all their actions. Our educators and prepared environment will safely support your child’s drive to do things alone, and develop their confidence, sense of order, sensory exploration and a sense of competence. The environment is language-rich, with adults using proper nomenclature. Adults also support toddlers in communicating with each other.

As with any Montessori environment, the children’s activities are set out to entice the child to discover and explore. In this learning environment, children don’t only work independently but also learn by observing others, explore freely, and express their curiosity and creativity. A self-care area fosters toilet awareness and independence in maintaining personal hygiene (such as learning how to wipe one’s nose and wash hands independently). A sleeping area with individual floor beds that allows toddlers to exercise freedom in preparing for rest and allows them to get up independently once rested.
