“At the age of two years the child has a need for walking…But the child does not want to get anywhere, he just wants to walk, and to help him truly, the adult must follow the child…The child walks with his eyes as well as with his legs, and it is the interesting things on the walk that carry him along.”
– Maria Montessori, “Education for a New World”

The Montessori School of Lake Forest Toddler Program maximizes the development of young children through meticulously prepared environments. An adult with Montessori “Assistants to Infancy” (birth-three) training conducts carefully planned activities which lead the Toddler age child to build sensory-motor skills, high self-esteem, inner security, and abiding habits of concentration.
