How do I know when my child is old enough to join the next age group?
Montessori Classes are prepared for a mixed age group of students and the environment offers developmental materials for all ages of children in the class. Or class age groups are listed by starting age. For example, if your child is 15 months old on the first day of class, they will be in the Montessori Baby Class.
What is the structure of a Montessori Class?
Classes are 60-120 minutes long during which…
- Children enjoy a self-led work cycle when they choose their activities from the shelves and workstations.
- We have a group snack time.
- We have a group music circle when children and parents sit together and enjoy songs in English, German, and every other language present in the group.
What if we miss a class?
Everyone can make up one missed session per course term, depending on availability. See Sick Policy & Holidays
What kinds of Montessori materials are available in the Toddler Class?
Materials in the toddler playgroup vary from simple to complex. The kinds of activities include:
Art | creative activities include painting, drawing, stamping, modelling clay, cutting, gluing, and lots more!
Eye-Hand Coordination | wooden puzzles, color sorting, bead threading, nesting dolls, coin box… So many materials in the class support use of fine motor skills and eye-hand coordination.
Food | children can prepare a small snack or pour a drink of water at any time during the class; we also have a group snack time at the table near the end of class

How do I pay for the class?
When you receive your email invitation for an upcoming term, you can choose your class days and times from our registration page. Then you will complete your tuition payment online and receive a confirmation and pdf invoice via email.
Why do you have mixed age groups?
In all Montessori schools there are mixed ages so younger children can learn by observing older children and older children can enhance their skills by teaching the younger ones. A balanced combination of older and younger children is a very special part of the Montessori classroom. I have written a blogpost about this in more detail HERE.
