WILTON, Conn. -- The Montessori School in Wilton will be celebrating its new Toddler Room and Infant-Parent Room with a ribbon cutting, school tours and breakfast.
The events will take place on Monday, Nov. 23, from 9 to 10 a.m.
The Infant-Parent Room, designed specifically for infants and younger toddlers to comfortably explore their capabilities, further illustrates the teaching practices of Dr. Maria Montessori.
Structured to foster independent growth and support infants in realizing their enormous potential, the room is used to teach parents and children about the importance of movement, language, care of one’s self and independence with sleeping and eating under the tutelage of a Montessori educator.
The new Toddler Room, the second at the school, features a knee-high kitchen with a working sink and oven, dinnerware, kitchen equipment, lifestyle workstations and furnishings that are designed with a toddler’s size in mind.
Aimed at introducing cognitive and physical challenges, Toddler Room amenities nurture independence and maximize learning, to develop confidence, autonomy and a stronger sense of self, that children can carry with them through all of life’s endeavors.
The Montessori School is at 34 Whipple Road.
