Toddler 0-3 years old

Toodler 0-3 years old

Toby says, September 29, 2020

0-3 is such an important time of development for numerous reasons. The child moves from completely helpless and passive to independent and active. Montessori discovered many sensitive periods during this time and based a great deal of her early years philosophy on these periods of intense concentration and development.

Simply put – they are periods of a childs’ development when they are drawn to or experience a need to repeatedly engage in an activity. His actions fulfill inner developmental goals, we as adults can often find hard to appreciate. The danger with these sensitive periods is that they have a timeframe and if not met fully by their actions and experience, the child moves on regardless of how refined the particular skill or need has been developed. Thus the opportunity for unbelievably fast and confident development has been lost.

Montessori devised numerous activities and a suitable environment for these periods to be explored and fulfilled.

Children of this age change so fast and have such diverse interests and internal goals

that a traditional playgroup offers little to allow the children to explore their environment and needs,
with the skills needed to maximize their potential.

At Kids Channel we understand the importance of Montessori’s findings (which are backed up by up to date scientific study) and have devised a fantastic course which offers opportunities in all areas. Kids need time at this age to explore and ‘play’  –  if you can help them build focus / interest / concentration and a mastery of their fine and gross motor skills – they are primed for all their future learning. A strong foundation is the basis for any growth, be it a building , a tree or a child. Remember 0-3 is such a prolific time of development – it is easily wasted – but also easily enhanced.

Toby says, December 16, 2020

There is a lot being discussed about the benefits of play – the needs of the child and the benefits to overall development.

For now I will look at the pros and cons of play for a toddler (0-3Yrs) for his natural and fulfilled development.

Toddlers change and develop more than at any other time of their lives. Their brains are constantly growing and making connections based on what they see and do.

Play can certainly fulfill and give chance for development, but to optimize their chance to develop to their potential Montessori created an environment where the child has more freedom to explore and learn unaided. Montessori gives children a guide on how to behave, how to interact with others and how to foster focus, concentration and refined skills needed to move forward successfully.

Toddlers need lots of repetition in their play (to fulfill and refine their interests and skills) and also exposure to new and varied experiences to help them start to make sense of the world they are exploring. Classes and their daily schedule should offer these two important factors for the child.

They need :

Time to explore

Time to listen

Time to think before actions

Time to build hand dexterity

Time to experience new things in a safe environment

Time to watch

Time to repeat

Time to achieve by themselves

Time is the key here

Time and an understanding of what children need to develop successfully.

Our Montessori Toddler classes cover all aspects of a childs’ inner needs and allows the childs’ carers to understand more about How, Why and When children need attention and guidance and how to provide a suitable environment and build a positive relationship with them.
