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.
