Program Overview

Welcome to Tiny Scholar, a Montessori toddler program and our youngest group offering at Little Scholar! 

Our program is designed to meet the exploratory, social, and emotional needs of toddlers and aid in holistic development using the Montessori framework. Children explore their environment to develop physical, social, cognitive, and emotional skills.

Our part-time model prepares children to practice independence and manage separation anxiety— a perfect stepping stone on the way to preschool. We are proud to partner with parents in our supportive community to share resources, information, and early childhood experiences together.
