Corvallis Montessori School’s Young Children's Community - The Toddler House - will serve children who are comfortably walking (approximately age 15 months) to 3 yrs, in a small and intimate group of 8-12 children and 3-4 trained staff persons.

The toddler’s most important work - and the emphasis in the Toddler House - is the acquisition of language, along with the development and refinement of gross motor coordination. The Toddler House provides a nurturing environment for this growth to take place.

The Primary classrooms are for children from 3 to 6 years. In a mixed-age environment, children spend three years in the same classroom getting to know each other and their teachers. There are 25 children per class. One Montessori teacher and one assistant guide aid the children in a rich array of activities.

Children must be completely potty-trained. The class is 5 mornings per week. Prospective parents may choose to enroll their child in our Half-Day Primary Program (8:30am - 11:30pm) or Full-Day Primary Program (8:30am - 3:00pm).
