Greetings Toddler families! This month, we will begin to explore science through the toddler experience! In our Montessori classroom, this means conducting simple experiments where we start to realize that our actions effect our environment. We will focus on “what” is happening during our experiments rather than the “why” or the “how”. This way, we keep things simple and begin to learn about the way our world works.
