The staff of the Montessori Toddler Group consists out of four pedagogical workers and a location manager.
A bright location amidst green surroundings
Montessori Toddler Group (MTG) is a school for toddlers (ages 2 – 4 years old) which is located at the red/ white building of Speeltuin Vereniging Kralingen and at Speeltuingebouw. The children can use the cosy classroom and the fantastic outside area which is next to Arboretum.
Maria Montessori’s motto was: ‘help me do it myself’. MTG’s ways of teaching are based upon this motto, the toddlers are motivated to explore the world using Montessori materials and by for example being free to use crafts materials, dolls etc. Motor skills are specifically being triggered to develop at the playground outside.
Primary school preparation
MTG’s goals are to let the children learn, play and develop themselves. Many of the group activities focus on stimulating interaction, so that the toddlers are able to explore new things and deal with peers at the same time.

There are 2 groups:
Our pre-school prepares the children for primary school. It is my task to guide the children through the (most of the time) Montessori materials which we use to help the children develop their own skills. We also have a big, beautiful, green garden and we often go on field trips to nearby parks.
