Northlake Montessori servicing King and Snohomish County
We offer a full day program for children aged 18-30 months. This classroom
environment is designed to meet the social, physical, emotional, and psychological
needs of each child, while promoting grace and courtesy through the care
and respect of themselves, others, and the environment. This environment
was created for your child to have the freedom to explore, move, be successful,
and make choices.
Introducing basic Montessori work and values at this age gives children
the experience needed for a smooth transition into our preschool and prekindergarten
programs. Our toddler room is split into four sections based on the different
disciplines of learning. Social and emotional needs of your child are
met by their teachers modeling and guiding them through their interactions
with the environment and their peers. Problem-solving skills are enforced
as teachers promote talking out their issues and asking for assistance

Language skills are gained though circle time, songs, games, story boards,
puzzles, and family style meal time. Through language, toddlers learn
how to communicate and problem-solve with one another, as well as express
their feelings. The Sensorial Area heightens your child's awareness
of details related to color, shapes, sounds, and sizes. This area is based
on the five senses as children explore different sounds, textures, smells,
taste, and visual cues.
Practical Life provides items that teach the fundamentals of real life,
every day activities. These hands-on exercises include learning how to
grasp, pinch, scoop, and pour, which helps develop fine motor muscles
applied later in writing. Practical Life also supports independence as
your child gains skills such as dressing themselves, cleaning up after
themselves, and choosing materials on their own.
The Math Area is used to introduce your child to number recognition, one-on-one
correspondence, and simple counting (1-5, 1-10, or higher, when appropriate).
Toddlers are curious about everything and need to touch and manipulate
objects in order to learn. In the toddler math area, simple concepts of
numbers are introduced through songs, counting games, and manipulative
