Montessori Tides preschool understands a toddlers need to feel loved and secure with the adults responsible for their care. In order to better serve those needs, all new enrolled toddler students will receive a picture of their new teacher in the mail to help familiarize the child with their face. Once this step has been established the child’s teacher and teacher assistants offer a home visit. This visit established the first attachment between toddler, teacher, and their parents within the child’s familiar environment. Once the child experiences this dynamic bond at home, this will help the toddler to transfer this same comfortable feeling from the home visit to the Open House and finally, into the classroom. In the words of Ms. DeAnne, “All these steps are purpose to help build a healthy relationship with the child.”
