Our Programs

Our Toddler Program

Our toddlers participate in small group activities that will teach songs, colors, counting, alphabet, etc.  They will also begin learning through various sensorial activities including:  puppets, puzzles, art and more.  Montessori education will begin to prepare them for skills that they will use in preschool and beyond.

Practical life materials are a big focus as they help the child to develop concentration and coordination skills.  Sensorial materials enable your toddler to continue to explore their environment through their senses.  And many of the manipulative activities that are part of the toddler environment will incorporate counting skills, recognition and memory skills, etc.  Arts and crafts; dramatic play; and music and movement activities will round out their learning experience and keep this busy age group engaged.

Skill Building 

Potty training will occur during your child’s toddler years, and the teachers will take into account each child’s individual signs of readiness and work in partnership with you to ensure that this experience is a successful one for your child.  Sign language will continue to be used at this age as well as helping each child to find the words necessary for communicating their needs.

Presented with Care

In the Montessori Philosophy, great care is taken in selecting quality toys and displaying them with purpose.

What is Montessori?

The Montessori philosophy is built upon the idea that children develop and think differently than adults, that they are not merely "adults in small bodies." Dr. Montessori advocated for children's rights and believed that children need guidance to develop themselves into successful adults.

Meet the Toddler Teachers

The goal of toddler teachers is to continue to provide a safe environment for each child to explore while offering opportunities for them to gain confidence in various self-help skills such as eating at a table, sleeping on a cot, playing and sharing with their peers, communicating their wants and needs, etc.

A Space for Exploration

In the toddler classroom, your child will have the opportunity to explore their environment freely and experience the various materials in the classroom such as musical toys, blocks, age appropriate manipulatives, along with small and large muscle materials and activities.

Helping Your Child Explore, Grow, & Learn

Outdoor play and other large muscle opportunities are valuable parts of each child’s learning experience.  Toddlers will be enjoying outdoor play all year around, and when Minnesota weather interferes – indoor large muscle activities will ensure they have a positive outlet for their abundant energy.

We offer Soccer Shots on-site!

Parents have the option of enrolling their children in Soccer Shots, a local program that is focused on providing age appropriate skill and character building through sport. Kids will participate in soccer shots on-site once per week, with a parent viewing session at the end of the season.

What Our Families are Saying

The teachers and staff at All Stars are truly amazing. They give individualized care to each of our children and meet them where they are at socially and academically. All the teachers know all the kids and it is a truly welcoming & supportive environment where my kids have been able to grow and thrive. 

I have been very happy and impressed with the services and flexibility at All Stars. The teachers create an in-home atmosphere to help kids adjust and feel comfortable in their environment. The staff also have many fun activities for kids and families.

We can’t count how many times we’ve said how thankful we are for the wonderful teachers at All Stars.  We see our daughter learning and growing while being nurtured.  She can sense (and so can we) how you all really care.
