How do you encourage your toddler to talk?

Posted on by

Toddlers enrolled at Twin Parks Montessori Schools learn new words everyday. It is not because the adults are talking all the time, it is because they engage in shared conversations, read to and observed. Observation enables the adult to see and interpret subtle non-verbal cues from the child and respond appropriately. Teachers also use pictures and objects to teach new vocabulary.

Read this interesting passage by Janet Lansbury, REI Associate and Parent/Infant Class instructor to learn more.

We are thankful for our Twin Parks Montessori School Teachers!

During the summer months Twin Parks Montessori School administrators prepare for the next school year. Today I was writing my back to school letter to our teachers, searching for inspiration and words of wisdom to help fire the passions in them. I feel so fortunate to work with such a dedicated, special group of adults whose personal goal is to guide the education and development of young children. I found this TED video about Rita Pierson, a 40 year veteran teacher who says every child needs a champion. We definitely have champions at Twin Parks!
