See Why Parents Love Our Toddler Classroom!

Alefiya from Toronto

“The online sessions have been a great way to not only keep Idris connected to his teacher but also ensure that he’s not losing what he’s already learned and is able to learn new things as well. As working parents we were so happy and delighted to have these sessions because we were worried we weren’t able to do enough for him. Every little bit helps and we are really grateful for it!”

Sofia from Switzerland

I work in education and I am passionate about Montessori style even if I am also open to other pedagogies. I have done an exhaustive search to find some tailored programs for my son, considering that I would be working from home and would like to give him fun learning experiences and activities, but none matched my expectations until I found MFMS. We joined the virtual program when Bjorn was 14 months and since then I have been a great fan to the programs but in particular to the tailored activities and care provided by the team and educators. He is now 32 months and we plan to continue with the virtual MFMS in a long term.

Delana T.

Awesome Montessori Experience for my 2yr old Toddler. She looks forward to her class every week and ensures I remember also! I was in Montessori as a child and remember the academic and practical benefits I received so knowing my toddler is able to experience Montessori virtually has been great! As a mother of a toddler and baby it gets pretty busy. We appreciate Ms. Katelyn’s patience and lovely personality, her knowledge and methods has made the virtual learning enjoyable. Thank you Ms. Katelyn and MFM! 

Here’s a quick preview of our interactive Toddler class!

Our Toddler Montessori program is designed to unlock their full potential and lay the foundation for a lifelong love of learning. Here are some of the exceptional benefits your child will experience in our program:

Holistic Development

Montessori education fosters holistic development by nurturing academic, social, emotional, and practical life skills in toddlers.

Independence and Confidence

Toddlers in Montessori classrooms learn to make choices, solve problems, and work independently, boosting their self-confidence and independence.

Individualized Learning

Montessori environments offer personalized attention, allowing each child to learn at their own pace and style, promoting individualized growth.

Hands-On Exploration

Through tactile, sensory-rich learning experiences, toddlers engage with Montessori materials and activities, enhancing their understanding of abstract concepts.

Lifelong Love of Learning

Montessori education instills a lifelong love for learning as children are encouraged to explore their interests and passions from a young age.

Learning Outcomes

Numeracy Skills

Toddlers in Montessori classes learn to count and understand numbers through hands-on activities, enabling them to grasp numerical concepts, including counting from 1 to 10, recognizing and understanding quantities, and even beginning to explore more complex numerical concepts.

Language Development

Montessori Toddler programs emphasize language development, helping children acquire vocabulary, improve their communication skills, and eventually start forming sentences and expressing their thoughts effectively.

Practical Life Skills

Toddlers gain practical life skills such as pouring, spooning, buttoning, zipping, and cleaning up after themselves. These skills promote independence, fine motor development, and a sense of responsibility.

Sensorial Exploration

Montessori classrooms provide a rich sensory environment that encourages toddlers to explore and understand the world around them through their senses, enhancing their sensory perception and discrimination skills.

Why Choose MFMS Online?

Montessori Curriculum The curriculum is individualized to each child’s needs, each child is valued as a unique individual. Montessori cultivates independence building on developing daily life skills and encouraging hands-on learning.

Specialty Programs We have integrated specialty programs into our core program hours. These programs work hand in hand with what we feel strongly develops the whole child.

Food & Nutrition MFMS Online provides suggested meal plans that are healthy, delicious, and follow the Canada Food Guide recommendations for each age group through the HiMama App.

Security & Technology All parent communication will be done through the Hi Mama app or email. We will be utilizing Zoom’s in-meeting security capabilities ensuring that all virtual classrooms are secure, encrypted, locked, and password-protected. Families are screened for security compliance each day in our virtual office prior to joining our virtual sessions.

Fee Details

Fee payment is due on the first of every month (via e-transfer, Pre-Authorized Debit, Visa, MasterCard) before attending scheduled classes.

Changes or cancellations must be received in writing 30 days prior to the change.

Once class is scheduled, there are no refunds or rescheduling.

No deposits required!

How Involved Do I Need To Be?

In our experience, most children over the age of three require very little assistance, provided the daily materials are ready for their use at the start of class.

Gathering these materials should take no longer than 5 minutes/day.

Do You Record The Classes?

No. We have a strict safety policy to not record our children, which aligns with our philosophy that we apply to our brick and mortar school. If we were to record, we would first get the expressed consent from all parents.

Is Your School Accredited?

MFMS Online is validated by the Ministry of Education in the Province of Ontario, Canada to provide a private school education for children K-8. Our Ontario Board School Identification Number (BSID) is 668664. The Montessori philosophy is a globally recognized learning methodology.

Our brick and mortar school is a licensed childcare center in the province of Ontario. Our Virtual Toddler and Casa programs follow the same philosophy and curriculum as our brick and mortar school does.

We recommend you check with your local school board authority as to whether our program will be recognized by them (we can help you with this).

What Are The Classroom Sizes?

We believe in small classroom sizes. All of our virtual classrooms have a maximum capacity of 12 students. In our experience, anything above this compromises the quality of education.

Are Virtual Classrooms Safe?

Yes, all virtual classrooms and private tutoring sessions take place through Zoom and are secure, encrypted, locked, and password-protected.

All parent communication will be done through the Hi Mama app or email to provide weekly schedules/calendars, list of materials needed for the scheduled activities, parent correspondence.

All of our instructors are subject to rigorous reference and police vulnerable sector checks.

We also have policies in place to keep class safe:

  • Video must be turned on with appropriate name labelling
  • Any family member that is present must be accompanied by a MFMS enrolled child (if either of the above are not met, we remove the person from the meeting)
  • Families are screened for security compliance each day in our virtual office prior to joining our virtual sessions
Your Title Goes Here

Will My Child Pay Attention?

95% of our enrolment will sit on their own after a few practice trials. This is why we offer a free two day trial for your child to practice taking part in our program. Once your child learns how to navigate Zoom, we have seen that most children sit on their own through the whole program, provided they have all the materials ready at the start of each class.

I Dont Think My Child Will Sit Still

We understand that every child is different, and some are more active than others, therefore we ensure that our subjects transition every half hour to maintain your child’s interest.

Our teachers are very well versed with teaching online and at maintaining conversations with your child and the other students in order to keep their attention. We also include on the spot gross motor activities and spontaneous show and shares during each class to help focus our students’ attention when needed.

Lower elementary students may have longer subject periods, however the above noted principles still apply.

What Are Your Teachers Credentials?

All of our Montessori teachers are MACTE (Montessori Accreditation Council for Teacher Education) certified, with both extensive in-person and online teaching experience. Specialty classes are provided by industry experts.

Disclaimer

If your child is not in school, and you intend to homeschool him or her, you may not use MFMS Online as proof of enrolment for your local school board unless otherwise expressly stated by us while your child is enrolled in one of our full-time (5 day /week) virtual school programs.

The part-time and tutoring MFMS Online programs are only intended to be used as an aid to boost your child’s learning, and do not serve as a replacement to your child being enrolled in school.
