Canyon Heights' new Mommy and Me program is designed to bring toddlers and parents together and help give parents the experience and confidence to guide their fast developing toddler's discovery of a rich and fascinating world. In its own beautifully set up room and using the same approach and some of the same Montessori materials proven in our award-winning Preschool program, our Mommy and Me is neither a babysitting service nor a play program, but unique cycle of learning designed to take advantage of child’s sensitive years when he can absorb information from an enriched environment. The environment changes weekly as we “follow” children and identify their needs. Because their parent or parents accompany them on this journey, they are able to extend the cycle of discovery and development at home.
