Eighteen to Twenty-Four Months

At 18 to 24 months, toddlers become more and more interested in the every day workings of your family. While they may start to use shelf materials more, most of their day will still involve practical life and language building opportunities! This is another very fun age as toddlers develop their own interests, and skills.

Montessori friendly activities, toys, and spaces for toddlers ages 18 to 24 months.

Here are some articles for young toddlers, ages 18 to 24 months. These are roughly organized by category and from youngest (18ish months) to oldest (24ish months). But just because my child did something at one age, many of these activities are appropriate during this age range. Remember, please to follow your own child, this is not meant to be a strict curriculum but one family's example.
