Montessori Young Toddler 12 to 24 Months

This page is your resource for all things young toddler! These Montessori and Montessori inspired posts can give you ideas of what your child could be working on between the ages of 12 and 24 months. These months can be a busy time and work will not always look still and quiet. Even so, 1-year-olds are one of my favorite ages! These busy little workers are fun and engaging! 

Since there is a lot of change during this year, I have broken up this year into halves. Click whichever age group your child fits into for information and inspiration.

When looking through these lists of articles, please remember that one of the most important parts of Montessori is to follow the child. Your child may not align perfectly with mine. Your child's interests may be completely different. Or they may be similar. Either is perfect. Trust your child, not this timeline! This is not meant to be a curriculum to follow just one family's example.
