our vision

At Lily Pad Nursery & Preschool we are Montessori-inspired and developmentally-focused. Surrounding children with a variety of enrichment, stimulating the senses, and supporting a passion for discovery. 

Our Lily Pad Leap™ Curriculum mindfully infuses structured lessons into a child-led , Montessori-inspired environment. Children flourish in an environment that is language-rich, dynamic but accessible, warm and loving. Teachers encourage children to challenge their skill set each day as they transition from novice to master again and again.

We promote fine motor, gross motor, auditory discrimination, self-expression, and practical life skills through Montessori lessons and materials within our Little Duckies prepared environment – which we refer to as “the pond.” 

tadpoles

At this age, your child will be introduced to the order and function of a classroom. Our Montessori lessons include the importance of caring for yourself and caring for the environment. We also guide Tadpoles in their understanding of cleaning up their work centers throughout the day.

Daily lessons are designed by LilyPad’s primary program lead, a Montessori certified teacher, to prepare toddlers for entry into our Bullfrogs Pre-K program.
