HotH Lunch Time Chat Series: The Independent Toddler


Why And How To Help Your Toddler Achieve Independence!

“Help Me to Do It Myself.”- Dr. Maria Montessori

At House on the Hill we believe that nurturing a child’s ability to be independent is both empowering and necessary. Encouraging independence in children from a very young age, helps develop children who are confident and full of joy. Plus, an independent child means that you have less tasks on your plate! So how do you enable your toddler to proudly say “I did it all by myself!”?

Join Mount Sophia Principal, Ms. Marilyn Ow and Principal of our Hollandse Club campus, Ms. Sunshine Goh, as they discuss the importance of independence for young children, how we encourage this skill at House on the Hill and how you can start fostering it at home with Montessorian principles.
