The Toddler Programs, which encourage cooperation and language development, are for children from 18 months to 2.9 years old.
Play is encouraged to help develop social interaction among children. Development areas such as fine motor and gross motor skills are also enhanced by daily participation in music, art, stories, dramatic play, blocks, and group projects
Reading aloud and singing everyday enhances the toddler's language. The teachers promote self-help skills by modeling appropriate behavior.
- To develop a sense of trust to adults other than their own parents.
- To develop basic self help skills and language skills allowing the child to benefit from the time in a group setting.
- To learn appropriate ways to socialize with peers.

Seaside Nursery School's teachers serve as resources and facilitators, providing support and information to both children and parents.
Our toddler caregivers have a combined total of 35 years experience. Annually our personnel go through at least 20 hours of training including First Aid and CPR. With this experience and education behind them, caregivers have the knowledge to plan daily activities that are age appropriate and fun. We expose our toddlers to all areas in the hope that they will reach out and explore on their own. Children thrive when their teachers are deeply interested and committed to each of them.
We work closely with our parents. We believe parents are our partners.
