Toddler Group

Student ArtworkThe Summer Toddler Group is for children ages 16 through 22 months and a parent or caregiver. The goal of the group is to provide a setting where adult and child can play with age-appropriate toys in the company of other toddlers under the guidance of seasoned Chelsea Day School teachers. Children develop language and communication skills and build fine and gross motor skills. Adults learn positive, developmentally appropriate techniques for guidance and discipline. Skills are developed through art activities, story time, snack time, open play, singing songs, and modeling behavior of teachers as they interact with children.

The Summer Toddler Group is enrolled on a first-come, first served basis. Chelsea Day School siblings are given priority. The Summer Toddler Group Program is a class offered to the community and is separate from the admissions process to Chelsea Day School. For more information regarding admission to the preschool please visit the Admissions page.

We are now accepting applications for the Summer 2017 Toddler Group. This session runs for six weeks from June 19, 2017 through July 27, 2017. Please complete your application online and mail or drop off a check to secure your child’s spot.
