Toddler Program

Mountainside’s Toddler Program is designed for the child who is 18 to 36 months old. Our specially prepared indoor and outdoor environment helps the young toddler to become an independent and engaged learner.


Young children go through sensitive periods of intense interest and growth, particularly for order and language. The Toddler community supports this growth through movement, exploration, and socialization.

In the Toddler community, we guide the children in Language Development (communication and vocabulary); Socialization (referred to as Grace and Courtesy); Movement (both fine and gross motor); Practical Life (food preparation and care of the classroom environment); and Functional Independence (care of the self and bathroom independence).

Our Toddler Program is offered Monday through Thursday from 8:30am-12:00pm.
