Age & Toileting

Age & Toileting


This program accepts children between the ages of 3 and 5 years. The child must turn 3 by December 31st of the school year. All children attending the nursery must be toilet trained, as we have no change facilities.

Sometimes children are not ready to attend a nursery program even when they have reached the appropriate age. Our experience and training as Early Childhood Educators help us determine whether your child is ready to be successful and happy in the nursery setting. The staff will notify you when your child seems unable to make an adjustment to nursery school. We may suggest that your child be removed from the program until he/she has had more time to grow and develop. This should not be thought of as a failure on your part, your child’s part, or our part. Children develop at their own unique rates and therefore may be ready for nursery school at different times.


Children are encouraged to use the bathroom independently, however the nursery staff is available at all times to assist children, when needed.
