June Bugs Summer Program

Chelsea Day School

Bumblebees Toddler Group

16 - 22 months

The 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 experienced Chelsea Day School teachers. Children develop language and communication skills and build fine and gross motor skills. Adults stay for the duration and 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 (Bumblebees) is enrolled on a first-come, first served basis. Chelsea Day School siblings are given priority. The Bumblebees 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 2019 Toddler Group. This session runs for 2 ½ weeks from June 12 - June 27, 2019 from 9:30-11:00 each day. Families can register for 1-4 days each week, Monday-Thursday. Please complete your application online and mail or drop off all fees to secure spots for your child by April 22, 2019.

Entering 2s

Our Ladybugs group runs for 2 ½ weeks and is open to children entering a 2s program either at Chelsea Day School or elsewhere in the fall. Chelsea Day School students have preference as they become familiar with their new environment, and while we are happy to have a grown-up stay for the morning, separation is encouraged if your child is ready.

Our Ladybugs Program is full and we're no longer accepting applications at this time.
