River Tales Blog

The early childhood years are an exciting and wonderful time in a child’s life, but it can also be a challenging time for parents. Parents often approach the staff at Toms River Nursery School with many of the same excellent questions about children ages four to six, and we thought all of our parents could benefit from the information. The River Tales Blog will tackle topics such as potty training, transitioning into a new school year, how to help a child understand his or her emotions just to name a few. This will be a bi-weekly blog and we are always open to suggestions for future blog ideas. Email any requests to cclark@tomsrivernurseryschool.com.
