Summer Camp

Summer camp is designed for students ages 4-7 but most  activities are developmentally appropriate and enjoyable for children up to age 9. Summer is an opportunity for children to take a break from the academic school year and do what children do best: play  & explore. Spontaneous learning opportunities and child-initiated activities will replace our usual planned learning and teacher-initiated play. During summer camp, teachers will focus on developing children’s social skills including turn-taking skills, conflict resolution, negotiating, manners, and self-help skills.
