Come and enjoy a wide range of fun and educations activities with our summer preschool program! Your child will rotate through multiple activity units each day, such as art, sensory play, story time, music, math or science activities, imaginative games, guided play and much more! Even better, our flexible "pick your days" registration allows you to plan around your summer events and activities.
The Summer program is for students with a minimum age of 2 as of Sept 1, 2022. We have separate classes with different activities for young PreK students, older PreK students, Kindergarten students, and first/second grade students.
Each day, we separate into separate classes and classrooms. We have 6-10 students in each class and a lead instructor for each class. Students are grouped with other children of similar age and skill level so that younger twos are not with older students. We do try to keep friend groups together for summer!
There are 9 weeks in our Summer program. Classes meet 4 days a week, Mon-Thurs from 9:00 am -2:00 pm. Students register for individual days- sign up for one or two weeks, or come once or twice a week- your choice. Cost is $45 per day, SAVE $3 with early registration- $42 when you register before June 1! Class dates and themes are as follows:

Absence and Make-Up Policy
It is an unfortunate fact everyone is occasionally sick. It is courteous to call and let us know, with as much advance notice as possible, of any absence due to illness. We ask that ill students remain home to avoid spreading the illness to other students and teachers. Children need to be without a fever for 24 hour to return to class. Children who are vomiting should not have vomited in the last 36 hours. Due to the small class size and limited spaces available, we regret that we cannot offer make-up classes for the summer session.
There are NO REFUNDS for any reason once you have registered for a class. If your schedule changes, we are happy to move you to different class if there is space available, or give you credit for another camp or class. Due to the popularity of the preschool program, we must have 7 DAYS NOTICE to make class changes. We are not able to reschedule cancellations or absences with less than 7 DAYS notice.
Snack / Lunch
Parents are asked to pack a lunch and a snack for their child. We may occasionally have other snacks as part of our curriculum, so be sure to let us know of any food allergies. Please also pack a spill-proof cup with a drink for your child as we do not have a water fountain. We ask that all drinks be in a spill-proof cup to avoid accidents. All cups should be labeled with your child’s name.
When packing lunch, please make sure it is "kid friendly" - have items pre-cut and items such as oranges already peeled (please do not pack whole oranges as children cannot peel these themselves.) Also, please do not pack items such as shredded cheese, rice, or sunflower seeds that are very messy for your child to eat and make a big mess on the floor.
We do not require that children be potty trained to enroll. We will take regularly scheduled potty breaks during the day to help your child with potty training. Parents are asked to provide a diaper bag with diapers and wipes for children who are not potty trained, and to make sure they have a fresh diaper when they arrive.
Please provide an extra change of clothing (or two!) to have on hand in case of spills or accidents. Be sure to include extra underwear for children who are potty training. We do lots of messy art projects, so please wear OLD CLOTHES to class! We do not use smocks when painting.
Pick-Up / Drop Off:
Please bring your child to the classroom and sign in when dropping off, and let us know on the sign-in sheet if a different person will be picking them up. You will need to pick up your child from the classroom and sign out at the end of class. Parents may also choose to drive up in the lane at the front of the facility and we will walk your child to and from your car. We will not release children to unauthorized individuals.
