While in the classroom, emphasis will be on Montessori Educational Exercises for Early Learners with special preparation for reading and number work. Older children will enjoy relating reading and number work with their field trips and their experiments in Science and Biology. Those having difficulties with math and reading can benefit a great deal from this program.
The All Day Children will have the opportunities to widen their experience even further through filed trips to the United Nations, The Natural History Museum, the Planetarium, the Aquarium, various zoos and museums and much more!
Our rainy day activities will include cooking, basic gymnastics (floor exercises) and elocution.
All will enjoy beginning swimming instruction and water play for the younger children on hot days.
Weekly trips for pony riding or pony cart riding and horses for the older children can be arranged for a special fee.
So that the children may have a well-rounded experience, we have planned excellent programs in Music and Movement, Arts and Crafts, and Language, culminating in an End-of-Camp Talent Show.
Children enrolled in the Summer Program will be given preference for September Admission. Children find the Summer Program an exciting experience and an easy transition between home and school.
The Summer will also give those unable to attend the Fall Session an opportunity to experience at least a short Montessori term. For young children who need to be phased in, summer is an excellent time to do so.
