Snacks will be provided. Students will be divided into three-year age groups for different parts of the day, to ensure all activities are developmentally appropriate.

Summer Days are filled with fun and educational time spent on weekly themes. To learn more about our Summer Days weekly themes and see newsletters from last year's program, read below.

WEEKLY THEMES

Summer Days Week 1 - Sun and the Earth

Summer Days begin as we welcome sunny faces, make sun catchers, study the relationship between earth and our most precious star, make sun tea, and much more. As with all weekly theme units, our students will explore each theme through many different age-appropriate activities, materials, books, and projects.

Summer Days Week 7 - Food

Gardens contain lovely flowers and intriguing critters, but best of all, gardens can feed us. So in this 7th week, we will look at foods across the globe, try our hand at cooking, and do some fun edible experiments.

Summer Days Week 8 - Gardeners of the World

In our final week, we look inside, to cultivate the Gardener in us all. Not just the gardener who puts a seed in the ground and pulls crops at harvest, but the gardener who tends lovingly to the world. We will explore ways that we nurture, plant seeds of hope, and create the world around us.
