Field trips at a Montessori school in Maryland.

Summer Program

Summer Program

At Children’s Manor and Children’s Magnet Montessori Schools, our Summer Program curriculum is based on weekly themed activities, enrichment programs, and field trips to engage children in a fun, educational way. 

In order to safeguard the health of our students, we will not be offering field trips this summer. Instead, we will integrate more outdoor activities and increase the number of in-person and virtual Outreach Programs, working with a variety of local partners to further enrich our Summer Program themes.

In addition to our in-person Summer Program, we are also offering a Virtual Summer Program as an option for those students who will remain at home this summer.

Research has shown that summer learning loss (the loss of skills and knowledge over long summer breaks) can impact students of all ages. Our educational summer programs play an important role in continuing the growth and development of a student’s social-emotional and academic skills and knowledge.

Summer Enrichment Programs

We offer a variety of enrichment programs throughout the summer, including art, music, sports, technology, and yoga.
