In addition to our in-person Summer Program, we will also be offering a Virtual Summer Program as an option for those students who will remain at home this summer.  The Virtual Summer Program will run for 11 weeks from June 15- August 28.

For $125 a week (with discounts available for registering for multiple weeks), your child will be able to participate in a 45-60 minute virtual live session, Monday-Friday. These live sessions will provide age-appropriate activities and lessons such as Circle Time, Story Time, Music & Movement, Yoga & Mindfulness, STEM, Spanish and much more!

In addition to the live sessions, you will receive approximately 3-hours a day of engaging hands-on activities, which are based on our Montessori Links curriculum, to support your child’s continuity of learning at home during the summer months. On specific days of the week, children are also invited to join a live 45-minute Virtual Outreach Program with an outside partner for extra enrichment related to the theme for the week, such as joining a Cooking Class, conducting a mystery investigation, creating a self-portrait or designing and building a catapult.

This means you get 20+ hours of interactive live engagement during circle time, lessons, and hands-on activities!

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.
