Ages 5 to 12 years
Our goal for the summer child care program is to provide your children with a safe, healthy, and nurturing environment while learning and having fun. We will be providing fun and exciting activities in all of our centers.
Theme 1: Community Quests
June 3 - June 14
This topic focuses on deepening connections within us and within the community around us. Activities aim to build self-awareness, agency, confidence, and forge a stronger sense of community within our programs. Children will explore the benefits of teamwork by accomplishing big tasks together and celebrating their achievements as a team, creating a sense of spirit and unity within each of our programs. Mindfulness with respect to our communities, our environment, and our personal wellbeing will also be a focus within this study topic.
Theme 2: Globetrotting Treks
June 17 - June 28
Children will learn the importance of being part of a growing world community as they engage in activities that inspire curiosity about the world. We will investigate cultural celebrations, geographical wonders, climate variations, environmental differences and diverse animal habitats, all designed to build an understanding of and greater connection with the amazing world around us. Children will adventure through this study, forging the respectful attitudes and mindsets of a global citizen, ready to take on the future!
Theme 3: Nature Ambassadors
July 1 - July 12
What does it mean to be an ‘Environmental Steward’ or an ‘Ambassador of Nature’? This study will be about challenging our children to take ownership and responsibility for caring for the Earth. Children will form an understanding of their carbon footprint, and what they can do to preserve natural resources for future generations. From recycling to gardening to the active investigation of nature’s attributes, children will get hands-on with activities that showcase their stewardship for the environment.
Theme 4: Adventures in STEM
July 15 - July 26
In our current fast paced and technology driven times, we want to provide children with tools to lead them down the path of innovation. STEM activities, featuring science, technology, engineering, and math, help to build critical thinking and creativity, while facilitating curiosity and exploration for becoming the next generation of changemakers! This study topic will inspire children to identify problems and forge solutions, as they get hands on exploring materials, creating tools, making predictions, and testing ideas through experimentation.
Theme 5: Cultivating Creativity
July 29 - August 9
Prepare to get creative and revel in all things imaginative! Throughout this study, children will embark on a journey of creativity, exploring painting, sculpting, building, design, music, and theatre as exciting points of interest Children will explore different mediums as they engage in projects intrinsically powered by their own interests, skills, and styling pursuits. Cultivating creativity will be all about expressing individuality, building self-esteem, and appreciating the processes! Even our youngest learners will actively design, create, and construct with age appropriate mediums focused on the process of engagement!
