2020 Summer Mini-Camp & Camp in a Box were so much fun!
Our Mini-Camp consisted of 3 successful weeks of fun in our outdoor car wash, playground time, sprinklers, story time, art, and individual snacks. A Friday Shabbat celebration rounded out the week. Groups are small, exceeding the CDC’s health and safety guidelines, and health checks are performed twice daily.
Our Camp-in-a-Box Virtual Camp consisted of 3 weeks of online activities done at home, story time, and Friday Shabbat celebration presented by our experienced teachers.
For Twos through PreK’s, 2021 Camp Dates TBD
Families may opt for 6 or 7 weeks (weeks need not be
consecutive). Camp activities are based on weekly themes such as exploring the zoo, the ocean, celebrating the USA, food, sports, bugs and insects. Activities include arts and crafts, music, use of our two playgrounds, classroom center exploration, outdoor Kiddie Carwash, and water tables. Two year olds can attend 2 days (T/Th), 3 days (M/W/F), or 5 days (M-F) from 9:00am to 11:30am. Threes and PreK’s come 5 days (M-F) from 9:00am to 1:00pm.
How Our Program Works
Our early childhood education programs are tailored to provide the best learning experience for your child. We have amazing veteran teachers with a strong commitment to our program and years of experience with children of all backgrounds, strengths, and challenges. Our school designs programs based on a collection of strong early childhood developmental philosophies such as Piaget, Montessori, and Reggio-Emilia with an added foundation rooted in Jewish values and traditions. We teach children how to be kind and caring people by developing the social skills to do so.
Each classroom provides a dramatic play center, science center, block center, fine motor games/toys center, and an art center. Children have opportunities to investigate fine motor activities, arts & crafts, science tables, block construction, writing centers, and literature centers.
