Summer Camp


We are pleased to offer a summer camp program that is staffed by our experienced early childhood professionals. The program includes such developmentally appropriate activities as arts and crafts, music, literature, nature activities, water and sand play, walking field trips, picnic lunches (for four- and five-year-olds), cookouts and cultural arts activities including live theatre and musical performances. Large motor activity is available in our full-sized gym and on our well-equipped, multilevel playground as well as occasional excursions to nearby Sunset Park.

The three-year-old camp is open to continuing and new students who will be entering the three-day nursery school class in September. The four- and five-year-old camp is open to continuing and new students entering the four-year-old fall class, and to children who have just completed the four-year-old class who will be entering kindergarten.

Registration for summer camp begins in January and is ongoing until camps are fully enrolled.
