Summer Scapes and Summer Days

It’s a great place for your preschool children ages 3-7 years and toddlers 12 months to experience the joys of summer!

Summer Scapes

This delightful, eight-week summer program for preschool children is organized into four, two-week sessions. The traditional morning work cycle of Montessori lessons is observed and a garden is available for nature study, reading, and outdoor work. In the afternoons, a specialist teacher offers small group experiences in areas such as yoga, Spanish, or special art lessons.

Throughout the day there are choices in a variety of areas: nature study, arts and crafts, stories, poetry, cooking, gardening, creative movement, games, and music.

Each class of the Summer Scapes childcare program is staffed by an experienced teacher and an assistant. A snack is available in both morning and afternoon sessions. Full-day students will bring a lunch. Of course, a nap/rest period is provided according to individual need.

Summer Days

Our Summer Days Program provides eight weeks of nature study, gardening, movement, painting and clay, stories, cooking and food preparation. Music and outdoor play are offered for the very young, on the same schedule as Summer Scapes.

The Toddler Community staff will be present throughout the day, with nap and outdoor time according to the regular Toddler Community schedule for continuity.

There will be the opportunity to paint, work and play in the water, set the table, learn songs and poems, and generally become aware and increasingly skilled in the use of the toilet and in self-care.

The optimal pattern is to attend all of Summer Days. The schedule of sessions and days is set to parallel Summer Scapes to make planning easier for families with children in both age groups.

Summer Days Ages: 12 months or securely walking to two-and-a-half or three years, and currently enrolled at Northwoods.
Class size is limited to 12.
