2023 Summer Program Weeks

  • June 19th-23rd: Bugs, Birds and Buildings

    This week we will be exploring the wild life in our own back yard. From bird watching to bug safaris, we will be searching for and identifying every living thing we find. We will also be learning ways to help our environment; planting certain flowers for butterflies and bees to pollinate, and making bird feeders for our feathered friends.

  • June 26th-30th: Body, Bones and Brains

    Climb aboard the magic school bus as we dive deep inside the human body. This week we will explore everything we cannot see inside our bodies. From our bones to our blood cells, we will learn what makes us tick with fun songs and activities.

  • * Closed July 3rd-7th

  • July 10th-14th: Clouds, Colors and Chemistry

    Why is the sky blue? Why are clouds white? Where does the rain come from? What makes rainbows colorful? This week our meteorologists and chemists will find the answers to these questions while tracking the weather, observing the sky, and experimenting with colors.

  • July 17th-July 21st: Explore, Experiment and Examine

    Time to get hands on with science experiments, and chemical reactions. We will be taking part in numerous projects and activities that will be sure to captivate your young scientist.

  • July 24th-28th: Magnets, Motion and Matter

    Did you know that much like Earth, a magnet has a North and South Pole? This week we will explore and experiment to find out what this means. Our young scientists will work with magnetic forces, pulley systems, and levers, as well as, compare the different forms of matter; solids, liquids and gas.

  • July 31st-Aug 4th: Rivers, Rocks and Erosion

    Have you ever been to the Grand Canyon? This week we are going to take a deep look into how it was created! Students will be able to see, first hand, how erosion played a role in forming different land forms like the Grand Canyon.

  • August 7th-11th: Senses, Shadows and STEM

    This week we will partake in STEM activities that will involve making different creations that will produce a shadow. We will brainstorm ideas of possible materials we can use, create a design, engage in the experiment and analyze a conclusion. What senses do you think we will be using this week? Did you know there are more than 5 senses?

  • August 14th-18th: Bouncing Bubbles

    This week the children will engage in processes such as observation, experimentation, investigation and discovery, simply by studying bubbles!!! They will be exploring the world of bubbles hands on through different sudsy activities!

  • August 21st-25th: Mix and Measure (Final Week)

    Did you know that cooking is Science? This week we will be learning to mix and measure according to recipes. See that bread rise in the oven? You just witnessed a chemical reaction! Science is all around the kitchen and this week we will learn where to look!

  • * Closed August 28th-Sept 1st

Summer Program Reminders

  • All children should bring a snack and a labeled water bottle each day. Please remember we are a peanut/tree nut free environment.
  • Children who attend full day or extended day sessions should also bring a lunch and an additional snack for the afternoon.
  • Please be sure your child is wearing weather appropriate clothing and suitable shoes for outdoor exploration and play. Sandals, flip-flops, and Crocs are not allowed, as our playground is a natural environment of pebbles, sticks, hills, and rocks that will harm small feet!
  • Sunscreen should be applied to your child before school. If you would like an additional application of sunscreen in the afternoon, please complete a sunscreen permission form and provide a bottle of sunscreen to be kept at school, labeled with your child’s first and last name. Sunscreen cannot be stored in your child’s backpack, per Massachusetts Early Education and Care.
  • On water-play days, please be sure to label all your child’s belongings. This includes bathing suits, towels, water shoes, and hats.
