Primary Summer Program

Summer Primary (3-5 year olds*)

*Children who have finished kindergarten should enroll in the summer elementary Trailblazers program.

Summer at The Children’s House is the perfect blend of our prepared Montessori environments and a distinctive flavor of summer fun. Campers enjoy a variety of engaging activities within the familiar Montessori environment and curriculum. Several weeks will include special guests including story tellers and musicians!

Children from our four school year classrooms unite in two primary classrooms for the summer. TCH alumni and children from the greater community are also accepted based on availability.
