Our summer session is a relaxed extension of the regular school year, where the children will have the opportunity to continue to work in the prepared classroom environment with Montessori materials, along with outside activities, art, cooking projects, gardening, water play, and neighborhood walks & visits to Allsopp Park, etc. for the older children. We do not plan to make extensive trips away from the school, except for the Junior Elementary Class*. Any field trips for the Juniors will be scheduled by the teacher and will include visits to the swimming pool**. With the exception of any scheduled vacation time, our staff will be the same as during the school year. This, along with a relaxed schedule, makes for a pleasant and stress- free summer for your child.
The last day of school is Thursday, May 26, 2022. We will be closed Friday, May 27 for teachers’ workday and Monday, May 30 for Memorial Day. Summer School will start on Tuesday, May 31. School will be closed Monday, July 4 in observance of Independence Day. There will be no school or childcare provided on that day. The last day of summer school will be Wednesday, August 31, 2022. The 2022-2023 school year will start on Tuesday, September 6, 2022.
We do not offer “drop-in” child care. Your child should be at school by 9:00 am at the very latest; otherwise, we will assume he/she is not attending school that day. Tuition is due and payable in advance on the first of each month. Accounts not paid on the 1st will be assessed a late charge of $35.00. Credit will be given for vacation (2 weeks maximum) if advance notice is given. Any child with an unpaid tuition balance after the 15th of the month may not continue to attend summer school until the balance is paid in full. There will be no exceptions.
Please dress your child comfortably and safely for summer school. Appropriate footwear must be worn.
Inside or No shoes will be worn inside, all children must have non-slip house shoes for indoor wear and appropriate footwear for outside. Open-toed sandals, flip-flops, “jellies,” clogs, etc. are a danger when children are running, playing, and climbing, and we ask that you not send your child to school wearing such footwear. We will not be held responsible for injuries if appropriate footwear is not being worn.
Sunscreen and, if necessary, insect repellant, will be applied if permission is given – please see the Application Form. You may send your own sunscreen and/or insect repellant if you wish; otherwise, we will use what is on hand at school. Please label your child’s sunscreen/insect repellant with his or her name.
To enroll your child for the summer session, please fill out the Application Form and return it to school, along with the registration fee and a current Immunization Record. If your child is new to Children’s House, please complete additional forms as listed below (pages 3-5.)
