Budding Explorers: Ages 3 to 5
Full Day, 8:45 AM–3:00 PM
Half Day Option, 8:45 AM–12:00 PM
Weekly, June 26–August 4*
Budding Explorers spend the summer making new friends and learning how to do things on their own. A day for a Budding Explorer might start with reading a book out loud during circle time. Campers get to learn about a new theme based on the book, and, to nurture everyone’s curiosity, the group makes a theme-related craft. To encourage new friendships, campers eat snacks and lunch in the classroom together; open-ended play allows everyone’s imagination to take flight. Each Budding Explorer week is organized around a theme and our Budding Explorers investigate, inquire, experiment, and discover by themselves, with a friend, or in groups. Music, creative arts, water play, literature, movement and games, science and technology, and outdoor activities are all part of the fun for our youngest campers. Early childhood teachers and assistants work together and teach lessons in English to create a friendly and comfortable atmosphere conducive to learning, having fun, and making friends.
During the week of July 31-August 4, all campers and staff will build an enormous cardboard city in the school gymnasium.
