Summer Program

  

As a service to our families, Village Montessori School offers a summer program, Little Villagers. This camp-type program provides location and staff familiarity at a slower, summer-oriented pace. Knowing many of our families enjoy taking summer vacations, our program is offered on a weekly basis.

Philosophy

Our summer program follows the same philosophy as Village Montessori School, LLC.

The staff of Village Montessori School is committed to providing a kind, loving, and nurturing environment for our students and their families. We acknowledge we are helping to form future citizens, and understand and are dedicated to the fundamental right for respect each person within our school community deserves. Our primary goals are the development of the whole child, building partnerships with parents and developing a sense of community.

Our Program

Summer is a time for children to make friends, play, develop their creativity, get in touch with nature, and learn new games and sports. We intend to provide such a summer for your child within our Montessori environment, which continues to encourage grace and courtesy.

Little Villagers is dedicated to meeting the individual needs of each camper; providing a safe, supportive atmosphere in which children can explore, create, and enjoy a summer that will leave them with many pleasant memories.

Throughout the week, Villagers participate in the following activities:

  • New theme every week
  • Arts & crafts
  • Music & movement
  • Water play
  • Outdoor walks and adventures
