Summer Program

 

  

As a service to our enrolled 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.  Please note this is not a stand-alone camp; registration at VMS is a requirement.

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 child; providing a safe, supportive atmosphere in which each child can explore, create, and enjoy a summer that will leave them with many pleasant memories.

Throughout the summer, Villagers participate in the following activities:

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

2022 Themes Include

  • Nothing but Nature
  • Maryland, My Maryland
  • Summer Lovin'
  • Music Makers
  • America the Beautiful
  • Animal Fair
  • Around the World

Staff

The summer program is staffed by energetic, creative people who work at Village Montessori School throughout the year. Most are certified in CPR and first aid.

Snacks and Lunches

Villagers will need to bring snacks and a lunch. Milk will be provided.

Please do not send any items with nuts, including peanut butter, as we are a nut free school.
