Summer Programs

Help your child maintain their reading skills over the summer! Or give your little one a head start going to preschool in the fall! Our exciting summer programs are for both emergent and independent readers. Even reluctant readers will get motivated through:

  • Week long, thematic-based camps with lots of reading, writing, discussion, and multi-sensory letter play that engage students in their own learning!
  • Literature-based activities including games, storytelling, poetry, songs and dance, with hands-on materials to expand reading and language skills.
  • Developing link between reading and writing with responses to literature, while gaining confidence and enhancing skills.

And best of all: WE MAKE LEARNING FUN!
