Preschool summer

3-year-old children needing Extended Care, or who are still in diapers should sign up for our Preschool Summer Program.

Our Preschool Summer Program is designed for children who are 3 years old but are not quite ready for our outdoor summer camp. Our PS Summer daily schedule includes lots of time on our outdoor playground structure, splashing around our water tables, and running through sprinklers. We’ll enjoy engaging specialty classes including Fit Kidz, Sports, Yoga, Art and Science and, of course, we will have fun at circle time each day with stories and songs along with creative art activities like painting, music and dramatic play.

For more information about our Preschool Summer Program, please email Early Childhood Director Stephanie Walsh at swalsh@jccns.com.

KinderCamp Extended Care

KinderCamp Extended Care is available for 4-5 year olds Mon-Fri, 1:00pm-4:00pm and includes daily enrichments!  (3-year-old children needing extended care should sign up for our Preschool Summer Program.)

Extended Care Enrichments:

Monday: JUNIOR SPORTS WARRIORS

Run, jump, skip and hop with us during this active, fun-filled sports oriented enrichment. From old favorites (freeze tag, fishy fishy cross my ocean) to obstacle courses, this enrichment will cover it all! Please be sure to send your child to camp in sneakers.

Tuesday: KinderCamp Art Gallery

Make some space on your walls! During this creative enrichment, you child will explore different art techniques and styles, and use of a wide array of mediums. Water colors, clay creations, and beaded jewelry are just some of the fun we have planned!

Wednesday: HIP HOPPERS

Move, groove, jump and jive with our own resident dance instructor, Olivia Sousa. Each week she will teach the children contemporary dance steps, as well as incorporating stretching, yoga, and a cool down. Dancing with the stars has nothing on us!

Thursday: MUSIC IS INSTRUMENTAL

If your child loves Musical Adventures, they are going to enjoy Music is Instrumental! Your child will make/create a variety of their own musical instruments to play to some of our favorite tunes and new ones too! Get that music room ready, the band is playing!

Friday: IMAGINATIVE ILLUSTRATORS

Let’s bring those books to life with our awesome illustrators! Each week we will explore an array of fabulous books and the children will bring a page of the book to life with their own illustrations for a collaborative creation!
