Summer Camp Time!

Even though it is February, it is time to start thinking about Summer Camp! We have been very busy these past few weeks planning some great summer fun; and we are happy and excited to present our upcoming summer camp program.

N.M.S.’s summer camp is a great way for your child to have fun while learning in a familiar environment. Our children continue to grow, learn and explore in a comfortable atmosphere, while they meet new friends, get to know the teachers better, and get to know our school routine. The summer camp is a fun-filled program with strong Montessori AND educational overtones. All the children who come have a great time while learning lots of new information!

This year we will be breaking the children up into groups and having them rotate through 2 to 4 different programs (depending on your child’s hours) per day. Each area will offer, lessons, projects and lots of information.
