This 6 week program is divided into 3 sessions that run from June 17th - July 25th
***Our Pee-Wee Program Session 1 is filled at this time.
Our Summer Program promises a fun-filled summer for children ages 2.6 (2 years 6 months) to 5.5 years old. Our day begins on our spacious rooftop playground where children are free to play in the open space, try out our climbers and ride our tricycles.
As the day progresses, children may choose from a variety of fun and creative activities.
Our Summer Program offers three programs for children:
Peewee Program: Tuesdays-Thursdays, 9:00am-1:00pm
Basic Program:Mondays-Fridays, 9:00am-2:00pm
Full Day Program: Mondays-Fridays, add on 8:00am-9:00am, or extend the day until 4:00pm.
(For the latter two programs, children must be toilet-trained.)
The program is broken up into three two-week sessions throughout the summer. Children must attend a minimum of one complete session. There is a non-refundable deposit required with your application.
Toward the end of each session, children will visit exciting neighborhood spots. Past trips have included NatureMax movies, shows at the Marionette Theater, visits to the Museum of Natural History, the Children’s Museum of Manhattan and the Central Park Zoo.
Our program takes place in Morningside Montessori School’s sun-filled, air-conditioned classrooms. Our staff is made up of experienced teachers and young adults who return year after year to work with our children. (For MMS alumni, we offer a CIT program for ages 12 and up.)
We also offer an early bird option for those children who need to begin their day at 8:00. This option is open to children ages 3 to 5 years.
As well as an instructional swim program, we offer sprinklers to cool off the busy bodies of those who choose to stay at the school. The sprinklers are available on our rooftop playground in the early afternoon.
