Our Summer Program promises a fun-filled summer for children ages 2 1/2 to 5 1/2 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.
You may also sign up for Instructional Swim (optional for the Classic or Full-Day Programs)*
Session 1: June16th - June 27th
Session 2: June 30th - July 11th (closed on July 4th)
Session 3: July 14th -July 24th

Classic Program:Mondays-Fridays, 9:00am-2:00pm
$870 per session.
Full Day Program: Mondays-Fridays, 9:00am-4:00pm.
$995 per session.
* Instructional Swim is an additional $165 per session
You may also add on early birds 8:00am-9:00am.
(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.
Each session includes an in-house trip and an outside trip. These trips support the science focus of the sessions.
Past trips have included NatureMax movies, 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 optional 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.
