Summer 2017

The Morningside Summer of Science Program is designed for children who are between 2.5 to 5.5 years of age by the start of the program. We offer one program option for toddlers ages 2.5 - 3.5, and two program options for children ages 3.0 - 5.5 (must be fully toilet trained). 

Our summer program takes place in Morningside Montessori School's sun-filled, air-conditioned classrooms. Our program is rooted in cultivating a love of learning through fascinating scientific exploration, artistic creativity, and physical exercise. Our staff is comprised of experienced teachers and young adults who return year after year to work with children from our community. See program options below for child-to-teacher ratios. All children have access to our 3,000 square ft. terrace playground, equipped with playscape, tricycles, and sprinklers to keep their busy bodies cool during the warm summer months. In addition, music, yoga, and arts & crafts are built into the curricula. 


Session 1: June 19 - June 30 

Session 2: July 3 - July 14 (we are closed for Independence Day)

Session 3: July 17 - July 27 (we are closed on July 28)
