For this age group, we understand that it is usually the first time a child spends away from his/her parents, and it is truly important that this transition be made as smoothly and as caringly as possible.
For this age group, we understand that this is usually the first time a child spends away from their parents, and it is truly important that this transition be made as smoothly and caringly as possible. For this reason, we have created a safe, cozy “home away from home” for your children. Our Sun Program introduces your child to a fairly structured day with stimulating activities, group interaction, and the chance to be inquisitive as he or she begins to talk, walk, and explore.
Curriculum activities, projects, and explorations are based on real-world sensory experiences. We spend a big part of the day singing, dancing, laughing, playing, and exploring, indoors and out. These activities encourage interaction with other children to develop important social skills.
Play creates opportunities for early learning that capitalize on children’s natural curiosity and exuberance. It provides the foundation for emergent literacy, numeracy, and inquiry skills in authentic, meaningful ways. The environment in the Sun classes encourages deep learning through play.
At Summerhill we have five separate classes for children of different ages and needs. All five classes are from Monday to Friday, from 8:45am to 2pm.
We also offer an extended day program designed for children with parents who both work, providing a relaxed environment after a day in class with creative and nature-oriented activities.
From 2pm to 3pm every day we offer after-school activities starting from the K3 (Half Moon) Class age group and up, while the youngest K1–K2 (Sun) Classes can be in babysitting to assist parents who work.
