Summers At Springhill
Springhill offers a Summer Session filled with learning, fun, and exploration for the children. Our goal is to provide a wide variety of activities incorporated into the environment for the childrens enjoyment. Each week we will explore a new theme to help broaden the childs experience.
The Summer Session offers activities built around weekly themes which include arts and crafts, music, movement, cooking, games, gardening, storytelling and water play.
Our selection of programs supports the personal growth and development of each student. The Summer Session offers a variety of activities and a change from the normal Montessori curriculum. The summer session includes a range of fun and stimulating outdoor activities, music, cooking, arts and crafts, in addition to the continuation of your childs enrichment in a Montessori environment.
In addtion to the weekly theme related activities, Springhill Montessori offers the following sessions:
Fantastico! A fun learning experience where the children will practice essential Spanish words, phrases, and pronunciation. There will be plenty of games, songs, cooking, dancing, arts and crafts as we explore the Spanish language. This class is for beginners as well as those who have had some experience with the Spanish language. This is a great way to start the summer. 1..2.. 3.. uno, dos, tres.
Cooking with Children
Each child will prepare an individual serving of food for themselves and experience every step of the cooking process. During the class, the children will expand their math skills as they learn how to measure the required amounts for each ingredient. They will increase their knowledge of science by turning solids into liquids and they will enhance their reading skills during the review of the recipes. The Cooking With Children class allows the children to have lots of fun while learning how to prepare delicious food.
Yoga for Kids
At Springhill Montessori we believe that each child has needs that reach well beyond the physical aspects of their being. We provide yoga sessions for our students to help them nourish their body, mind and spirit. Teaching Yoga to children, helps them develop better body awareness, self-control, flexibility and coordination. Often children will carry these skills beyond class and into their daily routines.
Splish-Splash Day is every Friday during the Summer Session. On Fridays the children will need to wear their swim suits and bring their towel and undergarments to school in a bag. The children will have an opportunity to splash in wading pools and water sprinklers.
The Garden: Soil, Seeds, & Sun
Encouraging kids to work in the garden, provides many opportunities for expanding their knowledge of how things grow. Children will learn all about seeds and discover how the seeds grow into the foods we eat. They will learn about the different ways that seeds are planted in nature as well as how plants travel through their seeds. The children will discover how the plants in the garden need sunlight to grow and be healthy.
The summer session, is generally held from the first week of June through the last week of July. We always look forward to exciting Summers filled with exploration and adventure. If you have any questions regarding the Summer Session, please feel free to contact the school for additional information.
