Summer Session 2018: June 4- June 29
West Hill’s Summer Session is open to all children of West Hill school age (Ages 2.4 years old to age 6).
Young children are naturally curious about the world around them and eager to explore topics that are relevant to their everyday lives. Our summer session offers opportunities for children to experience literacy, mathematics, science, technology and the arts through topics and activities that interest them, extend their thinking and promote exploration and discovery. Children celebrate learning through the excitement of discovery as they explore meaningful topics, formulate questions, and find answers to those questions through investigations and thoughtfully planned activities. Add singing, creative movement, water play, yoga, storytelling for a day filled with fun and learning! All themes incorporate literacy, math, social studies, and science skills in addition to attention to physical, social and emotional development.
