WEEK 4 – June 21-25
Garden Helpers: Ants, and Beetles, and Worms, Oh My! This study will expand upon children’s natural curiosity in the different bugs and insects they find in the garden, and how these creatures help our plants grow and thrive.
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 and 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.
