Seton’s summer program, like the year-round program (3 – 6 year olds), is a warm and nurturing child-centered environment where children can choose from a variety of experiences throughout the day. Activities include: music and movement; arts and crafts with a sewing center and woodworking; cooperative games; small group project work, a large block building area, a library and listening center, a dramatic play area with dress-up and store-play; and an expanded table toy area with a variety of construction and problem-solving materials. All indoor activities take place in the naturally lit, spacious, and air-conditioned rooms.
Outdoor free and organized play includes such sport activities as: obstacle courses using special equipment; cooperative team games, and ball handling activities (baseball, soccer, and basketball.) Sprinkler-swimming at nearby parks is offered several times per week weather permitting.
Special highlights include weekly excursions to a variety of neighborhood venues. Throughout the day, activities and events are integrated and balanced with quiet times and active times. A mid-day meal is provided in the dining room at noon, and there are daily snacks.
The dates for the 2010 Summer program are TBA but will be posted later this spring.
