Summer Fun for Your Little One!
Based on the Montessori philosophy of “following the child”, The Walden School is piloting a preschool summer program that allows preschool through kindergarten children freedom to learn, explore and interact with friends while delving into a weekly thematic study of: A Bug’s Life, Ooey Gooey, Space is the Place, Under the Sea, Down on the Farm and Creating with Color. A healthy snack will be provided each day.
You asked, and we listened! We are so excited for your little one to join Walden’s summer program! Each of the 6 weeks will feature a different and exciting learning adventure brought to life through cool crafts, outdoor activities, music, stories, fun snacks and much more. This one-of-a-kind Montessori based program will promote independence through play and will be run by our very own beloved Ms. Donna Goodwin! Each session runs Monday - Friday 9AM to 12PM and will include snack.

June 15 - 19 - A Bug’s Life:
Discover the exciting world of nature and the beautiful creatures who share it with us! Collect and identify bugs, make a bug box, go on an insect scavenger hunt, and see things through their eyes! Brave kiddos will love tasting “ants on a log!”
June 22 - 26 - Down on the farm:
Hop on the tractor and come on down to discover animals that live on a farm! We'll see how sheep, chickens, horses, pigs and cows all look, sound, and feel different. We’ll even end this week with a toe-tapping hoedown!
June 29 - July 3 - Creating with Color:
Watch creativity take on a life of its own through the beautiful colors all around us! We will experiment with a variety of art materials and be amazed as we combine primary colors to create one of a kind masterpieces. We’ll celebrate the holiday week with a red, white and blue birthday party!
July 6 - 10 - Under the Sea:
Let’s dive down and explore the deep blue sea! We’ll have fun in the sun as we learn about creatures like sea stars and crabs, and we’ll even build our own aquarium. Our week at the shore will end with yummy graham cracker sand and jelly fish treats at a beach party!
July 13 - 17 - Ooey Gooey:
Let’s get messy with exploding art, creepy-crawly crafts, painting with your feet, and creating sticky mixtures! Let your imagination run wild and get your slime on with gooey, indoor and outdoor concoctions. This fun week will surely be “hands on!”
July 20 - 24 - Space is the Place:
Take a trip on a rocket ship to see what adventures await in outer space! We will find ‘space rocks”, look at stars, create our own solar system and even build a space ship. Hold on to your helmets as we blast off to creative infinity and beyond!
