Preschool and Kindergarten children are welcome for a half day program, 9:00 am - 12:00 pm! These students will be taught by certified elementary teachers and enjoy many hands-on, planned activities throughout the morning, tied loosely to the year's theme. Counselors will also be an extra set of hands and eyes with each group, and a snack will be provided. All activities are held on Saint Vincent College Campus. Space is limited! Register today!
Children going into 1st through 4th grades will have the opportunity to participate in academically and creatively theme-based experiences, led by certified elementary teachers. These hands-on interactive courses will happen in a half-day offering. The other half of the day the children will be involved in an “immersion” experience, with guest presenters, planned events, and group opportunities. A counselor is scheduled to remain all day with the group of children, helping them throughout their experience. The program is one week, 9:00 am - 4:00 pm, Monday through Friday, includes lunch and a snack, and all activities are held on the Saint Vincent College Campus.
