Early Childhood at Portledge Summer Adventures is a fun and dynamic program for children ages 2-6 years old with lunch and snack included. Recognizing that each child brings an innate curiosity and sense of wonder to his or her learning, the Early Childhood program builds upon these organic learning processes to encourage collaborative learning. We will continue with weekly themes that will engage your child in Reggio Emilia inspired classroom settings, while also adding new options to your child’s schedule. Each day, your child will engage in indoor and outdoor play, which is the most effective method for promoting growth and learning during early childhood. Daily activities include water play, art, music, and yoga. This summer, each classroom will also be equipped with a sensory bin that builds upon the theme of the week. Children can bring in items from home for others to investigate. New this summer, COOKING will be added to our weekly activities. And, of course, each week will wrap up with our Special Visitor.
Many children enjoy spending the entire day at Summer Adventures. To meet the needs of these children and their families, we offer ADD-ONS! An Add-On is a program that meets from 1-3 pm each day to extend your child’s day. We have designed Add-Ons specifically for early childhood, including Water Play, Cooking, Arts & Crafts, Dress Up & Drama, Tumbling, and more! These early childhood Add-Ons offer a convenient way to enhance your child’s experience by exploring a variety of enrichment activities while extending their day.
Class assignments are determined by the child’s grade as of September 2019. Enrollment is limited, so remember to register early.
