Mayflower Early Childhood Center offers programs to children year-round. We follow the Minneapolis Public School calendar for the nine months of the school year. We close for one week at the end of the school year, for staff to clean the rooms and prepare for summer.
In 2013 our last day of the nine month program will be Friday May 24, 2013. We close at 11:30 AM that day and have an All Family Picnic in Pearl Park. Our 2013 Summer Program begins on Monday, June 3, 2013, concluding on Friday, August 23.
Parents can choose to send their child to the full 12 weeks of the summer program or select specific weeks and even specific days for their child to participate. The Summer Program continues the regular activities of the classroom that your children enjoy from September to May, plus plenty of outdoor time in a safe, relaxed setting.
