You have the opportunity to enroll your child for the whole summer OR for individual weeks, as you choose. The Summer Program at MECC has “Montessori-lite” classroom work. There is an emphasis on outdoor activities and special activities like Water Day (every Wednesday!), weekly themes (new this year—themes such as science, insects, music, Olympics, baking, theater and transportation are being planned), picnic lunches, gardening, and “field trips” to Minnehaha Creek.
Current children at MECC are all invited to enjoy our summer classrooms. The program begins on Monday, June 1 and concludes on Friday, August 28. Each classroom will accommodate 3-day (Tuesday through Thursday) and 5-day (Monday through Friday) children. You can sign up for mornings, mornings plus lunch, or full days, but we ask that you stay with whatever schedule you establish for each week that you enroll.
Summer also includes our After Care and Before Care programs, with Drop-In Care options. After Care closes at 5:30 PM in the summer. Click here for a 2015 Summer Program Enrollment Form.
Summer Program enrollment is limited to currently-enrolled children and new children who are admitted for the 2015-16 school year. Enrollment forms are due on Friday, March 27. Summer Program Enrollment Form is also available at the Blue Welcome Desk.
