Summer 2023 at C'E 🌞
Come enjoy a summer amongst friends, parks and the sun with us at C'E Montessori. Our offerings for summer camps this year center around being constantly outdoors, enjoying our neighborhood, picnicking in our green spaces and having a blast with friends. Children between 2 and 9 years old can now sign up and choose from different camp options.
Month-long camps (July and/or August) include adventures in our neighborhood parks, dungeons and dragons, building our new school, Into the Woods the Montessori Musical and more. All camps are designed to take advantage of being able to spend a whole two months outdoors.
We are Montessorians first and foremost, but do not expect Montessori materials or sequential lessons during our camp months. Instead, teacher-made materials will be available relying still on small group lessons and a work cycle and independent time for children to explore materials that are more thematic and less academic in nature. An interesting introduction to the Montessori work flow for your children.
