co-op summer program

The Co-op philosophy is integrated into a relaxed, camp-like experience. The Summer Co-op is a seven week program offered to children entering the Two, Three & Fours programs, as well as rising Kindergarten classes. Summer Co-op runs from mid-June through the end of July.

Curriculum

Our environment and nature are emphasized in the curriculum. 

The Co-op’s natural setting lends itself to a wonderful outdoor experience, especially the green lawn for sprinklers, water slides, games and picnics. Nature walks on the property also take place. The playground is available every day. Teachers often adapt activities to the outdoors.

Each week throughout the 7-week program, specialists visit the Co-op, offering children opportunities to experience science activities, yoga, a magic show, outdoor gym games and live animal visits. Weekly specials, water play, special lunches, arts and crafts and twice weekly field trips to Bisceglie Pond in Weston for four & five year olds are some of the highlights. 

Staff

The Co-op maintains an excellent staff/child ratio. The Director and majority of teachers are employed by the Co-op year round. Staff employment is based on education, experience and personal commitment to providing a safe, enriching experience for children.

High School and College-age counselors assist with program delivery as well.
