Let’s Discover Canada!
Join us for our fun filled summer camp led by a Montessori certified teacher. Children will learn about location, geographical features, languages, food, culture and games of Canada. Lots of arts and craft projects are on the schedule. They will learn to count, greet and sing in French. A children’s French movie will be shown on the projector and the children will celebrate Canada Day. On last day of the camp, we will open a big piñata and have a performance on the stage in our backyard.
Children will learn Spanish from a native Spanish speaker and will develop their sense of order and independence by working with Montessori materials. They will enjoy Yoga animal poses which promote mind, body coordination.
We will spend lots of time outdoors, play water games and will also explore nature and Science. Children will eat lunch at picnic tables in the backyard, wade in child sized pools and play in sprinklers. They will also visit nature centers and local parks.
The dates are June 1 – July 15, 2016. Half day (8:30-11:30 or 11:30-2:30) and full day (8:30-2:30) programs are offered.
To enroll, please call us at 847-890-225 or email at email@example.com.

- If the number of applicants is greater than the number of available spaces, there will be a drawing for spaces after 9:00 a.m. on February 4. Children whom we are unable to place in classes will be put on our waiting lists ahead of children whose families submit applications after the 9:00 a.m. February 4, 2016 deadline.
- If no appropriate placement was available in the class choice(s) indicated, the registration fee will be refunded after the lottery and the child will be kept on the waiting list.

To maximize your chances for enrollment, we urge you to be flexible and indicate as many choices as possible for your child. For example, morning slots in some of our classes may be limited; please consider the afternoon classes as well, since you are more likely to be placed in a class right away. Please note the age requirement for each class you choose. Finally, only choose classes you would be willing to accept since your registration fee will not be refunded if you are placed in a class.
