Early Childhood Summer at LJCDS is made up of three two-week sessions running from 9 a.m.–3:30 p.m. Our early childhood program is committed to providing each child with developmentally appropriate activities to encourage social, emotional, cognitive and physical growth. Our summer program is built and run by professional educators with many years of teaching experience.
Each session is designed around a fun and enriching theme that will inspire play and learning through a variety of activities including crafts, literature, science and indoor/outdoor play. Students who stay for a full day will have quiet time after lunch, followed by an afternoon snack and fun guest presenters! Afternoon guest presenters may include programs such as Drama Kids, Let’s Cook, Challenge Island, yoga, Creative Dance and more!Afternoon Guests
