    School-Age Summer Camp

    "The land is where our roots are. The children must be taught to feel and live in harmony with the Earth." -Dr. Maria Montessori

    We offer a dynamic summer camp program for children ages 6-12. Our camp provides children with fun opportunities to explore, create, and enjoy the wonders of the season. Each weekly session provides a unique thematic program so children can experience a variety of topics in depth. Learning at Bright Horizons is a journey of discovery, investigation, experimentation, and collaboration. Read More

What Parents are Saying

Our greatest advocates are our families.

"If all leaders demonstrated the respect, confidence, and compassion that we’ve experienced at your school, we would live in a much better world."

World at their Fingertips

Our curriculum, The World at Their Fingertips, provides intentional guidance and rich experiences that build upon individual strengths and talents. With our child development professionals at their sides, children at Bright Horizons are assured of getting the care that they need, the creative learning experiences they enjoy, and the intellectually challenging opportunities they deserve.

Fractions

You Will Need:

Ingenuity

Directions:

Notice and discuss the fractions in your child's world!

  • When eating pizza or a pie, count the pieces of an eight-piece pie, 1/8, 2/8, etc.
  • Help your child cut her sandwich in half, fourths, thirds.
  • Discuss what part of the family she is:  if she is one of six members of a family, she is 1/6th of the family.
  • Let your child divide the dessert among your family members, i.e. if you have 5 brownies and four people, each person gets 1 and 1/4 of a brownie.
  • Include your child when you’re baking something that asks for measurements (1/4 cup, etc.).

Tip:

Here’s a list of books to read on this topic:

  • The Door Bell Rang – Pat Hutchinson
  • Eating Fractions – Bruce McMillan
  • Half Birthday Party – Charlette Pomeranz

If your child does not show an interest in fractions, wait until another time.
