Our School-Age Program

"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.

Campers enjoy themed activities, special visitors, field trips, and so much more.

Our Curriculum Components

“The environment must be rich in motives which lend interest to activity and invite the child to conduct his own experiences.”
-Dr. Maria Montessori

  • Sensorial Children learn skills very effectively through their senses. Specific activities are designed to capitalize on using the senses to learn.
  • Math Mathematical thought process and practice are woven into summer activities to help children explore math as it relates to multiple areas in fun and interesting ways.
  • Language All our explorations and activities encourage growth in oral language, written expression, reading, and grammar elements, weaving all the components into the summer themes.
  • Garden Lessons in the outdoors help children develop an understanding and appreciation for the complexity and interdependence of our living world. Children develop the skills of exploration, observation, experimentation, and conservation.
  • Culture Cultural exercises in our summer camp programs include special visitors, in-depth studies, and hands-on activities related to the world around us, including other countries and cultures, the natural world, different languages, and foods.

Learning at Home

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.
