Summer Session at Apple

Ages 2 to 9 years
  • With over 45 years of experience, we know what children love most and how they learn best. Apple Summer Session keeps children engaged while having FUN with technology, art, science, music, events, excursions and so much more! In true Montessori fashion, we not only inspire a love of learning at every turn, we  incorporate STEAM so campers begin to ASK, IMAGINE, PLAN, CREATE AND IMPROVE at school and beyond.  

    We welcome you to explore our before and after care program to learn about our extra-curricular and enrichment programs. Several of our locations offer infant and toddler programs which are year-round to ensure your child benefits from the consistency of routine with our nurturing educators.  

  • Supercharged Learning with SuperKids

    SuperKids can stop your child from suffering the “summer learning slump.” These sessions can help by: minimizing learning loss; beating the summer slump; increasing reading skills with a summer reading emphasis; enhancing comprehension with individualized instruction; and increasing math and writing skills.

  • Junior Scientists

    Science, the study of the natural world, fascinates children and we make the most of that wonder by exploring the world around us. Summer students may explore the phenomenon of exploding chalk, make a volcano, or learn about the importance of recycling as we make paper from scratch. In science, we ask why and then set out to discover the answer through observation and experimentation. The mind of a curious child is like a sponge, and we foster that curiosity with unique, hands-on activities and lab experiments.

  • Tech Time

    This cutting-edge, innovative program puts technology to work for your child. It enhances your child’s knowledge with the use of technology-based lesson plans delivered via the Fastrack learning station. Children interact with the equipment including a Smart Board. They follow up with a hands-on activity that relates to the lesson and develop their critical thinking, as well as public speaking skills, while raising their I.Q.

  • Creative Kids

    Our summer art projects are designed for each individual age group to challenge the imagination! Summer students explore materials and techniques while practicing their skills in cutting, painting, and creating. Our oldest students enjoy making projects they can use, like fabric painted tote bags or sun visors. There is something for the artist in everyone at Apple!

  • Waterplay

    On summer days, waterplay is not just a refreshing way to cool off. There is much more to it! Waterplay is both enjoyable and educational and provides rich and valuable early childhood experiences to develop children’s creativity and imagination. It helps children develop eye-hand coordination and math and
    science concepts. It also enhances social skills and encourages cooperation. Of course, your child might think the best part is the splishing and splashing. Ask your school Director if your location offers outdoor waterplay or indoor water tables.

  • Shining Stars

    Children have an inborn ability to sing and move to music! Through theme based lesson plans, children learn new songs, stories and movements as they develop their listening skills and love of music! They will experience every genre from classical to Pop. They may even create instruments to play in their own marching band. Our older summer students especially love to learn new dances. Some past favorites are the Twist, Bunny Hop, Limbo, Macarena, and, of course, the Chicken Dance!

  • Young Chefs

    The science of cooking is fascinating to all children. They love to see their cupcakes double in size as they bake in the oven, or watch as Jell-O turns from a liquid into a giggly solid. Most of all they love to get into the kitchen and cook like real chefs! Look out Emeril and Rachel, we have some budding chefs of our own in Apple’s kitchen. Your child will create his or her own healthy food treats to take home for you to taste. Don’t say we didn’t warn you! All summer students will also create their own fruit smoothie and participate in fruit smoothie socials. (We will adapt the recipes for children with food allergies, whenever possible). Bon Appetit!

  • Indoor and Outdoor Play

    Children enjoy a mix of summer inspired games like obstacle courses, the parachute game, mini bowling and more. Counselors promote fitness and movement and children develop large and small motor skills as they walk, run, hop, skip and jump. Cooperative games like relay races develop spatial awareness, flexibility, coordination and balance. Older children enjoy practicing throwing, catching, and dribbling abilities as they develop good sportsmanship skills.

  • Play Time

    Most schools feature age appropriate playgrounds for children to climb, swing and slide on. The equipment is designed to enhance each child’s individual skills and abilities, while promoting free play and socialization. Many of the playgrounds have synthetic grass play surfaces, with underlying shock-absorbing pads for safety. The Bike Rodeo that takes place on the playground is a favorite as the children bring bikes, trikes, and even big wheels to ride at summer session!

  • Field Trips

    We pride ourselves on giving children a well-rounded experience and we do so on and off-site. We especially love destinations that offer hands-on learning or further develop physical and social skills.  All children who attend our summer program full day and are pre-k and older enjoy favorites like the zoo, mini-golf, bounce house and children’s museums. Favorites amongst our elementary aged summer students were a trip to see a professional baseball game and of course rock climbing!

  • In-House Events

    An In House Event is when the “field trip” comes to Apple! All ages, 2 thru 9, may participate in these events. We have been visited by a petting zoo which includes a pony ride, the Reptile Man who brings outrageous reptiles, and of course, a wacky magician. Some of our annual favorites are the carnival rides and slides, and the snow cone making machine, and cotton candy days! Preschool of Rock is another favorite. Our elementary aged summer students loved participating in a real live game show!

  • Theme Weeks

    Our theme weeks are inspired by children’s favorite things like Secret Life of Pets or superheroes. Children look forward to the new theme each week and the activities, like art and cooking, that will be based on that theme. One of our big summer hits with counselors and children alike is Olympic Week, complete with opening ceremonies, team colors, and relay races. Our summer session calendars and email reminders help busy parents stay organized on what’s happening when.
