Summer at Apple is jam-packed! For over 45 years, we’ve given children a summer to remember. They enjoy theme weeks based on the things they love most plus athletics, arts and crafts, dance, drama, cooking, music, science and nature explorations. We also host in-house events like the reptile man and take field trips to places like mini golf courses and bounce houses.
Summer session is run by year-round, experienced teachers (versus high school aged counselors at other camps) and a highly trained support team who make sure children feel challenged, happy, safe and loved. All team members undergo CPR, first aid and AED certification.
Summer learning loss is real (New York Times 2011) so we beat that slump by making learning FUN. When children explore environmental science by making robots out of recycled materials, they are truly engaged and excited to learn.
Apple’s Summer STEAM (Science, Technology, Engineering, Arts and Mathematics) program includes Junior Scientists, Tech Time, Creative Kids and more. Using hands on, real world materials, children work together as a team to seek solutions to real social, economic and environmental problems. From using discarded household items to creating a musical instrument to designing a working crazy straw, children ASK, IMAGINE, PLAN, CREATE and IMPROVE.
SuperKids Reading & Writing: With Apple’s proven, proprietary phonics reading program, most children begin to read by age 4. Apple Montessori is highly regarded for helping children of various ages gain early reading skills. An abundance of top-of-the-line Montessori materials means children follow their own interest at their own pace.
SuperKids Math: Engaging, hands-on math materials turn obscure concepts into something children can see, feel and understand. As Maria Montessori put it, “What the hand does, the mind remembers.”
Our summer program is perfect for your child’s age and stage with programs like the well-loved Young Chefs, where children 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. In Shining Stars, we unleash our inner rock and drama star as we sing, dance and perform for the crowd of adoring fans (our friends)!
Independence, confidence and mindfulness, fostered daily in a Montessori environment, are increasingly recognized as important components of well-being and success. Apple is known for nurturing the whole child with programs proven to give children an edge academically, socially and emotionally.
Apple Montessori Schools and staff are safety-certified by Secure Education Consultants, former US Secret Service Agents, to help us take our safety and security to the highest level possible. State-of-the-art Surveillance Systems, Fingerprint Check-in and Out Technology, Parent Live Video Monitoring, Emergency Preparedness Plans, and more.
It’s always a summer to remember, giving children memories and friendships for life. Parents also love how much growth they see in their child during the summer months especially because they know it’s FUN too. It’s why parents and children choose Apple year after year.
