Meadows Montessori School has designed a special summer program based on Montessori ideals and principles for children ages 15 months – 6 years old. Our summer camp program is designed to nurture curiosity, creativity, and imagination and is a great way to experience a taste of Montessori education over the summer, to transition new students entering our program in the fall, or to introduce young children to their first camp experience.
Our unique and flexible program offers:
- A fun, yet stimulating experience for preschoolers and first-time campers.
- Highly qualified certified Montessori teachers and staff, experienced in the developmental needs of young children.
- A Montessori-certified Camp Director
- A flexible and convenient schedule for busy families; parents may choose individual weeks as needed.
- Weekly thematic activities; including “Art”, Cooking”, “Earth, Physical Science”, “Animal, Life Science, Zoology”, and “Plants, Life Science, Botany”.
We provide all campers a continuity of Montessori fundamentals practiced in our toddler, primary and pre-K programs - respect for self, others, and the environment. Our campers are enchanted by story tellers, and other special events we bring to the program throughout the summer.

Program Description (3-6 year olds)
This class is designed to introduce students to a variety of art experiences through the use of paint, crayons, markers, colored pencils and more. Students will learn how to use line, different shapes, texture, overlap, pattern and repetition in their own artwork. The first lesson will focus on line. Each lesson will build upon previously introduced art vocabulary and concepts.
($20 supply fee required): This class is designed to introduce students to healthy eating habits, kitchen hygiene and utensil skills. Students will learn the food groups and will be able to prepare simple snacks, and a variety of dishes. They will also be allowed to use and help with age appropriate utensils.
An atmosphere of love and respect for plants and animals in the home and classroom is the best foundation for a lifetime of comfort and interest in nature. This begins in the home as the child absorbs the family's attitude toward vegetables, flowers, gardens, house plants, weeds, and trees.
