Building Blocks Summer Overview

  • Building Blocks Summer (for students 3 to 6-years-old) is the perfect place to make new friends learn new things, have fun and be safe. Our summer program has a low staff to student ratio with specialized instructors for the many age-appropriate activities that will be offered to keep your child’s body active and their minds stimulated throughout the summer.

    Activities include music & finger play, counting, measuring, fine motor skills, scientific wonders, arts & crafts, sports/active games, computers, toy & construction areas, cooking, and water days. Every week each campus will have a special theme, water day, and an in-house field trip.  Students must be independently potty trained.
