Summer at Open House means fun and friends, with flexible schedules for families!

During summer, our dedicated and experienced teachers create a happy mix of indoor and outdoor activities filled with art, music, science, and, of course, water play up on our enclosed rooftop playground!  The summer world of oceans and ponds, plant life and animals inspires our themes and projects.  For the older groups, one or two field trips are planned for every session.  (Children must be 4 years old to take bus trips.) The younger groups may take walking trips to the playground and other neighborhood points of interest.  Classrooms are air-conditioned, and snacks and beverages are provided.

During summer, and throughout the year, the heart of Open House’s program is about encouraging each individual child’s social and emotional growth. Our teachers and administration strive to create an environment which is informal and relaxed but carefully supportive of the developmental growth of the whole child.  Our central goal is to help children learn to cooperate while respecting differences among people.  We encourage a warm alliance between parents, teachers and children, laying a strong foundation for a happy, successful camp.

As we do during our regular preschool year, Open House offers several summer program choices designed to accommodate varying schedules.   We offer both a five day and a three day (T-W-TH) weekly schedule with varying day lengths: 9-1, 9-3, and 8-6. Extra hours may be purchased on an a-la-carte basis. Summer at Open House is divided into three two-week sessions and an Independence Day Holiday Program that is generally a 3 or 4 day one-week session in 2017.  Children must be enrolled for a minimum of one complete session.

Enrollment typically starts in early March.  Open House has historically been able to accommodate all families who wish to attend and has never kept a wait list, but early enrollment ensures that you will get your first program choice.
