That time has come! We have officially launched our new set of Discovery Zone programming for the summer months ahead and are very excited! Our preschool and school-age programs are getting ready to set aside their yearly focus and jump into summer curriculums designed just for them. The curriculum themes have been selected based on the specific interests and skills of the children as indicated by our annual survey feedback.
The themes for both age groups are largely organized into two-week periods of time. We wanted to provide children with an opportunity for a more thorough and meaningful exploration of each topic. Group discussions, physical literacy activities and STEAM (Science, Technology, Engineering, Arts and Mathematics) pursuits are daily highlights built into both programs. The preschool-aged programs also feature a daily story time experience.
Throughout the course of the week, children are presented with a variety of other high-interest learning activities designed to foster growth in multiple developmental domains. Creative play, sensory exploration, construction, dramatic play, science investigation, and math and manipulatives have all been threaded throughout each week as additional learning opportunities. These activities are designed to be both engaging and intrinsically motivating, while encouraging divergent, independent thought.
Each week also culminates in a Fabulous Friday Event. This event captures the learning that has taken place throughout the week in an exciting, celebratory experience. We encourage children to develop their leadership skills by guiding portions of this event according to their unique interests and styles. Every week is something new!
While we have adjusted our programming to accommodate physical distancing measures, we have achieved a series of summer programming unlike any other. Your children will be connected, engaged and empowered with their weekly accomplishments. We have an amazing set of summer adventures for your children!
