The Summer School runs for the first week of July to the end of August approximately 8 weeks. During this time the Montessori materials are put away and the fun begins. Each week has a theme and is filled with activities and art/crafts related to that theme.

During the summer, we have plenty of outdoor play in our garden and trips across to the the park. We also have regular teddy bears picnics and barbeques.
We believe that when possible it is great for the children to be outdoors and enjoy the beautiful world around them.
The Summer School has always been very popular and great fun.
