Summer Hill is a unique enrichment center that introduces children, ages 2 1⁄2 to 6 years to the physical, social, and intellectual challenges of early childhood. We will provide your child with the tools, staff, setting, and experiences that will best prepare him/her for the problem solving and challenges encountered during early childhood. It is our goal to instill an overall sense of confidence in each child through the advocation of creativity and the spirit of individuality.
Another important facet of the Summer Hill program is the development of social skills. Activities have been designed that will foster such fundamental social skills as sharing, helping, and
listening. In addition, we will focus on the special relationship between the child and his/her environment, with energy directed toward generating a sense of respect for the earth and all its
creatures. At Summer Hill, each child will become an integral and active member of the classroom while at the same time increase his/her own feeling of self worth.
Sound body, sound mind – at Summer Hill the two are inseparable, and it is around this philosophy that we have developed our movement program. Through this program, we will maximize control,
coordination, perceptual motor skills, gross motor skills, fine motor skills, body awareness, spatial relationships, endurance, and most importantly, an overall sense of physical competency. To
complete the picture both music and dance have been incorporated into this multifaceted program.
All of our programs have been designed to stimulate cognitive development through active sensory exploration and manipulation of the classroom and outdoor environment. At Summer Hill, we have
carefully chosen both the staff and the tools that will encourage fundamental problem solving rather than role memorization. Each child will be encouraged to work at his/her own pace with little
emphasis on time restraints.
