Summer Program

Summer Discovery Program – 2020

Welcome to the Pincushion Hill Montessori School summer program. We are guided by the educational philosophy of Dr. Maria Montessori and are a warm, safe, and supportive community that nurtures lifelong love of learning. Pincushion’s Summer Discovery Program offers fun-filled adventures tailored for children 2.9 years old through 10 years old. Our discovery sessions explore a variety of themes including ocean studies ( this summer’s theme ), gardening, wildlife, exploration of the natural world, creating and building, water play, lego programs, arts and crafts, and music and movement. The theme for this summer will be culture and the curriculum will focus on the Incas, Aztecs and Mayans.
Our extensive and mature gardens offer pure fun to explore everything from growing annuals, per annuals, flowers, herbs, and vegetables. The weekly seasonal harvest yields many varieties of food for cooking and baking projects.
Throughout the summer a local Ashland community service person will be invited to speak about their professions – Fire, Police, Dental, Health, Librarian, and others pertaining to our summer theme.
Weekly sessions begin June 15, 2020 and run through August 14, 2020. Summer hours are 8:30a.m. to 5:30p.m. Whether joining us for part of the summer or the entire 9-week program of exploration all children are sure to enjoy learning, playing, and creating in our indoor and outdoor classrooms.
