Summer Program

Celebrate Summer With Us!

This year, Lesley Ellis Summer Program will run from June 20- August 22, 2016. There is always something new and exciting happening at the Lesley Ellis Summer Program! We have lots of fun activities planned and can’t wait for it all to begin. Each week starts a new session with new adventures for young children and older students in these age groups: 

  • Young Adventurers - Entering Preschool (2.9) and PreKindergarten
  • Junior Discoverers - Entering TK, Kindergarten, Grade 1
  • Senior Explorers - Entering Grades 2-4
  • Trailblazers - Entering Grades 5-8

Our summer program is designed around popular weekly themes. Each session has approximately 25 children and is led by experienced early childhood, elementary and middle school educators from Lesley Ellis School. Throughout the summer children are immersed in hands on explorations and experiences. Depending on specific weekly themes and age groups there may be field trips or special guests and visitors who are introduced as part of our programs.
