Summer Session at Apple Montessori Schools

Enjoy your summer Montessori-style with Apple Montessori Schools’ Summer Session. Research has shown that the “summer slump” is a real thing when it comes to a child’s learning and development. But Apple Montessori can help your child overcome summer learning loss with its summer session that combines exciting lessons into exploration and activities.

With 45 years of early childhood education experience, Apple Montessori has a reputation for providing children with a strong foundation for success in school and life. That mission doesn’t stop in the summer.

During Apple’s Summer Session, children build upon that foundation with Super Kids, FasTracKids, and other summer activities that kids love.

The Summer Session is designed for children ages 2-12 and implements Apple Montessori’s proven curriculum, as well as the FasTracKids e-learning program. All Apple Montessori Schools are safety certified and are run year-round by experienced teachers and support staff.

Enrichment programs and activities such as athletics, arts and crafts, cooking, music, science, and nature explorations are also a part of Apple’s Summer Session. The children also get to experience field trips like mini golf, bounce house and the zoo.

Themed weeks based on children’s favorite things and in-house events like Preschool of Rock and Carnival Day also help keep the summer fun and educational for your child.

Beyond all of these great benefits, Apple Montessori’s Summer Session also provides children with the independence, confidence, and mindfulness that are fostered daily in a Montessori environment. Apple’s whole-child learning approach is implemented in all of the Summer Session’s programs and is intended to nurture each child’s unique strengths academically, socially and emotionally.

Apple Montessori Schools Summer Session is offered in Cliffside Park, Edison, Hoboken, and Metuchen. Apple’s summer camp with swimming is offered at the Edgewater, Kinnelon, Mahwah, Morris Plains, Oakland, Towaco, Randolph, and Wayne locations.

Summer Swim Lessons Montessori Style

It’s no secret that children love water, especially when playing in the hot summer sun. At Apple Montessori Schools Summer Camp, not only do our classrooms offer water games like “Practical Life’s Fishing Game” or the “Sink of Float” game, but swimming lessons are also one of the many life skills we can help guide your child through.

Children are eager to learn, and we provide a relaxed and safe environment for them to do so. Our pools are designed for young swimmers and are heated. We understand that it is important to teach a child to swim at his or her own level. Our highly skilled, highly trained staff is Red Cross certified. Our lifeguards and swimming instructors will teach your child how to be safe in and near the water.

Montessori swimming lessons embody the fundamental teachings and philosophies of Apple schools while also giving children time to hang out and socialize with their friends. This form of socialization and learning helps build confidence and independence within campers.

Our daily lessons are designed to build upon each child’s individual skills and abilities. Our lifeguards and aquatic instructors use a Red Cross Learn to Swim Program in conjunction with Apple’s unique approach to foster each child’s swimming abilities and pace.

Our lessons cover six levels of swimming from Level One: Acclimation to the Water for our youngest campers, to Level Six: Advanced Aquatic Skills and Stroke Proficiency. Our youngest campers are given safety bubbles, which are eventually removed as their skills develop.

Games and positive reinforcement are also integral parts of our swimming lessons. Campers are recognized with awards and certificates for reaching milestones throughout the summer. Parents are also kept in the loop with weekly written updates, and ultimately, a report certificate.

We will never pressure your child into doing something they’re not ready or comfortable to do. Montessori swim lessons aren’t just about learning a valuable skill, they’re also about making it fun!

Please see your Campus director for the specifics to your location as swimming lessons may vary.
