Summer Fun

Children have ample opportunities to be active this summer either in our outdoor playground or on the Gerstung equipment and Imagination Playground located in our gym.

We offer “water play day” every Friday, which includes time for the children to play with water toys outside and run in the sprinkler. On temperate days, the class will spend additional time outdoors such as by doing daily lessons, eating lunch and snack, gardening in the greenhouse, and taking neighborhood walks.
