KINDERGARTEN TRANSITION

Kindergarten Academic/Enrichment Camp

Morning
Summer camp is the perfect way to help your child to adapt to his/her new surroundings here and make a smooth transition into Laurence. It is an important time for them to meet their teachers and specialists, make new friends, and become familiar with our campus and the school routine. The morning program is designed to incorporate academic time (reading/math) along with enrichment (music/art/P.E., and dance/drama),and a splash of fun (moon bounces/water slides/Bubblemania/puppies/prize room, and more!)

Afternoon
Spend the afternoons with our own kindergarten teachers, who have planned an interactive program of enjoyable arts and crafts, delectable cooking, and stimulating literature-based activities. Each of these activities follows a distinctive summer theme, such as camping, vacationing, and exploring nature.
