Annual Summer Program

In July and August each year, Stoney Creek Montessori School offers a summer camp program. While not traditional Montessori, the program is Montessori-informed and filled with activities to encourage creative, exploration, and curiosity. Every day includes lots of fresh air and fun!

This program is available on a first-come-first-served basis to currently-enrolled children. If space permits, enrollment will open to children in our local community who are 3 to 5 years old.

Our daily agenda includes free play, group activities, active play and quiet time. Campers will enjoy two nutritious snacks and a delicious lunch. For those who need rest, nap time is available. Summer camp hours are 8:30 am to 4.15 pm, with the option to add late care until 5.30 pm. 

Please email to register your interest.
