SUMMER THEMES
 - Living Things: Animals, plants, trees, insects, aquatic life 
 - Gardening: Planting, harvesting, watering the plants and trees 
 - Old-School Fun: Jump-Rope, Mud-Pies, Kick-Ball, Hop-Scotch
 - Chinese Culture: Arts, crafts, cooking, music, dance, calligraphy

IMMERSION: Our Mandarin and Spanish staff are native speakers who speak to and play with the children 100% of the time in the target language. 

TIME IN NATURE:  We believe children are enriched by time in nature. Our daily time exploring nature and field play gives children the opportunity to acquire an appreciation for the outdoors that goes beyond the typical play-ground experience.

LOCATION: Morningside Gardens is a six-building residential coop campus of one square block of private gardens, and a private field and playground in Morningside Heights located near 123rd & Amsterdam.

IMPORTANT FORMS

 

Make your child's medical appointment now to avoid the summer rush in your physician's office.  We can accept your doctor's standard school form, or supply you with one.  No child will be allowed to attend without a completed, signed, and stamped,  medical form. It must be dated within 8 months of enrollment.  It's a good idea to keep extra copies of the medical form for your records. 


Submit all registration forms prior to the first day of the session.


Submit two passport-sized photos of your child along with your signed registration forms.


Provide all supplies on the first day.  A supply list will be sent to you.
