Learning and fun don’t end when summer comes! Here at the Austin Children’s Academy we extend the Montessori educational experience into the hot months of school vacation by offering half day, full day, and extended day summer programs.
ACA’s summer programs provide:
Many of our students in the After-School Pickup Program during the academic school year enjoy joining ACA in the summer for activities designed especially for them.
As a Montessori school, ACA offers your child the kind of creative, loving, open classroom experience that teaches self-reliance, critical thinking, healthy collaboration, initiative, independence, and a love of learning. Extending that experience over the summer months helps eliminate the summer learning loss (also known as the “summer setback” or the “summer slide”) that many children experience between grades. These learning setbacks can amount to a month of achievement scores in math and reading. Educators note that offering engaging options for students over the summer months helps mitigate those educational losses.
As a Montessori school staffed with Montessori-trained and certified teachers, ACA is uniquely qualified to offer the perfect mix of education and fun. Enrollment in an ACA summer program will help keep your child mentally, socially, and developmentally stimulated. To this end, the Austin Children’s Academy’s summer program integrates a wide variety of special activities to keep the curriculum lively and fresh. These include:
If you’re considering enrolling your child in a Austin Children’s Academy classroom in the fall, signing up for a part-time summer program may be the ideal way to gently ease their transition to full-time classes. They’ll have fun, learn the ropes, and become accustomed to the teachers and classroom long before that Dreaded First Day.
