Summer Enrichment

Summertime offers unique opportunities for children to explore our outdoor classrooms – building skills, knowledge and appreciation of the natural world and engaging in math, science, art and language activities. During summer, we add fun and intentional learning experiences that build onto our year-round curriculum for children from infancy to pre-K.

Outdoor STEM Exploration & Experiments

Students see and begin to understand how the outdoor world around them works as they conduct experiments and learn about nature, gardening, bugs, weather and more in our outdoor classrooms. Younger children are observing and exploring these scientific concepts, while older children are making predictions, experimenting and classifying materials.

Water Safety Lessons & Family Swim Days

Pre-K students will learn about water safety in their classrooms this summer from our friends at IndyParks. They’ll learn basic pool rules and how to stay safe in and near water. We will also be hosting Family Swim Days again this summer on select Saturdays at IndyParks pools. In addition to family open swim time, your child will have the opportunity to participate in a swim lesson. Stay tuned for dates!

Splash Days

From sprinklers to water tables, weekly splash day activities not only let children cool off and have fun, but water play stimulates imaginations, increases vocabulary, and develops motor and coordination skills of children of all ages. In addition, older children are also learning scientific concepts through experimentation and discovery, such as learning the properties of water and how it is different from something like sand. Finally, mathematic concepts such as measurement, weight and volume can be introduced through water play with the use of different size containers to fill and dump.

Literacy Activities & Summer Reading

Children practice their writing skills by writing in sand and other fun mediums in the summer, and spend time planning, storytelling, and documenting their projects and experiments daily. Children have opportunities to take books outside to enjoy reading experiences in a natural environment.

Creative Arts & Messy Play

Mud play, body painting and more provide children with opportunities to express themselves and get creative while developing their fine motor and concentration skills. Younger children are exploring and demonstrating curiosity as a learner, while older children are using imagination and creativity to solve problems.

Family Fun

Stay tuned for special Day Early Learning Family gatherings and activities throughout the summer.
