Mandala offers a six-week summer school program following a short break at the end of the school year. We recognize the importance of spending time together as a family, particularly during the summer when other children may have an extended break from school. In order to give some flexibility, we also offer a 5-week summer tuition plan that allows you to take any week off that works with your family’s vacation schedule.
*Please note that for Summer registration, priority will be given to our currently enrolled students who are graduating from Mandala and moving on to Kindergarten, and any other child who is enrolling in BOTH summer and fall. Preschool children who are hoping to attend summer only will be placed on a wait list and notified in June of whether we will have a summer placement for them.
The summer program is relaxed and fun. There is slightly less structure and a greater emphasis on creative expression, outdoor exploratory experiences, and theme-based activities involving movement and imagination. Literature and small group are integrated into these themes so that a cohesive curriculum is experienced by the child. During the day, the children also have the opportunity to work with the Montessori materials in our math, language, sensorial, and practical life areas guided by our Montessori-trained teachers.
