The staff at Global Village Montessori preschool is very excited to bring an action-packed Summer of 2013 filled with fun, adventure and active learning.
What’s in store?
10 weeks of Summer camps (each camp is 1 week in duration) and learning arranged into different themes for children aged 2-6 years. Our summer camps are arranged into 3 different age groups - Toddler, Primary and Kindergarten - so that kids have the most fun and learning.
All of our summer camps are conducted by certified Montessori teachers along with the help of assistant teachers and in some cases outside experts. Our camps include academic learning, music, arts, crafts, outdoor play, water play and special guests.
Our regular preschool students are automatically enrolled in the summer camps. New students can sign up for any week of their choice until spaces are available.
Snacks (two in a day) are provided and a catered lunch is available for an additional fee.
When are the summer camps?
Our summer camps begin on June 10th and end on Aug 16th.
Each summer camp is a week long (5 days) starting the day at 8.30 am and ending at 6 pm. We have full day and ½ day camps.

The summer camps are held at Global Village Montessori at 1146 Jacklin Rd, Milpitas, CA location

Who doesn’t love a camping trip. We will bring camping to our school in this week.
