In light of our re-enrollment period here at BMM, we wanted to announce and elaborate on our theme for this year’s summer program! This year our theme is World Explorers!
With “passports” in hand, children will “travel” to a different country or culture each week, collecting passport stamps as they go. Children will explore each culture learning about the language, cuisine, art, culture, customs, and celebrations that make each nation unique and beautiful! Our Summer Camp will help children develop social, emotional, and cognitive confidence while having fun. Children will participate in the following age-appropriate classroom and outdoor activities! Such activities will include:
- Sports and movement
- Dance, music, and drama
- Arts and crafts
- Science and construction
- Nature study
- Water play
- Special Visitors
All of these activities are going to keep our friends busy and engaged in one of the Montessori’s five key learning areas. All of our teachers are so excited to learn about these places along with them! We are so excited to celebrate the following:
We know that this summer program will greatly contribute to our friends’ development. Learning about different cultures and ways of life in other areas of the world can encourage acceptance and respect towards those who are different from us. One of the most integral parts of Maria Montessori’s vision is peacefulness , and it could be argued that the more we know about other cultures and ways of living, the more peaceful we will be towards people who live differently than we do. All of us at BMM are ready and excited for this journey! Bon Voyage!
