The Ridgeway Nursery School and Kindergarten is pleased to announce our summer schedule for 2017! This year we will be running two camps, RIDGEWAY MINICAMP and CAMP RIDGEWAY!! 

RIDGEWAY MINICAMP is a two-week camp which runs from June 12th- June 22nd.  Minicamp follows a regular school schedule, offering a great way to keep our little ones active, learning and engaged as summer draws near. Our teachers and teaching assistants are planning summer themes and activities that will provide indoor and outdoor fun each day!

We have flexible 2-day, 3-day and 5-day half and full day programs, as well as early drop off and extended day choices.

CAMP RIDGEWAY runs from July 5th - August 11th. You may sign-up for any or all of the 6 weeks offered. Our camp begins at 9:00 am, but we also offer early drop off times of 8:00 am and 8:30 am. The half day program ends at 12:00 pm, but your child may also enjoy lunch (children bring a bagged lunch) and stay until 1:00 pm.  The Full day program begins at 9:00 am and ends at 3:00 pm. There is also extended day options, offering pick-up at 3:30 pm or 4:00 pm.

Our camp provides a caring, fun, child-centered environment, in which children play actively outdoors and indoors(air-conditioned), create crafts, participate in “specials”, splash in water tables and sprinklers and continue to build friendships. Mrs. Alison Ganasi, our art teacher, will be the camp director and she is collaborating with the camp teachers to develop an exciting and fun curriculum that takes advantage of all that the summer offers.

Each week activities revolve around a special theme.  Our themes for 2017 are:
- Celebrate The Red, White and Blue 
- Ocean Odyssey 
 -  Pets Rock 
   -    Sports Extravaganza 
     -  In The Garden 
      -  Safari Adventure

In addition, each day children participate in “specials”, such as Stories and Songs, Art, and Cooking Class, and others.

Daily activities also include:
WATERPLAY – Sprinklers and Water Tables
