I will send a list of local school and information about summer.....

Summer Program

The summer months bring a change of weather, schedule, pace and activities. The SJM Summer program follows the same daily schedule as the one followed during the academic year with a greater emphasis on cultural studies and physical development.

During the summer the children spend more time enjoying outdoor activities, music and movement, sports and arts and crafts projects. Our staff of certified Montessori teachers conduct all summer classes. The program is based around a weekly theme, such as the study of water forms, and all lessons and activities grow from that common theme.

This site lists classes for all ages and interests are available, giving community members a unique opportunity to experience something new. Here is a brief overview of one of their programs. This is from the City of San Juan Capistrano website.

Kindergarten Readiness

This unique program serves families who seek an education program that is fun, academic, and unique.
The planned activities and lessons are not only academic, but hands-on and exciting. We individualize the learning process, so that each child may feel successful with their learning regardless of their age or skill. Our small class sizes allow for a safe learning environment, that nurtures independent,
confident, and critical thinkers.
In addition to school readiness skills and academics, the program now offers a Spanish language dynamic. Children will be exposed to the Spanish language with the use of the “word of the day” techniques and songs & music.

The City of San Juan Capistrano Kindergarten Readiness program is available for children 3.5 to 5 years of age. All children must be potty trained to participate.

Fees:
2 days a week: $360.00/6 weeks
3 days a week: $540.00/6 weeks
4 days a week: $720.00/6 weeks
*Minimum of 2 days a week
Plus $150.00 materials fee for all six sessions.

Kindergarten Readiness
31411 La Matanza St.
San Juan Capistrano, CA 92675
