Summer is a time for outdoor adventures, lots of water play, making new friends, and learning new skills. Toddlers through preschoolers will find a world of excitement and adventure in our summer programs. Days are filled with field trips, special programs that encourage self-discovery, and visits from our animal friends. A Child's Place has summer programs for young twos through almost kindergarten kids. We maintain the same high standards of care and caring found in our school year programs while making sure that every child enjoys the special pleasures that only summer can provide.
