SWIMMING

Swimming and water play is an important part of summer fun! Toddlers enjoy a daily swim in our heated kiddie pool. A Red Cross certified instructor along with our counseling staff, facilitate a fun and energetic swimming session. To insure the safety of our young campers, each child is equipped with a floatation device and are carefully monitored. Campers are introduced to beginning skills such as blowing bubbles under water and hand strokes using imaginative games and creative role playing activities. Each swim session concludes with ample time for a splashing good time enjoying a variety of water toys!
The Toddler Summer Program is sure to bring lots of joy and learning to every child.

NATURE

Toddlers can be found visiting and learning about Nature at the Farm and Garden. Horses, sheep, goats, chickens, birds, and bunny rabbits reside alongside our flourishing Garden overflowing with tomatoes, corn, string beans, eggplant and more delicious vegetables ready to be sampled!

EXPRESSIVE ART

Art is a natural mechanism for young children to express their perceptions of the world. In addition to the individual projects that children have the opportunity to complete each day, Laurel Hill encourages large-format group projects that encourage children to create cooperatively. Using a variety of tools, including multi-sized and textured brushes, rollers, sponges, sticks and stamps, children collaborate to produce art that would be impossible to create independently. This is the very favorite part of the day for many children, for whom combining socialization with artistic exploration is a perfect fit.

MUSIC

Making Music. Singing, dancing, rhythm band, and movement games stir up the fun and enhance our learning each day. Our children enjoy daily music classes that stimulate our toddlers’ desire to learn, and create feelings of excitement and enjoyment.
