Watching children’s little eyes light up with wonder, discovery, and understanding is magical. This summer, we will explore the world around us through all of our senses. Weekly themes will guide discussions that teach children to ask questions in order to find their own answers. Our interactive process not only exposes children to Spanish through “real world” projects but it creates exciting, interactive opportunities for children to find JOY in discovery.
-Summer Camp Registration will be 100% digital this year. We will not accept any paper registration packets.
Summer Camp Registration Opens in January 2019.

Each week we have special days to add to the fun:
- Tuesdays ~ Dress-Up Day. Have your child wear their favorite pretend play outfit. In the classroom, the children will have the opportunity to show off their special costume.
- Wednesdays ~ Crazy Hair Day. This is their chance to show off their crazy hair creations.
- Thursdays ~ Special Visitor. Each week we invite a Knowledge-Partner to visit the classroom to bring a theme or concept to life. What better way to learn than from the expert?
- Fridays ~ Water Day. Please send your child to camp in their swimsuits with sunscreen on Fridays. Remember to pack a water bottle, extra sunscreen, a hat and a change of clothes. Kids will cool off and enjoy the water through fun water activities every Friday. (Weather permitting.) Each classroom will have an assigned time throughout the day to enjoy water activities.
Little Big Minds provides snacks for all students daily.
Every Friday, Little Big Minds will provide a pizza lunch for all students.
Lunch is parent-provided Monday thru Thursday. Please send your children to camp with a clearly labeled lunch and re-fillable water bottle. We do not have refrigerators for student lunches so, if your child’s lunch needs to be kept cool you will need to provide an ice-pack.
Little Big Minds Preschool is a Sun Safe school. Please remember to put sunscreen on your child before they get to school
We ask that ALL children bring a change of clothes in a Ziploc bag marked with their first and last name.
Classroom assignments and teachers may vary by week. Please check rosters weekly.
This week we are visiting Colombia where children will have the opportunity to explore the beautiful countryside villages, try on different regional clothing and dance the Cumbia with traditional folkloric dancers. Our little chefs will visit a Colombian market and try their hand at making and tasting empanadas. Que rico!
Our adventure continues with a trip to Spain a vibrant country in the heart of Europe. Known for its delicious cuisine and bold flamenco dancing, a trip to Spain is sure to awaken all of our senses. Children will try Spanish tapas and have a picnic with Ferdinand the Bull.
No way! It’s a spaceship, a coffee store, a robot, a train and more! Children naturally think “outside the box.” They have powerful imaginations that fuel their ability to create. You’ll never look at a box the same again.
Let’s inspire creativity with authentic and natural materials that we find and use every day. Children will work together to use recycled materials and cardboard boxes to build, invent, explore, create and imagine. If they can dream it, they can build it. Just add imagination – and a touch of glue.
Art not only provides important fine motor development opportunities for children but it boosts self-confidence, creativity, and problem-solving skills. This week we will focus on art techniques traditionally found in Asia including charcoal drawing, Chinese ink, watercolors, and modeling clay.
European art is as varied as it is prolific. Let’s try our hand a pointillism, paint, sculpture, wire formations and more. What a fun way to get our hands dirty and practice the messy art of self-expression.
