Extended School Year
First Children School offers a seven-week long extended school year program for our students. The program gives new students the opportunity to become acquainted with their new school in a particularly low-key environment, and it allows returning students to maintain learning that is hard to retain over long summer breaks.
Our extended school year program helps children improve learning and social skills through a combination of academic curriculum and social activities. Since it takes place during summertime, we strive to create a rewarding and fun experience for students. Reading, math, science and Social Studies are taught up to four times per week through small group instruction, and our therapists join teachers in helping to develop social and games skills through a variety of fun activities including, group games, cooking, arts and crafts and trips to the playground. Children also participate in recreational activities and gardening.
