TODDLER AND PRIMARY CHILDREN
Our 2018 summer programs span eight weeks and are conveniently organized into four available sessions. Students may attend one or more sessions and may stay for a half or full day depending on their age. Toddler and Primary programs offer age-appropriate activities for children looking to explore, be challenged and relax this summer. Primary classes also have basic swim instruction, field trips, sports, arts, nature recreation and “special days” provide a well-rounded summer experience.

Our Summer Program is a natural extension of MSLF’s distinguished school year curriculum. During the summer, we transform to offer all-inclusive summer fun.  Our teachers—who the children already know and love—are our inspiring, trustworthy and caring counselors.
