Summer 2020

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.

MSLF summer programming is open to currently enrolled MSLF students. Program availability for children enrolled in other area Montessori schools will be shared in mid-May.

At this time, we are not able to offer summer enrollment to children not enrolled at MSLF or at another area Montessori school.

June 15 - August 7, 2020

Our 2020 summer program for Toddler and Primary children spans eight weeks and is conveniently organized into four available sessions. Children may attend one or more sessions and may stay for a half or full day, depending on their age. Our 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, outdoor exploration, gardening and nature education, as well as “special days” which provides a well-rounded summer experience.

Session 1 June 15 – June 26, 2020
Session 2  June 29 – July 10, 2020

Our four weeks of summer programming for Elementary students offer a variety of activities, which take full advantage of all the resources MSLF has to offer! Led by our very own Helen Gerbin, students will be able to spend ample time in our Outdoor Classroom when it’s at its peak. Along with nature exploration, students will enjoy science days, art days, foodie days and adventure days, with off campus trips to the Lake Bluff Farmer’s Market and Lake Forest Beach. The last day of camp will feature our annual MSLF Independence Day Parade! Start your summer at MSLF!
