Summer Camp

Toddler Summer Camp

Ages 2-3
The program is geared toward children who will be enrolled in the RKMS Toddler Program in the fall.

5 days a week                          8:45am - 11:45am

The Ronald Knox Toddler Summer Camp is an introduction to the Montessori classroom for students entering the Toddler Program in the fall. The camp invites toddler students into the classroom setting, enabling them to ease into a drop-off routine and begin to explore for themselves. Young children will join the classroom to gain independence in a safe, welcoming environment, both inside the beautiful Montessori classroom as well as in the fun outdoor areas.

Transitional Summer Camp
Ages 3-4
This camp is for children 3 years of age by the first day of the program in June, who will be entering their first year of the RKMS Primary program.

                                        (lunch class included)

The camp is designed to introduce children to the Primary classroom environment. This program will begin the process of bringing out a child's sense of order, concentration, coordination, and independence through emphasis on the Practical Life and Sensorial areas of the classroom. The children will be introduced to ground rules, guidelines and social expectations that will be an integral part of their experience in the Primary program. In addition, the children are allowed ample time to play outside. Outdoor time will feature different activities throughout the week. Mondays & Fridays are bicycle and scooter days, Tuesdays & Thursdays feature sprinklers and water slides, and Wednesdays are Nature days, with special excursions to explore beautiful Mallinckrodt Park, right next door.
