Awakening the Joy of Discovery
The philosophy of the Berrybrook School is to provide an atmosphere where children can feel free to explore their environment and express themselves through play, thus fostering individuality, creativity, and independence. Each child is entitled to a safe, secure and cheerful environment. The program promotes the cognitive, social, emotional and physical development of all children.
Berrybrook School Summer Nature Program
The Summer Nature Program at Berrybrook offers a variety of outdoor self-directed and
structured activities with an emphasis on nature and art. Through the summer, children work
with a wide range of art media and processes, and experiment with water, sand, and bubbles
as well. Our playground offers gross motor activities for group and individual play. An ideal
setting for observing, exploring, and discovering nature, Berrybrook is surrounded by acres of
woods, rolling hills, fields, and streams. Our fields are full of wildflowers and tall grasses in
June and July and provide the perfect setting for age appropriate activities.
The 2016 Summer Nature Program curriculum is planned for children who will be 4 years old by September 1, 2016; 2015-2016 2 Day Beginners students; and elementary students up to seven years of age. The program operates from 9:00 am - 1:00 pm, 3 days per week (Tuesday, Wednesday, Thursday) and will be offered for 7 weeks. Parents will provide a nutfree lunch for children and Berrybrook will provide a mid-morning snack. All children will need a current medical form and a Summer Nature Program Authorization/Consent Form.
