Summer Program News!

Despite the cold, we’ve been thinking a lot about summer lately, and we are please to share what’s coming up for Hawthorne-on-Essex Daycare’s new Summer Program:

  • Preschool (2.5-4 yrs)

Our preschool rooms (104 & 105) will be running extra programming for the summer to keep our littlest members enriched and entertained for all of July and August.

Fees for our preschool summer program will remain unchanged at $1050 per month.

  •  Kindergarten (4 & 5 yrs)

For our kindergarten students, (rooms 213 and 114) we are organizing lively, full-day summer program that will include: offsite trips, special guests and weekly themes.

Fees for the kindergarten summer program are $800 per month.

  •  School-age (6 yrs+)

This is the biggest change: For our school-age program (rooms 103 and 109) we are excited to announce a move to a summer camp format.

Families can sign up for as many weeks as they like this summer and will only pay for the weeks they use.

We are currently putting the final touches on a dynamic program suitable for this age group that we will share with you soon. Following weekly themes, our program will include two trips offsite per week, a weekly swim at St. Alban’s and special guests.

The fee for this new school-age summer program is $215 a week ($175 for four-day weeks due to statutory holidays). Children who sign up for three weeks or more will be given a 5% discount on their total summer fees.

These fees reflect the true cost of our summer program and are at or below the fees of other daycares in our area.
