SUMMER CAMP 2017

Your kids will love the summer camp we have planned for this year. It will be a time spent with friends—old and new—having fun, taking on projects, discovering new places and experiencing new things.

This year, our summer camp for kids has chosen the theme…

CONSTRUCTION

Who doesn’t love construction? Kids and adults alike love building things, and that’s just what your children will get to do all summer this year’s summer camp in Sterling. Your boys and girls will be fascinated as they get to participate in the following activities:

  • Lego Robotics
  • Build your own Angry Bird Game
  • Construct your own planter (with wood, nails, etc) – then plant herbs
  • Sewing
  • Build a race car
  • Build bottle rockets
  • Build an insect hotel
  • Egg drop challenge
  • Make your own desert
  • Learn to make electricity

There will be no lack of good, old-fashioned fun at summer camp, too. Here are some of our perennial favorite activities that your kids will get to do this summer at camp:

  • Field Trips
  • Pool
  • Movies
  • Krispy Kreme Factory (learn how to make donuts)

ZUMBA AND YOGA FOR KIDS

We practice fitness, too! While there’s a place for mentally stimulating activities, the summer should also be a chance for your child to grow stronger, attain more balance, and improve gross motor skills and sports ability. One of the ways we do this is through our Zumba and Yoga for Kids program. Your children will laugh and move without even realizing they’re working their bodies in targeted ways that boost their development.

Expand your child’s horizons and bring out the wonder with the kinds of activities they will LOVE!


Enroll today in the summer camp at Kids Farm Children’s Academy.

When is it? (Dates & Times)

  • The dates of our summer camp are June 12 – August 25
  • Summer camp fits your work schedule! Drop off as early as 6:00 am, and pick up by 6:30 pm.

What age children do you accept?

Children as young as two can come to our summer camp! Yes, it’s a preschool summer camp, too! Twos, Threes, and Fours will each have classes with kids the exact same age. Kids age five and up will join us in larger age ranges and will be in classes with around 20 kids each.

Is it only for kids enrolled in the daycare, or for anyone in the community?

Anyone can come! We allow outside enrollment for summer camp, so your child doesn’t have to attend our day care to come to summer camp.

What is a typical week like?

In a typical week, we might go swimming, work on a group art project, take a trip to a local park or museum and try out bowling or roller blading. Our weeks are busy and fun and cover a wide range of interests. A popular highlight—and now a Kids Farm tradition—comes at the end of our summer program as we treat all of the children to a trip to the waterpark, complete with a sleepover at the center!

By adopting a different theme for each month, we provide your child with activities and field trips to get them active, keep them thinking, and introduce them to new things.

This is the summer, so first and foremost, we make sure everything we do is fun!

Daycare for Toddlers in Davidsonville, MD

Toddlers

Looking for a toddler daycare that will stimulate your child’s curiosity and provide enriching educational experiences?

As your child becomes a toddler you will see their curiosity grow. They’ll ask more questions, become intrigued by everything that surrounds them, and notably, they’ll want to learn independently. That’s why we’ve built our curriculum for this age group to establish solid foundations in three key areas: language, science, and social skills. This ensures your child begins to develop knowledge and understanding of our comprehensive STEM curriculum while learning important interpersonal skills and developing physically and emotionally. Your child will learn in a fun, safe and colorful environment to encourage exploration through music, art, and interactive toys—all of which are central to our program of learning.

 

Our Toddlers Curriculum

Language can be complex for a young learner, which is why we teach using a three-strand approach: confidence, vocabulary, and expression. By using this approach we ensure our toddlers have a comprehensive understanding of language, and fundamentally, that they enjoy their learning experience.

  • Confidence: building confidence in the use of language through finger play, group reading, and singing
  • Vocabulary: development through naming common objects, group discussion and word games
  • Expression: the development of vocal and oral expression through listening to music and learning songs

Science

We introduce our toddlers to science through play and activities that focus on the following basic science principles:

  • Colors
  • Water
  • Sounds
  • Observations
  • Texture and sensory
  • Construction
  • Animals
  • Shapes

Social skills

We focus on group activity to encourage inclusion, sharing, and respect. We introduce the following topics and work with children as a group and individually to nurture social and emotional development at a pace that’s right for your child:

  • Feelings
  • Sharing
  • Self-esteem
  • Families
  • Expressing needs
  • Friendship
  • Kindness
  • Art
  • Names
  • Manners
  • Eating habits

Infants

Infants

 

We are immensely proud of our infant program and our reputation for providing secure, loving and individual care for every child. At such a young age our infant group sessions firmly focus on establishing trust and building long lasting relationships between your child and our dedicated teaching and care staff. Our caregivers ensure your child is not only well cared for but also stimulated through play aided by visual and audio sensory toys.  Together, this helps children become confident and comfortable in their learning environment; in turn nurturing openness to new learning opportunities as they move up through our programs.

We understand the importance of keeping you, our parents, up-to-date about your child’s progress which is why we provide daily reports for every child care. You are also welcome to call us at any time to check in on your little one and we’ll happily update you on their day.

Furthermore, you can be assured that when your child is ready to transition into our toddler program it feels like a natural progression. We invest time in having our infant and toddler program teachers interact with both groups to establish a sense of familiarity and unity.
