FAQs about NSN’s Summer Play Program

What is the program like? 

The schedule and philosophy closely follow those of our regular school year.  Most of the day (9:00-11:55 am) is spent outside in our nice shady playground working on open-ended art projects, reading books, and playing with water and sand.  On hot days, the Twos/Threes room will be available as a cool spot to play. The program runs for 6 weeks (7/8-8/15) and you can choose to send your child 2, 3 or 4 days per week. Complete cost and payment information is listed on the application form.

Who will the teachers be? 

Dara Spezial , who has been with NSN for years, will be the lead teacher. She will have experienced camp counselors assisting her.

What days and times does the program run?

The program will run for 6 weeks starting Monday, July 8th and ending Thursday, August 15th. You may choose a 2, 3 or 4 day option.
