SummerQuest at Princeton Montessori School is a wholesome, stimulating, nurturing experience. Children are having a blast enjoying the great outdoors, crafts, field trips, and special visitors. Favorite traditions like gardening, building forts, and time for daydreaming and unstructured time with familiar and new friends round out the days.
Recently the Primary and Elementary children were amazed by a presentation from Color Me Hoopy! “Spin Artist” Angela Reitter gave a fascinating Hula Hoop presentation, combining fitness with style, hoops, and smiles! The Elementary students were excited to try out Hooping after the show.
Another summer visitor was, Bill, from Churchville Nature Center, who brought animals from their Reptile Smiles program! Toddlers through Elementary students met several live animals: a snake, a box turtle, and a lizard, and saw firsthand what makes reptiles a fascinating and diverse family of animals. They were able to check out the skull of a crocodile and even stretched out the skin of a reticulated python (the largest snake in the world!) to see the beautiful pattern and also how big it was! Churchville Nature Center provides safe, friendly, and educational experiences that encourage children to take advantage of the treasures that nature provides for us.Summer favorites are gardening, water play days, and swim days!
