Summer School

Cow Hollow School Summer Program 2014:

Cow Hollow School is once again, delighted to offer our Summer Program. The CHS Summer Program is full of opportunities for wonder, play, discovery, creativity and exploration.We support children’s creative and critical thinking within rich inquiry based learning experiences. Each session’s activities will emphasize one of the children’s expressive languages (examples: drawing, sculpting, storytelling, movement, cooking, gardening, etc) and a location. Weekly we will embark on fantastical and scientific journeys within the many majestic locations within the Presidio including Crissy Field, El Polin Springs, Andy Goldsworthy’s Wood Line and Spire, community gardens and many, many more.

We are looking forward to another amazing summer!

Summer Program at CHS:

  • Program Hours: 9:00 to 2:00 pm, Monday – Friday, with the exception of no camp on July 4th.
  • Age Cut-off: Available to children 3 by July 1- 5.9 years of age. Due to our license regulations we cannot have children over 5.9 years of age by the first day of each session.
  • Groupings: Age groupings will be determined after enrollment. CHS prides itself on low teacher to child ratios. This will continue throughout the summer program.
  • Program Sessions: To encourage the same rich relationships based learning we will have three 2-week sessions (dates below). Tuition is discounted for signing up for the entire summer program (rates below). Should you need to miss a day or pick up early the tuition will not be amended.
  • Relationships: It is our goal, when possible, to have your child experience learning and playing with at least one of his/her fall teachers and some of his/her class members. Non-school year families attending in summer will be kept with children in their initial grouping.
  • Parent Participation: Although part of our school year program, parent participation is not required for our Summer Program…but is always welcome!
  • Snacks and Meals: Program tuition will include lunch and a snack! We are looking into a lunch program that adheres to our healthy school initiative (balanced, organic, and a preservative free food).

“I love how you have created different themes in the various segments and put so much richness into the children’s days. I really like how you inspire the children’s process. We are noticing at home that Amalia is really into ‘making things’ and ‘building things.’ It’s wonderful!”
