Toddler Camp

Alta Vista’s special toddler-sized camp is for children 16 months to 3 years who are currently enrolled or will be entering Alta Vista’s toddler class in the Fall.
Toddler campers continue to follow their familiar daily routine that started during the school year. In addition to their Montessori lessons, enjoy lots of outdoor activities and special projects. They treasure playground and water play, taking buggy rides around the school, caring for their garden and picking flowers, vegetables and herbs. Toddler campers eat their snack or lunch outside at our shaded “picnic grove”, but should it rain or get too hot, they eat inside in the air conditioned environment. In July, we proudly participate in our Independence Day Sidewalk Parade and throughout the summer we enjoy special visitors such as puppet show, magic show, exotic or farm animals, musical concert, etc.

From Weird & Wonderful Science, to Fun With Sculpting to Real Life Heroes (and many more), your child will have a blast! Primary camp is filled with outdoor adventures, water play and games where children can develop new skills and interests, make new friends and continue to become more self-confident while building their talents, curiosity and creativity.
