Are meals and snacks included?

A nutritious lunch and two healthy snacks (morning and afternoon) are provided at no additional cost. Please advise us if your child has food allergies or restrictions so we can develop a plan to partner with you regarding your child’s nutritional needs. You can view our lunch menu each month on our website.

Do children in Summer VPK go on field trips?

We offer one or more field trips for students in Summer VPK. Field trips are carefully curated with the goal of providing depth and relevance to the concepts that the children encounter during their course of study.


How strict is your attendance policy?

Summer can be a very busy time for families. Please consider the attendance requirements before enrolling your child in Summer VPK. Children enrolled in the VPK program must attend 80% of the instructional time in order to qualify for the free program. This means that no more than eight days of the program can be missed.
