Elementary Summer Programs, Classes, and Camps

Our elementary summer program for 7 to 12 year-olds gives children opportunities to explore areas of interest in more depth. We provide daytime care for children as well as Summer Camp programs. Children can experience the beauty of Santa Cruz and the Monterey Bay through
outdoor activities, boogie boarding, cooking, writing, singing, dancing, music and more.

Our elementary age summer program is open from 8:00 am to 5:00 pm on weekdays. The summer elementary program is open to the public after priority registration for our currently enrolled families has passed.

Toddler and Pre School Summer Programs

Our summer programs for children 18 months to 6 years are open to currently enrolled children and children enrolling in the fall. The goal of these classes is to provide a relaxed and interesting environment for our youngest students. The classes can be used for care throughout the summer or for a short session of enrichment. Each session has a special focus within the regular Montessori class environment.

“The greatest thing about Santa Cruz Montessori, for me, is all the great friends I made while I was there. The environment allows you to develop great relationships with people.”
