MMS offers a complete summer program, with morning and afternoon camps and classes, as well as childcare. The program is available on a weekly basis or as part of an annual tuition. Each year we publish a catalog of the summer activities available. Extended time care (referred to as ETC) before and after camp is also available for an additional fee. Summer hours are 7am until 6pm, Monday through Friday. We will be closed July 1-5, 2019 in observance of Independence Day and August 26-30, 2019 for school-wide professional development.
“Summer in the Meadow” programs are one week long. You may enroll for one week, all weeks, or any combination of weeks. To register, complete and submit registration and payment online, in person, or via postal mail. When enrolling more than one child, please submit a separate registration for each child.
Please be sure that the course(s) you select matches the grade, your child’s age, or the classroom they’ve attended for the 2018-2019 school year. What program they attend depends on a few factors. If you’re unsure what program you should register for, please contact Emily Yockey at 734-241-9496.
Space is limited and many camps fill quickly. We recommend you register as early as possible. Waitlists will be kept in the event a camp fills. You will be notified if a space becomes available.
Refunds, Withdrawals, & Transfers
To guarantee your child’s enrollment in a class, registration and full payment must be received at least one week prior to the first day of camp. Enrollment fees may not be returned should your child be withdrawn from a camp. A withdrawal is defined as dropping a class without replacing it with another. A transfer is defined as dropping one class and replacing it with another. Transfer fees may be assessed at the discretion of the Director of Finance.
If we do not meet the minimum number of students, the summer camp will be canceled and you will be notified of the cancellation.
Daily Needs (Lunch, Water, Sunscreen)
This year, The Monroe Family YMCA will provide a healthy lunch to full day students in preschool and elementary camps, through the SFSP (Summer Food Service Program). Toddler students should bring a packed lunch and all other students are able to bring their lunch, should they wish.
Hydration is important in the summer! We ask that you please provide your child(ren) with a labeled and filled water bottle each day at camp. Students may always refill their bottles from our drinking fountain.
Please apply sunscreen to your child before they arrive at camp. We take every precaution to keep your child(ren) from getting too much sun. If you would like your child to have sunscreen reapplied throughout the day, please send in a labeled container of sunscreen. Be sure you let the staff know that your child has sunscreen and needs to reapply.
Payment of Class Costs and Fees
All registrations and fees are due in full one week prior to the start date of the camp your student will be attending.
All children, including Meadow Montessori students, are required to submit basic emergency forms. A new form is not required if you have a current form on file (please check with the office to see that you are up-to-date). These forms must be submitted prior to the Camp and are due by the first day of camp. For our students safety, your child will not participate in a camp without this information.
Allergies, Food Allergies, & Sensitivities
Meadow Montessori School must be notified if your child has an allergy, food allergy, or food sensitivity prior to the enrollment and the student’s start date. Please provide the school with all necessary documentation, emergency information, and necessary medications. Please be advised that some camps provide snacks or work with food and keep this in mind when choosing camps in which to enroll your student. All staff members are trained in anaphylaxis emergencies. We have two epinephrine injection pens on the school grounds, and take every precaution possible to avoid any food allergy emergency. We request that if your child does have an allergy to food that you please fill out FARE’s “Food Allergy & Anaphylaxis Emergency Care Plan.” You may provide a current copy of this form, or you can print this document here to complete and provide on your student’s first day of camp. Please note: all students with a known allergy requiring a prescription injectable or other medication, your doctor’s signature is a required element of this form.
Arrivals and Departures
Students must be signed IN when they arrive and OUT when they leave daily by a parent/guardian or other person responsible for child’s care. Rosters for signing in/out are kept on clipboards in the Commons (located in the ETC room in the Elementary Building and in hallway for Early Childhood Building). It is recommended that students arrive 10 to 15 minutes early on the first day of each week to leave time for signing in and locating classrooms.
Meadow Montessori School does not discriminate on the basis of race, color, religion (creed), gender, gender expression, sexual orientation, or ethnicity in any of its activities or operations.
