4s on the Farm will have playful, tailored activities to enjoy each day under the supervision of experienced early childhood teachers! Whether it’s outdoor activities, exploration invitations, or playing, your child will be excited and engaged. There will be a careful balance between indoor and outdoor experiences to ensure this summer is both enjoyable and safe for everyone.
Each week of 4s on the Farm will consist of the following activities:
- Pasture time with the Keystone animals – here 4s will work with the older Summer on the Farm campers to feed and water the llamas, donkeys, sheep, chickens, and goat. While on the farm, the children are responsible for all care given to the animals each day, including mucking the pasture, brushing the animals, collecting eggs, and feeding/watering.
- Daily outdoor & water play in kiddie pools and sandboxes with running water (plus a mud kitchen!) to provide plenty of space for creative play, social interaction, and cooperative exploration.
- A lunch time spent spent picnicking on our beautiful school campus along with the older Summer on the Farm campers.
- Daily storytime with books related to a weekly theme, to serve as an imagination spark for weekly art processes and designed play provocations.
- Indoor sensory, art, and fine motor play with clay, blocks, magnets, ramps, and more! Indoor time will also include an hour of rest during the hottest part of the mid-afternoon for cooling off and resetting.
