Turtles (ages 12-38 months)
The Turtles program closely mirrors our school-year Toddler Program in terms of the rhythm of the day: circle time, exploration of Montessori materials, cooking, culture, art, science projects, nature study and active play.
Summer also brings the addition of water play, which is always a favorite!
Bi-weekly themes allow children to explore topics through many lenses. In-house field trips and camp-wide celebrations round out the camp experience and expose children to the larger world beyond their classroom. Toddlers explore STEAM in their specially designed Maker Studio throughout the summer.
Highly Trained & Experienced Staff
To provide consistency for our youngest campers, the Turtles are led by year-round Montessori-certified WMS teachers. They will be assisted by many other school-year staffers and several college students.
Facilities & Campus
Our toddler classrooms are beautiful spaces, designed by our lead teachers to facilitate toddlers' development of independence, competence and confidence. The natural toddler playground, gross-motor playroom and acres of natural woodlands provide the perfect environment for a program supporting toddlers' physical, social and intellectual development.
