Pre-Children’s House: (Ages 20-36 months) – Main Campus – 2600 Summit Avenue, Waukesha, WI
Your child will enjoy a wide variety of rewarding activities in a Montessori toddler environment.  We will focus on practical life experiences and encountering nature to build concentration, independence and confidence.  The children will learn care of the environment and self-care skills.  Hand-washing, dressing and toileting are included in self care lessons.  Children will have the opportunity to garden, create art and explore their own interests while using Montessori materials.  If staying past 11:45 a.m., please have your child bring a nutritious, packed lunch to be served at 11:45 a.m.  All children will nap from 12:30 p.m. until 2:50 p.m.  Children must be registered for a minimum of two days per week.

Children’s House: (Ages 3-5) – Main Campus – 2600 Summit Avenue, Waukesha, WI

Make it a memorable summer for your child with hands-on, fun-filled, enrichment classes.  Your child will take part in a variety of activities each week.  Literature, song, dance, cooking, art projects and activities await.  The excitement all happens in a familiar and safe environment—a Montessori classroom.

Consistent with the Montessori philosophy, classrooms are prepared with developmentally appropriate materials for the various needs of your child. This program provides an excellent opportunity for students to maintain and improve upon skills acquired during the preceding school year. Prior Montessori experience is not required as it also serves as an introduction for students joining the Montessori classroom in the fall.

Children will be encouraged to explore as they are supported on their personal journey to increase their independence, expand their social and emotional development, and maintain or strengthen their academic skills during the long summer vacation.

Your child will work with a highly qualified team of teachers. A certified Montessori teacher will be available to assist your child as they manipulate the beautiful Montessori materials. Additionally, early childhood specialists will manage the integration of the celebration focus area in the classroom and oversee the outdoor
environment.

Lower Elementary: (Grades 1-3) – Main Campus – 2600 Summit Avenue, Waukesha, WI
Students will have the opportunity to experience different worlds and areas of interest. Mornings are a time of exploration in the classroom with different themes each week; a field trip related to the week’s area of study may be scheduled.  Afternoons will feature a variety of activities, including swimming on Mondays, Wednesdays and Fridays. In addition to the themed programming available to the elementary students, we also offer Math & Language Enrichment. Math & Language Enrichment is offered to Lower Elementary students (1st – 3rd grade) each morning from 8:00 a.m. to 9:00 a.m. and is limited to 10 children per week. In order for the Math & Language program to be effective, families must select five consecutive days on a week-by-week basis. A Montessori trained teacher will be able to work with your student in order to give more attention to areas of challenge and/or guide them into advanced materials and lessons.  This will give them an amazing advantage and strong preparedness going into the next school year.  This program is ideal for incoming first graders, giving them a soft introduction to the elementary classroom as well as those going into grades 2 & 3 who are looking to continue their momentum of learning all year long.

Upper Elementary: (Grades 4-8) – Main Campus – 2600 Summit Avenue, Waukesha, WI
This year’s Summer Program features classes specifically for grades 4 through 8. The classes typically begin at 9:00 a.m. and end at noon unless otherwise specified.

Students will join others in Elementary outside of Feature Class times.  Please note that classes have limits to the number of participants and are charged at a weekly rate.  For consistency, participants should be able to attend all five days of class within any given week. 

Summer Math Practice:  (Grades 4-8) – Main Campus – 2600 Summit Avenue, Waukesha, WI
Those students wishing to maintain their math skills over the summer may attend practice sessions on varied Tuesdays and Thursdays as seen below from 1:00 p.m. to 3:00 p.m. in the Middle School classroom.  Participants will work primarily to review past lessons and maintain skills, but some may be able to learn new lessons depending on their level of ability.  On most days, we will have a group activity after individual work time.  Note: It is not required that a student attends all sessions.  Sessions are reserved for students currently enrolled at MSW and entering grades 4 – 8.  Rate of $14.00 per day. Dates TBD.
