Summer Break

Come Spend the Summer with Us!

Give your children a summer full of fun, friends, and discovery.

Our flexible program is full of opportunities for joy and learning that your kids will love, including a variety of themes and adventures. Come all day, for part of the day, for specific weeks, or all summer long!

The Summer Break program is open to all families and to all children—even those who don’t attend KinderCare during the rest of the year—so be sure to invite your friends and family members to join in the fun, too!

Themes vary by site and are selected based on school and family interest.

Summer Break Themes

Our School-Age Store

Kids will set up, open, and run their very own store! They’ll learn crucial life and business skills, such as what goes into operating a business, managing money, and how goods are produced and sold, all while having a great time with friends.

Puzzling Puzzles

Children get the chance to create and solve their own puzzles! They’ll work collaboratively on everything from crossword puzzles, mazes, and word searches to jigsaw puzzles, math puzzles, and number puzzles, and also participate in outdoor activities that complement the theme.

Clash of the Colors

Kids are divided into teams named after the primary colors (red, yellow, and blue). They will compete in exciting math-, science-, and art-related activities to learn all about colors while earning points to lead their team to victory!

Community Service

In this unit, children will learn more about the places that make up their community, such as libraries, parks, and schools. They will then volunteer their time and energy to give back to their community through a collaborative project of their choice. 

Buzz About Bees

Your budding naturalist will get to learn all about honeybees and the vital role they play in our ecosystem. Kids will participate in a variety of collaborative learning activities related to insects, and discover what makes bees special among them.

Computer-Free Coding

Kids will get an introduction to the basic principles of coding and its most common applications, including video games and web sites. In a world where technology’s role grows more important each day, every child can benefit from learning about coding.

Superheroes Among Us

Kids don their cape and mask, and let their inner superheroes loose. They’ll create their own superhero personas, give themselves super abilities, and then decide how to use them for the good of the community. With topics ranging from superfoods to honoring their own personal heroes, this session soars!

Mixed-Up Fairy Tales

Children will have some fun turning traditional tales on their heads as they embark on an adventurous romp through well-known stories. They’ll role-play main characters, discover common links between stories, and rewrite the endings.

All About Jungles and Rainforests

Kids get a chance to explore the most fascinating, exotic, and vibrant places on the planet: jungles and rainforests! They’ll build a rainforest canopy, populate it with sleek jaguars and majestic gorillas, and learn about environmental threats to and preservation efforts for these vital habitats.

Spy School

Kids can delve into the intrigue and espionage of the secret world of spies. They’ll learn the tricks of the trade (like cracking codes, analyzing clues, and solving mysteries), create their own spy fiction, and will look the part in their secret agent costumes!

Junior Inventors

Children will turn their incredible ideas into amazing inventions. They’ll learn about great inventors from the past and how they succeeded, and then prepare their own innovations to present at an “Invention Convention.” Ready, set, invent!

A Closer Look at Trees and Birds

When it comes to learning about these natural wonders, the sky’s the limit! From photosynthesis to using different tools as “bird beaks” to eat with, plants and animals can teach children so much about the world around them.

Circus Science

Kids will learn what makes the big top tick as they practice circus tricks and discover the scientific properties that make them possible. Children will walk on stilts, practice juggling, and be amazed by gyroscopic stability and centrifugal force while clowning around!

Oceanography

Dive into the world’s oceans and discover the plants and animals that call it home. Your young oceanographer in training will surf the seas of knowledge, from tide charts to echolocation to environmental concerns.

Insects and Spiders

Kids shouldn’t let these little creatures bug them—after all, they’re a huge part of our natural world! Young explorers will go on a fun hike to find insects and arachnids, make bug-inspired snacks, create bug trading cards, and share their newfound knowledge with their friends and families.
