Acarath is a quality program. We strive to develop many skills and foster strong relationships with all the participants. We have a low staff turnover and excellent ratios.
Don't Lose the Edge
Our summer camp continues with our high academic standards. For the summer months we do accept older children in our program (up to 8 years old). Fridays are special outing or an in-house event.
Children completing their kindergarten year and older participate in our "Challenge" program. This program is designed to hone children's logic thinking skills. Children are challenged during a special daily session with thinking "outside the box" activities.
Every Friday for June and July we plan a special in house activity. These exciting days include craft making, outdoor water play with silly sporting events, a theme based dance and party day on our last Friday in July, and much more! Fridays are fun, and they give the children a chance to be outside and mingle with other classes. There are no Montessori or formal activity (including swim lessons) classes scheduled on our summer Fridays.
Children continue to develop academic and physical skills they have been working on throughout the year. With our regular Montessori sessions and activities and swimming, their day is very full! By the time their rest period comes, they are more than ready for some "down time".
Staff Student Ratio
Our ratios for staff to student are consistent throughout the year. Our classrooms maintain a ratio of one teacher for every seven children. In activities and the swimming pool, that ratio changes to one teacher for every 5 children. Our typical group size is 20 children. For our grade school children the group size may be larger.
