This summer, join Montessori Preschool @ Copperfield on a trip around the world. Our FUN, Montessori-inspired mini camps explore the wonders of the world with opportunities for cooking, craft-making, and building. Our mini camps are designed for children ages 18 months to 6 years and include snack with milk and plenty of outdoor activities on our one-acre playground.  Each camp is led by trained Montessori teachers with over 50 years of combined experience.

From building Egypt’s famed pyramids to unearthing ice mummies in Argentina to engineering man-made islands in Holland, young preschoolers will build knowledge about world geography and history and develop key social skills to prepare for school and beyond. We’ll explore engineering marvels and develop practical life skills as we venture through our global recipe book. Of course, every Friday is FUN Friday!  We’ll have a catered lunch, exciting games and a re-cap of our adventures during the week. The Summer ends with Splash Day and an International Food Fest.

We have flexible sessions that fit busy summer schedules, with convenient access to the Langham Creek YMCA, Houston Swim Club, Gymnastics classes, and Cypress-Fairbanks ISD schools.

Our camps complement our ongoing Montessori programs from 6:30 PM – 6:30 PM; 8:30 AM – 2:30 PM; or 8:30 AM – Noon every day.   For prices and scheduling, please contact us.  For current, enrolled students, normal tuition rates apply.

For other students, each camp is $150/week from 9:00 – Noon.  Additional hours are $10/hour.  Fun Friday lunches are available for $4.
