ages 4-6

Primaria South and West offer programs for 4-6 year-olds who are preparing for kindergarten or TK programs in the fall. These programs introduce kindergarten readiness in pre-literacy, math, and social skills through exploratory experiences in science, outdoor education, and the arts. STEAM curricula from GEMS (Lawrence Hall of Science) will provide rich science and math experiences, which will be supplemented by art, music, and outdoor play/ gardening in our garden schools.

Sessions are 2-weeks long, with 4 sessions running from 6/20-8/12. All Primaria camps must be paid in full to reserve a spot. EXTENDED CARE IS ONLY AVAILABLE AT PRIMARIA SOUTH.

Primaria West - Mountain Camp

In our final camp we explore the Sierra Nevada mountains and the unique habitats and animals there. We will consider the similarities and differences from the other regions, and think about how the animals and the way they use their habitats might be the same or different. We will learn about alpine lakes, and where the streams they feed go. We will visit the water cycle and phase changes as we think about how snow is formed.

In each camp we will explore the plants and animals in the region, and how they fit into a food web. Will think about what makes a good habitat, and the parts of an ecosystem in each region. We will consider how humans may explore and play there, and the current human impacts on the area. We will also think back to historical human activities and how native people may have lived in the region.

Let's learn about buildings, their structures, and why some are tall, small, different sizes and shapes. During this camp students will be learning all about buildings and their structures.

By the end of this camp, students will get to build their very own building out of clay.

Student's will learn about different zones of the open ocean, as well as the different parts of the coastline, from rocky shores, to seagrass beds and more! Teacher Kelly will share her experiences as a marine biologist in the field and in the laboratory, and we will learn all about the crazy creatures who inhabit our coastal waters and their habitats.

We will paddle out of the open ocean and into the delta in our Delta Camp. In this camp students will learn about this critical ecological zone, and the ways we can restore and manage our local delta. We will learn about the animals and plants that utilize this interesting habitat and about how wetlands function as a nursery for many animals. We will learn how people explore these areas and the activities we might do there, like kayaking, or birdwatching!

We will also have a lot of fun at the water tables defrosting animals that may have come frozen.

We will learn about the rivers that flow down through the hills and trickle into streams and creeks that eventually find the delta. We will think about food availability and other aspects of living near an ancient flood plain.
