Primaria South and West offer programs for 4 and 5 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. 

Primaria sessions are the same at our West site and South site, but only sessions 2 and 3 will be run at our West site in Summer 2020.

Session 1: 6/22-7/2

The OCean

South Site Only

Learn what lives in different levels of the ocean, from angler fish with lanterns to tide-pool starfish, and learn basic ecology by connecting environments with what lives there. 

Make your own three dimensional diorama of one part of the ocean to take home. Learn why salt water is different than fresh water, and how oceans are different from lakes and rivers, in the context of our  own watershed. And get wet! The great thing about studying water systems in the summer is that we can get wet!

Session 2: 7/6-7/17

Bubble Festival!

South & West Site 

Immerse yourself in bubbles, big and little, some big enough to stand in!  Make various devices for blowing bubbles, and learn the science of what bubbles are, why they are round, and why they pop! 


This camp is inspired by the Lawrence Hall of Science GEMS (Great Explorations in Math and Science) book Bubble Festival! 

Session 3: 7/20-7/31

Sun, moon, and stars!

South & West Site

Long summer nights are a good time to look at the stars.  Learn how earth relates to its solar system, its moon, and the stars in the sky.  Look for the moon at night, and see if it sneaks around in the daytime, and why. Make a solar system model of your own. 


This camp is inspired by the Lawrence Hall of Science GEMS (Great Explorations in Math and Science) book Sun, Moon, and Stars.

Session 4: 8/3-8/14


South Site Only

Explore WHY beautiful butterflies are colored as they are. Observe real butterfly eggs as they hatch into caterpillars and butterflies.  Learn basic biology concepts like camouflage and life cycles, while enjoying stories like Eric Carle’s The Hungry Caterpillar and making your own symmetrical butterfly art work.


We will use the Lawrence Hall of Science Great Explorations in Math and Science (GEMS) book Animal Defenses, Hide a Butterfly along with Peregrine-inspired stories, science, and art. 


Extended Care will no longer be offered for ECC students in Summer 2020.
