Welcome to the 2020 Preschool Summer Program for ages 2.9 to 5 years

  • The DCH Preschool Summer Program is a continuation of our school year program with an emphasis placed on outside play experiences. Water play, gross motor activities and walks on our beautiful riverside grounds occur daily, and children have the chance to interact with their peers in developmentally appropriate classroom settings.

  • The Preschool-aged Program serves children 2.9 to 5 years. Children must be 2.9 years old by 6/22/20.
  • Children do not need to attend the DCH Preschool during the regular school year in order to participate in the summer program.

  • The summer program runs for 8 weeks from late June to mid-August.

  • Children must attend five days per week, full or half-day options are available.

  • Children attending the preschool, who have also registered for swim lessons through the Dedham Community House, will be walked over to the DCH Pool for their lessons by DCH Preschool staff. 

  • There are a limited number of swim lesson spots. It is recommended you register ASAP if interested in lessons. To register for lessons, when you get to the Event Registration Summary page click "Register for Another Event" and you will be able to add the lesson(s) you want.

  • Financial aid is available for tuition and registration fees. Please complete the online Financial Aid and registration form. Paper financial aid and registration forms can also be found on the DCH website (or CLICK HERE) and are available in the DCH Main Office. 


2020 Preschool Summer Program Registration begins on Monday, March 16. Both online and paper registration options are available. Registrations are processed in the order in which they are received. A non-refundable deposit equal to 1 week's tuition (based upon the schedule you are registering for) is due at registration (along with a $25 registration fee for new children only). Financial aid is also available for registration deposit and tuition (CLICK HERE). The tuition deposit will be applied to the last week of summer tuition and will be forfeited in the event of cancellation or early withdrawal.   Families are responsible for tuition for ALL weeks registered unless written notice is given prior to June 1st.
