Welcome to the 2021 Preschool Summer Program
Please note that registration opens on April 1st at 9am
To avoid processing fees, we suggest paying via e-check. Credit cards also accepted (with a fee).
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 Summer Program serves children ages 2 to 5 years (entering Kindergarten in the Fall)
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 June 21 to August 13. There is no minimum week requirement for the summer program.
Children must attend five days per week, full or half-day options are available. Full day hours are 8am-4pm and half day 8am-12:30pm. Drop-off and pick-up times are staggered so exact schedules vary.
Children must be registered for a consistent schedule throughout all weeks for which they are registered.
No swim lessons during the school day for summer 2021. See Current Offerings (beginning April 1) for registration for evening and weekend lessons.
Financial aid is available for tuition and registration fees. Please complete and return the Financial Aid form (CLICK HERE).
Registrations are processed in the order in which they are received prioritizing currently enrolled families. A non-refundable registration fee of $25 is required. A deposit equal to 1 week's tuition (based upon the schedule you are registering for) is due at time of enrollment. The tuition deposit will be applied to the child's last week of summer tuition and will be forfeited in the event of cancellation or early withdrawal at any time, including prior to June 1. Families are responsible for tuition for ALL weeks registered unless written notice is given prior to June 1st.Once we determine that we have a space for your child you will recieve a confirmation and payment of your deposit is due to hold your child's space.
