Summertime at Hester’s

Summertime is the time of year that many of us recall with the fondest memories of adventure and freedom to play all day long! At Hester’s we have a full summer program for all ages that combines the leisure of summer with the ongoing opportunity for children to learn and expand their experiences in the world. Children who do not currently attend Hester’s Creative Schools are welcome in our Summer Program.

Summer Program — Schoolagers

We offer a wide variety of activities for our schoolagers (children five to twelve years of age) to learn and have fun during the summer weeks. We know our schoolagers need the fine balance of structured programs combined with the feeling of independence to choose how to use their "time off from school." Our summer days are packed with fun on the playground, weekly trips to the swimming pool, field trips, arts and crafts, and some quiet time for reading and learning in an atmosphere that does not feel like "school." During the summer months we host a variety of visitors to talk about their jobs and hobbies. Our summer weekly learning themes include:

  • Splish —Splash
  • Let The Games Begin
  • When I Grow Up
  • Going On a Trip
  • Explorations
  • Cooking
  • My Favorite Book

Our field trips are planned around the weekly themes and include trips to fun places like:

  • The Recycling Center
  • WFMY-TV
  • Skating
  • Bowling
  • Papa John’s Pizza
  • Lowe’s Food Store

If your child currently attends Hester’s we hope they will continue in our Summer Program.

If your child is not currently enrolled please make an appointment to visit the location of your choice and view our classrooms and playgrounds and hear more about our Summer Program plans. Please note there is a small activity fee for some of our summer field trips.

Summer Program — Toddlers to Four-Year Olds

Hester’s offers a fun-filled safe environment for children to enjoy all the pleasures that summer offers. We believe summer is a time for children to enjoy the outdoors, to play in the sun, have picnics, run through the sprinklers, play in the wading pools and learn about the gifts nature bestows at this time of year. Our teachers plan learning around weekly themes focused on studies of the ocean, animals, families and colors. Many of the activities are held under shaded canopies on the playground. We protect our young children from excessive heat and sun and make certain they get the beverages and rest they need throughout the warmer months. Our current summer program themes include these features and more:

  • Summer Time Fun
  • At The Beach
  • Feelings
  • Vacations
  • All About Me
  • Creepy Crawlies
  • Safety While We Play

If your toddler to four-year old is currently in our schools they will automatically be part of our Summer Program. If you are looking for a safe and fun summer plan for your child, call now to reserve a place for your child in our summer program.
