“Our summer session teachers at Brookridge Day School in Overland Park, KS are degreed and specialize in the development of gross and fine motor skills.”
Welcome to Summer Session at Brookridge!
The summer schedule allows for more flexibility, both in activities and choice of attendance. Our families have the opportunity to choose full-time or part-time attendance with rates based accordingly.
• Full-time Enrollment
A full-time enrollment requires a commitment to attend at least eight out of the ten weeks. Weekly tuition for each age or grade category may vary. These categories include: beginning preschool, potty-trained beginning preschool children (that are three years of age), preschool, kindergarten, or students having completed first, second or third grade may vary.
Children (kindergarten through Grade 4) coming for the summer only have tuition rate that may be different per week than those who attend Brookridge Day School during the school year.
• Part-time Enrollment
A part-time enrollment offers the family a chance to choose any 2 days of the week throughout the 10-week summer session, with vacation weeks. A child does not need to attend two days every week: however advance notice of days he/she will be attending would be appreciated.
In short, families would be under contract, either part-time or full time, from beginning of and throughout the summer. Your commitment to regular tuition payments (cash, check or Tuition Express) provides the necessary means of assuring that our contract teachers are able to be at the helm of a summer recreation program of the highest quality.
Summer Specials & Activities
With a special theme for each day of the week, we will be a busy place every day! Throughout the summer, we will cool off with lots of water play. From sprinkler parties, to swim lessons, to water experiments, we will make the most of the warm summer days!
• Swimming Lessons
Swim lessons for the children who have completed Pre-Kindergarten through Grade 4 will be through the Overland Park Parks and recreation Aquatics Program.
This will enable us to swim at the neighborhood Stonegate Pool – BEFORE IT OPENS FOR THE DAY – for sixteen 50-minute lessons coupled with free play at the end of each morning lesson. Our Brookridge staff is in the water along with the certified swimming instructors. We are so lucky to have this opportunity for our kiddos to participate in this life skill training at a time when the pool is closed.
Swim lessons will be held Monday through Thursday the weeks of June 12-15, 19-22, and July 17-20, 24-27 for $220.00.
You may divide the cost into two installments with $110.00 due by Friday, April 14th and $110.00 due by Friday, may 12th. Please include the swim form with your summer enrollment.
Swimming lessons cannot be prorated for absences and you must sign up for all four weeks of lessons. Please remember: swimmers may not be dropped off at the pool or picked up from the pool.
One Brookridge parent reports that her child had most successful experience taking swim lessons with his school friends. Seeing kids he knew following the teacher’s instructions, he was more likely to put his face in the water than he had been in previous public lessons! Swimming with peers really helped him excel in his swim skills.
