Having fun on a trip to a local farm.

Back by popular demand! Green Valley School is having a 9-week summer program this year that will begin on Monday, June 16th, 2014 and run through August 15th (this leaves a 1 week break before school starts to prepare the classroom for the fall session). Children ages 3 to 6 are welcomed to be part of the summer program.

We will be having a wide variety of activities this summer for your children. The Capitol Center for the Arts in Concord and the Palace Theatre in Manchester offers theater productions especially geared for preschool aged children during the summer months. The children have enjoyed the plays that they have attended in the past, and we look forward to seeing as many productions as possible.


Visiting with a fancy chicken.

Thursdays will be our field trip day. We would like to keep these field trips as simple and local as possible. Young children enjoy the simplest things most. Among our trip ideas are a trip to a farm, White's Park in Concord and Donati Park in Hooksett, strawberry picking (followed by making strawberry shortcake!), bumper bowling at Boutwell's, a fire station and police station trip, a library trip, and many other jaunts.


Working in the school flower garden.

The children will have circle everyday as part of the daily routine. Children can sing songs, listen to stories, teachers can go over rules and address any concerns. This daily routine benefits everyone and builds a sense of community, so the children can have a good time with little effort. The children will also maintain a flower and vegetable garden, play in the kiddie pool and sprinkler, build in the sand, and take nature walks. Don't forget the occasional walk to Lang's for an ice cream.


Riding Ms.Olson's horse.
