Summer Program

The Summer Discovery Program at PHMS is designed to give children new and exciting experiences while being active and having fun!

We provide children with exciting learning opportunities in a stimulating environment.  Pincushion Hill’s  Summer Discovery Program is a dynamic, hands-on program designed for children entering preschool through grade five. Our program provides students with a nurturing atmosphere that encourages exploration, creativity, and lasting connections among the children.

Each day is filled with activities, crafts, games, and exciting academics as well as time to relax and recharge.  Children will be spending beautiful summer mornings in our thriving vegetable and flower gardens where they will be observing and learning about the planting, growth, care, and harvesting of our diverse variety of fruits and vegetables.  Summer students will have special classes in dance, cooking, music, games, and science. With a different theme every week, we learn more about our world and continue our education.

A weekly local Ashland community service person will come in to speak about their professions – Police, firefighter, mail carrier, dentist, DPW, general health, librarian, board of health, ice cream truck driver.

Weekly sessions begin June 18, 2018 and run through August 17, 2018.  Summer Hours are 8:30a.m. to 5:30p.m.  For convenience, we also offer an additional week of Day Care the week of August 27, 2018 through August 31, 2018.  Whether joining us for part of the summer or the entire 9-week program of exploration all children are sure to enjoy learning, playing, and creating in our indoor and outdoor classrooms.
