Children playing outdoors at MSDThe Montessori School of Duluth’s summer Children’s House program runs from the week after school ends in June, through late August. Children who attended MSD’s Children’s House during the last school year, as well as those who are enrolled for the next school year, are eligible to attend.

Families may elect to attend any (and as many as they would like) of the weeks offered; however, students must sign up for at least two consecutive weeks at a time. Keeping continuity in the Children’s House is important, especially when the make-up of the class may change due to families’ varying summer schedules.

Our Lead Guides will share the summer schedule in leading the classroom, with dates to be determined. Families may choose a morning option that includes lunchtime (children bring their own lunch) and runs 8:30 AM to 12:30 PM, or an all-day option with the hours 8:30 AM – 3:30 PM. As during the school year, before- and after-care is available starting at 7:30 AM and ending at 5:30 PM.

We will combine our standard Children’s House program with seasonal activities such as gardening, walks to Morley Heights park and playground, water activities, and more.
