Summer Preschool

Pine Point's Evergreen summer semester offers preschool programming everyday from June 19 through July 28. Parents can choose a half-day, 3-week session or enroll their child in full-day programming from 8:30 a.m. – 5:30 p.m. when combined with the extended day option. To enroll children must be 3 years old and potty-trained.

On-campus classes are held in the preschool in the DeMovick Early Childhood Center which includes a dedicated playground directly connected to the classrooms.

Throughout the first term, Pine Point has an exciting opportunity to partner with the Mystic Aquarium and Institute for Exploration. The Aquarium will send an instructor to Pine Point School to co-teach with our preschool staff in the mornings, then the students and the Pine Point staff will take a daily field trip to spend the afternoon at the Aquarium.

Each week will have a theme and include science activities, peeks behind the scenes, meet and greets with the Aquarium staff, arts and crafts, touch tanks, and feeding opportunities!

Please note: session 1 afternoon pickup is at Mystic Aquarium.

Tuition: $900 for the 3-week course, mornings or afternoons; $1500 for full days

Curriculum Overview and Sample Schedule

Session 1 (June 20 - July 7) -- Mystic Aquarium

Don't miss out on Pine Point's first ever preschool collaboration with the Mystic Aquarium! We are fortunate to partner with our neighbors on this exciting, new opportunity that brings young learners behind the scenes at Mystic Aquarium. Keeping both learning institutes' missions in mind, teachers have designed weekly themes that allow students' natural curiosity to blossom.

  • Week 1: "Garden and Green." From frogs and pond life to reptiles, gardening and composing, learners will discover how people, animals and the environment benefit from gardening and thinking green!
  • Week 2: "Water World." You guessed it- water play! With a special visit to the Mystic Aquarium's water lab, a Sea Lion show, meeting a diver, and discovery of our Ocean Planet, students are sure to enjoy.
  • Week 3: "World of Animals." This week will include learning all about our incredible marine mammals and the awesome invertebrates that are found in the Mystic Aquarium's collection!

Throughout this three-week collaboration, students will experience all that Pine Point's campus and preschool classrooms have to offer from 8:30-11:30 a.m. and if staying a full day, will be transported to the Aquarium to engage in behind the scenes activities until pick-up at 4pm. Registration is filling up so don't wait to enroll your child for this unforgettable experience!
