  • About the Preschool Summer Program

    • **2023 Summer Program Registration begins Monday, March 20 at 9am**
    • The DCH Preschool Summer Program is a continuation of our school year program with an emphasis placed on outside play experiences. Water play, gross motor activities, and walks on our beautiful riverside grounds occur daily, and children have the chance to interact with their peers in developmentally appropriate classroom settings.
    • The Preschool Summer Program serves children 15 months old through Pre-K. Children entering Kindergarten in the fall, should enroll online for the DCH Summer Camp located at 671 High Street.
    • Children do not need to attend the DCH Preschool during the regular school year in order to participate in the summer program.
    • The summer program runs for 8 weeks from late-June to mid-August with four 2-week sessions. Children must be registered for a consistent schedule throughout all weeks for which they are registered. The summer program offers two options: 5 full days or 5 half days.


    MARCH 20, 2023- Preschool summer camp registration opens online beginning at 9 am. Applications for the Preschool Summer Program are processed in the order in which they are received, and registration will be remain open until sessions are full. A $25 application fee will be due upon registration for all families.

    ***Priority will be given to current families and those registered for the following school year so long as space remains available.  

    END OF APRIL- Families will be notified as to whether their child has a spot or has been placed on the waitlist. Once notified, a non-refundable deposit, equal to one week’s tuition (per child) will be invoiced, through our Brightwheel app, and due to reserve the spot. The tuition deposit will be applied to the child's last week of summer tuition and will be forfeited in the event of cancellation or early withdrawal at any time, including prior to May 15.

    MAY 15- Any changes made to registration must be given in writing PRIOR to May 15th via our Summer Change Form. Families are responsible for tuition for ALL weeks registered unless written notice is given prior to May 15th.
