The Montessori Summer Experience

The Hilltop Montessori Summer Experience brings the concept of the Montessori classroom to those already enrolled in a Montessori environment and those seeking to enroll in the future. Our mission is to provide a quality Montessori environment in an environment which fosters a child’s love of learning and a respect for self, others, community and the world. We look forward to seeing you on campus during the Summer of 2017.

The summer experience at Hilltop Montessori includes a healthy morning snack but parents are asked to bring lunch and a drink if they would prefer that their child has a drink at lunch other than water. All children should be picked up at the time listed as HMS does not have before/after care during the summer. Sessions are to be paid in full by May 1, 2017 and are non-refundable. If you attend only one week of a two week session, you are still responsible for the two week session. As always, HMS summer experiences are subject to cancellation with a refund if there is not enough interest in a particular session.
