Summer at Canyon Creek Day School is so much fun! We have many classes and options available.


Our Preschool and Pre-K sessions consist of one-week sessions except for a two-week Phonics and Reading camp offered in June. Kindergarten and First Grade Jump Start consists of two four-week sessions. Students may choose from these sessions or enroll in all sessions. Preschool and Pre-K students have the option to add Stay and Play to their morning session. Stay and Play is from 12:00 to 3:00 p.m. All students on Plans may attend from 7:10 a.m. to 6:00 p.m.


Classes are separated by age. Students in Get-Ahead Reading and Math Minds will be grouped by ability within their classes. Jump Start students will be placed in small groups for reading, writing, and math to accommodate varying academic levels and to meet each child's individual needs.
