Summer Club

Why do so many families turn to Mini-Skool and join our summer day care program? Because Mini-Skool’s Summer Club is the most fun-filled, action packed summer daycare program for school age children, based on more than 40 years of child care experience.

Summer Club is an exclusive club that invites children between 6-12 years of age to experience and participate in a variety of carefully planned, action packed bi-weekly themes. Qualified Early
Childhood Educators oversee the Summer Club and are actively involved in ongoing workshops to create the very best activities possible.

Unlike most summer daycare programs, Mini-Skool Summer Club creates a camp-like atmosphere while maintaining a safe and fully licensed setting.

Summer Club operates between 7am and 6pm daily. These hours allow Club Members to benefit from a full day of fun and parents have additional flexibility in planning their busy schedules. Some of our locations have even longer hours to serve you!

A free enrollment gift will get your child’s summer off to a great start. Frequent field trips and local excursions enhance the bi-weekly themes and
ensure a summer vacation guaranteed to be remembered by your child.

At no additional cost, Club Members will be invited to help themselves to a morning and afternoon snack available at the Snack Station. When on-site at the Club House, a nutritious cooked lunch
with dessert will be served. When out on field trips Club Members will receive a picnic style lunch.

I liked everything about Summer Club!

To ensure that our summer daycare program is focused on what the children want and what they like to do, we ask each child to complete a Summer Club Survey. We evaluate every comment and apply many of the suggestions and ideas to the following summer’s activities. We want to make sure that future years are as good as or even better than the past.

At the end of your child’s time at Summer Club, he or she will receive a certificate of completion to wrap up and remember the wonderful time spent with us.

Summer Club goodbye week is a time to look back on the amazing summer fun we have had. Kids put together an album of their time here at Mini-Skool using pictures, drawings, and best wishes from friends and teachers. This will be a keepsake that they can always have to remember their time here at Summer Club.

Children love Summer Club at Mini-Skool! Demand is always high and space is limited. (Please book early to avoid disappointment.)
