2020 Summer Programs

Help Your Child To SHINE This Summer!

We are so excited to be up and running in our brand new, spacious, 4500 square foot indoor/ outdoor Rowley location.  As always, we are dedicated to helping your child build the skills needed to be their most independent and confident selves!!  We have been hard at work developing a new summer program to fit the needs of our community while keeping up with the most current health, safety and social distancing practices.  We can’t wait to welcome you!

 

We understand the importance of summer programming to maintain skill development while on break from school. This summer may be even more important than ever, and we are so happy to help your child build a strong and stable bridge to bring them into the new school year.  We are offering various flexible summer options in accordance with COVID re-entry protocols, including: (1) an 8 week summer session of weekly KidSHINE bootcamp classes for PreK, Elementary (rec and therapeutic) and Teens (2) 2 and a half hour, 1 day/ week program in early July (4 weeks),  (3) week long intensive programs (beginning in the end of July)  in preparation for the return to school (4) one hour week/ 5 week outdoor bike riding clinic (modified from our original program). Additionally, we are dedicated to following all of the current state regulations and recommendations regarding personal spacing, hygiene practice and surface cleaning.  

1x/ Week Programs:

​Offered 1x/ week for 4-5 weeks to help ease children back into the “in person” routine.  These programs will introduce concepts gradually and allow for weekly practice at home between sessions.  Each week will have a central theme to teach motor and  focus skills while also encouraging social pragmatics and teaching specific tools for use at home.  Class sizes will be small with a maximum student enrollment of 7 per class.  Each class will be co-taught by 2-3 experienced staff and we will have 1-2 interns assisting to make sure that each child gets the support they need.

Week Long Intensive Programs:

​Offered as a week- long (Monday – Thursday) intensive skill building camp (must sign up for the whole week).  Fun, creative and engaging activities will provide your child with the opportunity to set a strong base for the upcoming school year.  Each week will have a central skill focus while also building upon gross motor skills, fine motor skills, social pragmatics, sensory processing and tools for use in September when school resumes.  Class sizes will be small with a maximum student enrollment of 7 per class.  Each class will be co-taught by 2-3 experienced staff and we will have 1-2 interns assisting to make sure that each child gets the support they need.

This KidSHINE Bike Riding Program focuses on one bike riding concept each week and combines OT principles with the Strider Method to create a safe, confidence-building approach to learning how to ride a two- wheeler. This program is appropriate for any child who expresses that he/she is ready to learn to ride a bike and who benefits from a multi-sensory, concrete, sequential approach to motor learning! This program has shifted from a one week intensive program to a one time/ week program for 5 weeks. Children should bring their own bikes and helmets to this program and the age range is flexible.
