Summer Program

STEAM into Summer! Building off of Loft School’s 50-year history as the premier cooperative preschool in the tri-town area, we are pleased offer an enriching five-week summer program for children ages 2.9-5. Enrollment is limited to ensure a low student-teacher ratio and the summer program emphasizes learning through play.

Program Details:


COVID-19 UPDATE- Unfortunately, we have decided to cancel our 2020 Summer Program so that we can better prepare for the coming school year. We hope to see you back in 2021!

  • Sessions run Tues/Wed/Thurs
