  • The DCH Preschool Summer Program is a continuation of our school year program with an emphasis placed on outside play experiences. Water play, gross motor activities and walks on our beautiful riverside grounds occur daily, and children have the chance to interact with their peers in developmentally appropriate classroom settings.

  • The Preschool Summer Program serves children 15 months old to entering Kindergarten.
  • Children do not need to attend the DCH Preschool during the regular school year in order to participate in the summer program.

  • The summer program runs for 8 weeks from late June to mid-August. Children must be registered for a consistent schedule throughout all weeks for which they are registered.  New for 2018: Children no longer need to be registered for at least 2 weeks.

  • Children attending the preschool, who have also registered for swim lessons through the Dedham Community House, will be walked over to the DCH Pool for their lessons by DCH Preschool staff.



2018 Preschool Summer Program Registration will begin March 5th. Registration can be completed online or with a paper form. Registrations are processed in the order in which they are received. A non-refundable tuition deposit equal to 1 week of tuition for the schedule you choose will be due at registration (along with a $25 registration fee for new children only). The tuition deposit will be applied to the last weeks of summer tuition and will be forfeited in the event of cancellation or early withdrawal.   Families are responsible for tuition for ALL weeks registered unless written notice is given prior to June 1st.
