  • **2022 Summer Program Registration begins Tuesday, March 15 at 9am**
  • 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 through Pre-K. Children entering Kindergarten in the fall, should enroll for the DCH Summer Camp at 671 High Street.
  • 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 with four 2-week sessions. Children must be registered for a consistent schedule throughout all weeks for which they are registered. The summer program offers two options: 5 full days or 5 half days.

Applications for the Preschool Summer Program are accepted beginning in March (March 15 for 2022 - orange button at top right). Applications must be completed online and are processed in the order in which they are received. Preference will be given to current families and those registered for the following school year. You will be notified by the end of April as to whether your child has a spot or has been placed on our waitlist. A non-refundable (unless we do not have a spot for your child) tuition deposit will be due at registration (along with a registration fee for new children only). The tuition deposit will be applied to the child's last weeks of summer tuition and will be forfeited in the event of cancellation or early withdrawal at any time, including prior to May 2. Families are responsible for tuition for ALL weeks registered unless written notice is given prior to May 2nd. Financial aid is available for registration fees and tuition. Financial aid applicants should complete and return the financial aid application, and return with required attachments. Form can also be found to the right under "PS Summer Forms."

After you have applied, any requests for changes (adds, drops, switching weeks) should be made through the Change Form.
