    As little as possible. :lol:

    Actually, we'll be breaking in the new kids we are getting. As several of my 5's leave for Kindergarten, I'll get new one's to replace them.

    My class was within the public school system (preschool special ed./inclusion) and today was my last day. I am going to be doing a few extended year services (speech and language therapy sessions) for a couple of my kids.

    We're open year round, so yes I will be working this summer. I am taking a week off in June and a few days here and there. It's kind of different in the summer, maybe call it less work and more play. I personally don't like it as much as the school year. We will be walking to the library, swimming, going to parks, etc.

    I'm running ours as a day camp for the summer - and we're a small bunch. Different theme each week, the first week is X-Treme Science, followed by Proud to Be an American, Awesome Athletes, Celebration of Nations, Amazing Animals, WCA's Got Talent, The Great Outdoors, Let's Go Green!, Kids in the Kitchen and Community Kids.

    I'm looking forward to it - lots of guest speakers, field trips and water play! :) My husband asked if he could come to camp for the summer instead of working. lol

    Your group sounds like mine. we are small and mixed age. We have one overarching theme and this year it is Beautiful Earth. Then inside that are smaller topics like camping, recycling and so on.

    We have swim lessons every year (regardless of theme), walk to farmers' market and go to the library every other week. this year we hope to also hike in our local area w/ a new city park ranger!

    I'll also be here this summer; our center is open year round. I work at a center that prepares a curriculum for you (which has its good parts and bad parts), but I've been looking through the summer curriculum and it looks like they expect us to accomplish about the same amount as we do in the school year. I think I'm going to have to rework some of the activities to be outside and less obviously educationally... I want my kids to get a summer! Haha.

    I'm taking a week off though to enjoy some quality camping time with my family :D

    Anyone else planning vacations?

    we are open year round. OUr program ends june 12th and then we have a transition week and then it's usmmer program time. We will be doing more free play, crafts, water play and some field trips, having movie day once a week too I think. My kids need a wind down day after field trips so I figured movie day the next day might be good!

    We are open year round. We have a fun summer camp planned with field trips and swim days! I still do some academics just because they are 5. I only lost 5 kids for the summer (parents are ISD teachers).
