Starry Garden Summer Camps
June 11 to August 10, 2018 for Ages 2 to 10 years old
Summer is for discovery
Project-based learning promotes independent learning. Children can learn to be in charge of their own learning in our summer camps. Confidence, for our children, comes from being able to use new skills to figure things out, to create, to learn. Opportunities to learn through experience motivate children to have curiosity, self-reliance and a can-do attitude.
Working in teams, children are inspired to read new things, write down their own ideas, share in deep discussions, and work with a team to create, learn and teach. Our group discussions help a child's growing mind to understand.
