At DREAM, the meaning of summer has always been core to our foundation. That’s why we operate on an extended-day, extended-year basis summer—we believe that model is key to student success. Summer programming is an essential part of DREAM’s Grow the Whole Child education model, and our expectation is that every DREAM scholar signs up for summer programming of some sort. Choosing the DREAM option helps ensure your child has continuity between the support they’re receiving during the school year and the summer months—including social-emotional, academic, and physical wellness development.
Here’s some of what DREAM’s summer programming offers for you and your child:
Preventing learning loss is a huge part of our summer programming, and for 95% or more of participants in recent years, it’s worked to keep them at or above grade level in between semesters. We know that COVID has had a significant impact on learning and social-emotional development; this summer, more than ever, it’s critical that your student participates to ensure they are prepared for the start of the school year.
But our strongest emphasis is on relationship building and social-emotional health. That’s the kind of support that children need year-round, not just during the school year.
We offer programming for scholars at all grade levels—and all of our programming is free.
This summer, we are preparing for predominantly in-person programming and will continue to uphold the health and safety structures that have been successful throughout the school year.
We hope that you’ll take a moment to register your scholar/s today.
