How You Can Save Money This Summer

Summer will be upon us before you know it. Do you have a plan for your child or children? Summer is often a time that children look forward to, but it can also be a time that can be stressful for parents. If you are a working parent, then this can be even more stressful as you begin to look and explore the different activities, programs and even perhaps child care services. Which in turn brings about the thought of cost! Why not check out Malena’s Mini School Summer Day Camp? For as little as $22 a day they’ll get breakfast, lunch and a snack. They will also engage in TONS of activities like swimming and going to the movies. Think about that for a second.

If you had to find child care service for the ENTIRE day, would you be able to foot that bill including meals for as little as $22? Let’s say the hourly child care rate was $10 per hour for just a half day or 4 hours, you are already looking at $40 a day. If you were to put them in for the entire day, then those costs could shoot through the roof. Have we got your attention yet? When it comes down to it, you really just want a program that will take care of them. You really just want a program where they can learn AND have fun at the same time. Realistically, near the top of this list is a summer camp that won’t leave you having to take on a second job. Which is why we would suggest Malena’s Mini School Summer Day Camp.

There are two locations for you to choose from and they’ll be able to participate in tons of fun activities such as:

  • Swimming – Summer gets hot. You already know that. What better way for your kids to cool off than to go swimming? We will ensure your children’s safety any time they are in the water.
  • Cooking – Who doesn’t like to eat? Your child will be able to learn how to make simple dishes that they can share once they get home. They will always be supervised, so any cooking that will need to be done beyond basic mixing of ingredients will have one of our staff members there to assist.
  • Crafts – What summer camp would be complete without any craft activities? You probably remember doing arts and crafts as a child in school, or even in your own summer camp experiences. We’ll have many different craft activities for them to choose from, and we’ll be sure that they can take some things home to share with you.
  • Movies – We won’t always be on the go, so if you are worried that your child may be getting too much physical activity, please rest assured knowing that we do have times of relaxation. We’ll be watching movies that your child will enjoy and perhaps may even ask you to watch with them once they get home.
  • Field Trips – What was one of your fondest memories of school? If you are like many, then your answer will probably be field trips. We’ll be taking the kids on a variety of field trips throughout the summer. These trips will help build memories for years to come, just as you have through your own experiences as a child.

Our staff has decades of experience in education, training and daycare. Our very own founder, Malena Morehouse, has over 30 years of directing Preschool daycare and is still going strong. You can rest assured that we not only know how to teach and care for your child, but we also know how to have fun! This is a summer day camp that you’ll child will look forward to. Guess what happens when summer rolls around and children just sit around the house? If you guessed a summer full of boredom and laziness, then you guessed correctly. We want to put an end to that. What better way to get them away from the video games and junk food, than to send them to our summer camp?

Here are some of the benefits your child will be able to enjoy as a result of attending:

  • Fun – The gift of fun! Yes, we just had to put this in there because it is really the foundation of why your child will want to attend. They WILL have fun. If they don’t want to have fun then tell them too bad, they’re going to have LOTS and LOTS of fun.
  • Constant Socialization – If you want your child to interact more with other children, or to just work on their social skills, then this is a camp that you will want them to attend. We will be doing a variety of activities that will call for them to socialize amongst their peers.
  • All In One – Some summer programs have costs for this, that and the other. The one-time activity fee plus the weekly tuition will cover it all. You are getting childcare, meals, activities and constant supervision. Oh yeah, and FUN. Did we mention that one already?

As you can see, we really believe this is THE summer camp for your child, but don’t just take our word for it. Here is what one happy parent had to say: “I love the after school program at Malena’s Mini School. The staff is great and keeps the kids busy. Their Summer Camp program is also great. The kids stay very busy.” – Alexandra F.

We hope that you do consider us for your child’s summer plans. We believe in our summer camp and believe that your child can benefit tremendously by attending.

We won’t make many guarantees, but we can guarantee you this! We guarantee that your child will be in a safe and loving environment, that they won’t be bored and that they will have fun. If you have any further questions regarding our summer camp, please don’t hesitate to contact us today. We look forward to hearing from you.

A Quality Checklist For Evaluating A Voluntary Pre School Facility

In November 2002, a constitutional amendment was passed in the state of Florida that established the Voluntary Pre-Kindergarten program for all 4-year olds. Documented studies have revealed that preschool is one of the best investments a city can ever make for its youth. According to a California study, the city and schools save $2.62 for every dollar spent on preschool. The savings comes through lower high school dropout and crime rates. A different study showed that children in Tampa schools will be less likely to need remedial education, more likely to read by the third grade, and have higher chances [...]

Why VPK Education Is The Right Choice For Your Child

Voluntary prekindergarten education programs (VPK) are designed to provide young children an educational jumpstart by enhancing their pre-math, pre-reading, social skills, and language skills. Studies show that children that are good readers and focused students at an early age are the most likely to be successful students later. VPK classrooms, such as Malena's Mini School, offer programs that promote high literacy standards, and provide curricula appropriate for your child's developmental stage, small class sizes, and qualified VPK teachers. Often children of that age group are left with babysitters while the parents work, however that does nothing to promote their well-being. [...]
