Early Childhood


The Early Childhood Discovery Program is an exciting Hamden Hall experience for your up and coming Preschooler to Kindergartener that includes weekly themes such as Space Explorers, Stars and Stripes, Dino-mania, Mad Scientists and many more for fun-filled summer days.  Activities your little Hamden Hall Hornet will be involved in are arts & crafts, dramatic play, creative movement & music, water play, outdoor exploration, science, local field trips, swimming lessons, and ‘special guest’ entertainment.

Our teachers and staff are dedicated professionals who are CPR trained and certified. Students need to bring in a morning & afternoon snack and lunch daily.  Please be advised we are a nut free facility.  All students need to be potty trained prior to the start of the program.  

The Early Childhood Discovery Program runs from June 15 - August 14, 8:00-3:30 with an extended day option, 3:30-5:30, available for an additional fee.  Register for one week or all nine!
