June 24 – July 19, 2019

Your child can perform in a musical, explore architecture, cook a story or grow a garden of friends. These are just some of the fun and exciting experiences our program offers.

Taught by UCLA Lab School faculty, our classes are designed to actively involve children in the learning process. They provide a boost in science, math, reading, writing, social studies and art, all in the context of a nurturing, caring and fun environment. Our campus adds to the enjoyment by offering a relaxing, natural setting, with play yards and even a Redwood Forest. Sports Camp and Extended Day continue the fun with plenty of time to play, learn new skills and enjoy friends.

Many of our families return year after year!

There is also time for imaginative free play, with lots of LEGOs, blocks, cars, dolls and dress-up materials for inspiration.
