SUMMER PROGRAMS 2023

As an O.T. and Director of MMM, summer is MY favorite time of year!!

I love the freedom of exploring various parks and playgrounds, playing in the water and have the opportunity to work with our students in a creative and collaborative manner while supporting their social skills, fine motor and gross motor skills and secretly having them do academic work; writing, reading and even math. This year we are resurrecting our "Summer'S Cool" Program

(get it... Summer IS Cool!! aka: Summer School).- Padra Smith, MS, OTR/L, SIPT  

We will be keep your children cool all summer long exploring the various

playgrounds, water pads, fields, slides and the POOL...

all while keeping them away from the summer slide (academic regression).

That's right, this year we are EXCITED to announce a partnership with THE BRITISH SWIM SCHOOL to offer formal swimming lessons and therapeutic social play in the pool every week.

 

SIGN UP NOW for any age group below.
