We are a parent cooperative preschool for children ages 22 months to 5 years.

Registration required

  • Specific dates

Please contact us to submit which week(s) you would like to sign up for, along with your child's name and birthday. After submitting your intention for a spot, please be on the lookout for a follow-up email sometime in the following week with directions for submitting a 50% deposit to fully secure your space. You may be asked to sign up for Tads, our payment system.

The remainder of the balance will be due by June 3rd (registration may be extended if spots still remain).

Please also be on the lookout for an email in the coming weeks with some paperwork to fill out so that we may formally enroll your child into our program for the summer. This will include emergency contact information, medical history, etc.



Our summer program costs $400 per week, or $1500 if signing up for all four weeks ($100 discount). This rate is also slightly discounted from the typical summer rate for families joining from outside of Newtowne.

  • Financial Aid and/or Scholarship Available

Scholarships are available through an annual application process with the acceptance of enrollment in the Spring.

Additional information

At Newtowne, experienced teachers work closely with families to create a nurturing, play-based learning environment that fosters joy and meaning for young children. Our rich, developmentally appropriate play-based curriculum is inspired by the progressive educational tradition of Reggio Emilia.

This summer, we're excited to offer a month of outdoor enrichment, splash pools, engaging sensory play, open-ended art experiences, popsicle Fridays, and more! Each week the curriculum will be focused around a central theme:

  • Color and Motion (July 5th-8th)
  • Ocean Exploration (July 11th-15th)
  • Space and Constellations (July 18th-22nd)
  • Magic and Potions (July 25th-29th)
