NEW ROCHELLE, N.Y. -- The College of New Rochelle Graduate School provides summer programs at Ward Elementary School in New Rochelle for children ages 3-8.

The program runs from Monday, July 7, through Friday Aug. 1, Monday to Friday from 9 a.m.-1 p.m.

The objective of the programs is to create an environment where children can develop their intellectual and social skills while using these new skills in fun and interesting activities.

Mentor teachers and CNR graduate students work as a team to ensure that the summer program curriculum they develop is in accordance with Common Core requirements.

Children ages 3-5 in the program will participate in group activities involving literacy and math, creative arts, dramatic play, music and movement, block building and outdoor play. 

Children ages 6-8 will engage in group activities, including social studies, science, nature, outdoor play, creative arts, music and movement, and technology. Children will also participate in small-group and individualized periods of instruction each day.

“I know that the education department has put great effort into making this program effective and fun,” said Angela Grille, adjunct education professor and program coordinator at The College of New Rochelle and principal of Midland Elementary School in Rye. “I really look forward to seeing the positive impact for both the graduate students and the children.”
