What summer will look like…

Preschoolers and incoming Kindergartners will utilize our playground, and have daily water activities. 

1st grade and up will utilize our playground, visit local playgrounds, and have weekly scheduled field trips. We will also have water play activities daily on site to cool down in the afternoons!

Lunch will be your responsibility to pack daily, nothing that requires heating up please. Breakfast and an afternoon snack will be provided for all students. Please indicate allergies or medication needed on your emergency form. 


Summer reading will be encouraged and part of our day as we are partnering with the Library to help students retain knowledge and skills learned in the previous school year avoiding the summer slide. This is only 15 minutes a day. When students fill their summer reading chart, they’ll be rewarded!


Summer at Joyful Noise will have weekly themes where students will do themed
centered activities, and project work surrounding the themes.

For Example: Fun in the sun- Students will do sun activities, learn about the sun and
how it affects us both good and bad (sunburns, sunscreen safety, Vitamin D, etc).

Weekly Themes:
Coming soon…

Joyful Noise Summer Camp Field Trips:

We will be doing weekly field trips for incoming 1st graders and up only. Preschoolers and incoming kindergartners will stay on site. Field trips will be 2-3 times a week and we would ask parents to cover the cost. We plan to keep the cost to $10-$15 dollars each at most, if anything at all, as some trips will be free. Fees will be added the week prior to weekly invoices. We sent invoices out on Mondays, and they are due the Wednesday before care is given.


Coming April/May 2024

-Bi-weekly trips to the library will be done to help students sign up for the summer reading program where they can choose books that can  stay at Joyful Noise for reading, and swapped out throughout the summer. If you want to allow your child to check out their own books to bring home, please provide their library card.
