Summer Learning Program

Enrich Your Child's Summer!



What experiences will you share with your child this summer?



The Sun Scholars Summer Program is a fun, simple educational program designed specifically for stay-at-home parents and caregivers to use with their children over the summer months.  Use the Sun Scholars Summer Program to enrich your child's summer, for summer school programs, daycare activities, childcare co-ops, and more. Though this program was created to be used over the summer months, you will find that many of these activities can be done throughout the year.  This would also be a great compliment to any home school program!

This program has been created with primary school children in mind.  You will find that the activities can be easily altered to fit the ages and capabilities of the children in your care.  The activity cards offer suggestions on how to modify or enrich each activity to fit the child's skill level.  Over-all, the program is best suited for children ages 4-9.


The goal of this program is to keep your child's mind active through the summer, when skills learned in the previous school year are often lost.  Help your children retain the what was learned over the summer, and give them a head start on the next school year ahead.  Make a commitment to enrich your child's summer experience through fun summer learning activities!  Try the Sample Kit for FREE to see just how simple it is.

About the Sun Scholars Summer Program

My Guidelines
I had some very specific requirements in mind when creating this program.  Below are the guidelines that I used in developing this program.
  • Allow users to fit into their own schedules/routines
  • Challenge the child, but make it fun!
  • Quick and easy activities
  • Minimal set-up and mess
  • Ease of use with various ages
  • Activities that don't require 100% parent participation
  • Ties into school curricular requirements
  • Keeps kids using skills learned in the school year
  • Allows the child to use their gifts and talents
  • Supply list of common items around the home
  • Inexpensive
  • Keeps the child interested with a variety of activities
  • A variety of interactive, hands-on activities


How It Works
The Sun Scholar Summer Program consists of 12 weekly kits, each with a unique theme.  Each week's kit has twenty fun and educational activities for you to share with your child, a list of any special materials that might be required, and the printables needed for the activities that week.


The activities are outlined on a half-page card.  They are simple, easy to implement, inexpensive, and things you can easily incorporate into your daily routine.  Most activities use items found commonly in and around your home.  And we haven't forgotten about the learning opportunities in your weekly outings!  Take your learning to the local park, your own back yard, or the grocery store!






Your Role in the Program

You decide your level of commitment.  Perhaps you want to spend 4 hours each week day teaching your children.  Perhaps you find it difficult to find 15 minutes to dedicate to one-on-one learning experiences.  You will find that many of these activities are designed to be easy to implement, regardless of the time you have to participate.  Find a schedule or a routine that works for your family, and use as many of the weekly activities that you can manage to fit in.





Subjects Included
Sun Scholars Summer Program was created to cover the basic subject areas, with greater emphasis placed on reading, writing, and mathematics.  Many activities will cover multiple subject areas.  Subjects include: Reading, Writing, Math, Art, Social Studies, Science, Health (Physical Education and Nutrition), and Life Skills.

  1. We tried Sun Scholars about 3 years ago when 2 of my kids were 2 and 4 years of age. It was a lot of fun for the kids and very easy to plan out the activities. I was just thinking the other day about pulling it out again for the summer so we can do the program again. I now have 4 kids ages 7,5,3 and 1. I have a feeling the older kids will really enjoy the different activities as they won't remember them from before and my oldest will even be able to help out a little with it-bonus for me :). Thanks Rachel Harwood for a great program!
