Can you believe it’s time to think about Summer?

Week 1 of Summer at Grymes July 10-14th is FULL!
Limited space is still available for the weeks of July 17th – 21st and 24th – 28th!

We’re excited to offer an all-new Summer at Grymes Program with three weeks of flexible morning, afternoon or full-day summer care for children from 3 – 10 years of age to keep your children engaged, learning and having FUN during the month of July! Kimber Keating, Lead Teacher in our mixed-age Junior Kindergarten classroom and mom of three Grizzlies, will oversee the program with the help of Teaching Intern and Grymes Alumna Emily Aylor ’13.

Our flexible scheduling can accommodate your summer work and/or vacation schedule; at just $17 for a half-day or $34 for a full-day, you can choose to come and go with the demands of your summer schedule as long as you make your reservation in advance!
