Cottage is pleased to offer another year of our popular Summer Camp. Filled with water-play and other fun summer activities, the curriculum mirrors closely that of the regular school year. Summer Camp does not require parents to teach in the classroom. (You are, of course, welcome to stay and play any day!) Summer Camp tuition also includes a daily snack fee. Cottage staff will purchase and prepare a healthy, vegetarian snack every day. A snack calendar will be emailed to you prior to the start of Summer Camp. You can download the Summer Camp contract below.

Immunizations and CA SB-277

There has been an important change to the enrollment process at Cottage. As part of the registration process, we will need to receive a copy of your child's immunization record.  As most of you probably know, there have been recent changes to the law regarding vaccinations and school enrollment.  Based on this new law and state licensing regulations, we must receive all updated and appropriate records of immunization in order to enroll your child. The California legislature and Governor Brown signed SB-277 into law last year.  This law removes the personal belief vaccine exemption for children attending childcare centers and public or private schools. For more information, please see CA SB-277.
