Welcome to the 2023 Preschool Summer Program 

Please note that registration opens on Monday, March 20th at 9am

  • The DCH Preschool Summer Program is a continuation of our school year program with an emphasis placed on outside play experiences. Water play, gross motor activities, and walks on our beautiful riverside grounds occur daily, and children have the chance to interact with their peers in developmentally appropriate classroom settings.
  • The Preschool Summer Program serves children ages 15 months to 4 years (entering Pre-Kindergarten in the fall)
  • Children do not need to attend the DCH Preschool during the regular school year in order to participate in the summer program.
  • The summer program runs for 8 weeks from June 26th to August 14th. The summer program is broken into four 2-week sessions. There is a minimum requirement of 1 full session.
  • Children must attend five days per week, full or half-day options are available. Full day hours are 7:30am - 4:30pm and half day 7:30am - 12:30pm.
  • Children must be registered for a consistent schedule throughout all weeks for which they are registered. 
  • Swim lessons are no longer offered during the school day. ** email our Program DIrector, Kaitlin McCarthy at for information. 
  • Financial aid is available for tuition and registration fees. Please complete and return the Financial Aid form (CLICK HERE). Vouchers also accepted.
  • Registrations are processed in the order in which they are received prioritizing currently enrolled families. A $25 non-refundable registration fee is due at the time of application. Once we determine that we have a space for your child, a non-refundable deposit equal to 1 week's tuition (based upon the schedule you are registering for) is necessary to hold your spot. The tuition deposit will be applied to the child's last week of summer tuition and will be forfeited in the event of cancellation or early withdrawal at any time, including prior to May 15th.  Families are responsible for tuition for ALL weeks registered unless written notice is given prior to May 15th. Confirmation of enrollment status will be emailed by the end of April.
  • If you would like to request changes to your registration (adds, drops, switching weeks) please email your request via the Summer Change Form ( on Website) to our Preschool Director, Jayma Thompson, at
