High Scope and the
NYS Pre-K Standards
Our curriculum, based on New York State standards and the High Scope philosophy, forms the basis of the child-centered learning program at Greentrees.
Our Swim Program
Whether your child has mastered swimming or is a fearful beginner, we will teach your child how to enjoy the water safely in our heated pool. Small groups of age-equivalent children swim and play together with a C.P.R. and First Aid certified lifeguard and Red Cross Water Safety Instructor. All Greentrees counselors are fully trained in pool supervision and water safety.
Private Swim Lessons
During the summer season we are pleased to offer private one-on-one swimming lessons (ages 2-6) after camp hours with our Red Cross Water Safety Instructor. These 20-30 minute lessons help campers develop the feeling of safety and confidence and a lifelong love of the water while emphasizing skills that will keep them challenged and motivated.
Ultimately, we strive to find the "sweet-spot" between kindergarten preparedness, and an approach to learning that values how children learn best... through hands-on, discovery-based experiences. is a lifelong love of learning.
