    Summer programs for 3 year old

    I am having our second child right at the time my very active son breaks for summer holidays from preschool July & August. I am looking to give him something fun to do, cooking, sports, etc a couple of mornings a week, (not a school based 5 days a week), with Nana or our helper so his 2 months focus is not just on the new baby and I can recover from a C section. YWCA times are terrible, classes start at 4.30pm, he is normally in the bath by 5.30 - 5.45 , so AM's are essential. Any pointers would be greatly appreciated.:woman

    Kid's Gallery has a pretty comprehensive program. ESF has sports camp 9am~12 for 6 weeks until August 10 (you can register per week). Tutor Time also has a fun summer program (weekly themes include cool cooking and amazing trek), and they are very flexible about how many days you go a week.

    ESF Sports Camp

    ESF offers a sports camp for children as young as 3. I think at your son's age, it would mornings only. They also have individual sport camps but I don't remember off-hand whether your son would be old enough. Early registration has passed, but they are still taking regular registrations.

    Sorry, I didn't see syuan's message about the sports camp until after I had posted.

    We won't be in here for most of the summer, but what we are doing is hiring a private swim instructor for my son and splitting the cost with a friend (during the week that we will be here). Private lessons can have up to 2 students. It works out to about as much as a normal lesson, but accommodates your schedule. You might look into this if your son likes to be in the water. Also through ESF; their Tadpoles class is great.

    Has anyone done the summer camps at ESF? Do the 3-4 year olds go unaccompanied? Can they change from their swim wear to sports wear on their own? It's also 3 hrs, I don't think I could sit for that long if I were to accompany my child.

    My son went on one of those ESF sports camp at SIS last year. He just turned 4 then, yeah, he could managed pretty much on his own, I am sure there were staff to help them fixed their clothes if need be (just a guess). He had a really good time and may be joining a full day one on a specific sport this time round. Not a problem at all.
