Nature every day offers wonderful gifts, flowers, fruits and plants with exquisite aromas and various properties that can contribute to our well-being.

Early Years Program (2-6 years old)
The Nido EYS Summer Camp is planned for children ages 2 through 6. Participants are going to enjoy the school holiday in a rich/fun learning environment which will allow them to acquire new skills and make more friends.

Based on the number of children enrolled in the program, we will have eight to ten groups of approximately twenty kids. Each group will be balanced according to gender and age. Two teachers will be in charge of each group and each will have a classroom of their own. Children ages 2 to 3 will be placed in a special group with more professionals in charge and with a slightly different routine to fit their developmental and personal needs.
The EYS Summer Camp day starts at 9 a.m. and finishes at 1 p.m. The groups will have a daily launching activity in their rooms that will set the tone for the day and the week. They will be learning songs, games, and vocabulary related to the weekly theme through fun activities that will let them know what to expect during the camp journey.
