STEAMy Summertime where learning brings a whole new meaning to Fun at Stratford School — including coding for girls!

In the summer, we open our doors beyond Stratford students and offer enrollment for children throughout the area

Summer is STEAMy at Stratford School, Pleasanton campus. There’s still time to turn up the heat and enroll children in fun, enriching, experiential learning programs where they’ll make new friends while staying sharp and ready to start the school year with confidence. STEAM-based (science, technology, engineering, art, math) activities happening at Stratford’s Pleasanton location offer a flexible and fun way to spend the summer.

Stratford School Pleasanton campus is located at 4576 Willow Road in Pleasanton, just off I-680 and Stoneridge Drive. Registration is open. Programs are ongoing and students may join at any time. “In the summer, we open our doors beyond Stratford students and offer enrollment for children throughout the area,” says Licia Morrow, Tutoring and Enrichment Program Director of the Stratford School Pleasanton campus. “Studies show that summer learning loss in reading and computational math skills is more likely to happen over summer. Our Summer@Stratford programs provide a fun and creative way to keep children active and engaged throughout the summer, reducing the chances of falling behind academically during an extended academic break.”

Children are welcome to sign up regardless of enrollment at Stratford. Summer@Stratford offers two options for summer enrichment: Camp Socrates and STEAM camp; an innovative a la carte opportunity to learn and grow based on a child’s specific interests and curiosities.

Stratford’s original, enriched Camp Socrates summer day camps (four and seven week programs) offers campers in preschool through fifth grade the opportunity to learn, explore and engage in camp-style activities and enriched academics throughout the summer. The day begins with team building through collaborative camp play. Morning sessions engage the mind with creative and interactive reading, math, and writing activities that promote critical thinking and strengthen fundamental computational skills, followed by invigorating afternoon STEAM sessions and outdoor adventures.

Stratford’s innovative STEAM program at the Pleasanton campus gives 1st through 5th grade campers an opportunity to explore, as they discover new areas of interest and develop lifelong skills. This program offers flexible enrollment without having to commit to a full summer course. Campers will enjoy a wide-variety of STEAM and enrichment activities tailored for their summer adventure. One week a student could be designing and building a roller coaster. The next week they could be commanding a space ship, writing code, or perfecting their programming skills.
