Lightbridge Academy, a childcare early education center located in Plainsboro, is gearing up for a fun-filled summer camp that makes a perfect first-camp experience!
This all-day summer camp features a new adventure every week, involving children from 3 years old to age 12, for which parents/guardians can choose between two-day, three-day, or five-day camp to your convenience. These themed weeks include Under the Sea, a look at life in the water and its hidden secrets; Once Upon a Time, Where all your fairytales come to life; A Bug’s Life, as we explore the adventures of insects; and Let’s Play Sports, are you ready to be the next MVP? Stars and Stripes, our patriotic-themed camp for the week of July 4.
The Lightbridge Academy summer camp involves a mix of learning and old-fashioned summer fun. Children can experience the outdoor play area, including sprinklers for water play, and an indoor multi-purpose room, so even on rainy days the fun doesn’t stay away. In addition to water play, children do arts and crafts, play/listen to music, munch on yummy snacks, and meet special guest visitors. Their special guest visitors involve very extraordinary people with great talents that range from magicians, puppeteers, magical story tellers, and Mad Scientists!
With interactive whiteboards, iPad technology, and STEM-based activities, children keep their skills sharpened with engaging learning throughout the summer. We might be spinning through tornadoes, sliding through ice and snow, creating thunder with wild weather through science experiments, arts and crafts, and music. Along with every enrollment every child gets a gift package, featuring a water bottle, a T-shirt, and a backpack to carry them along their adventure at Lightbridge.
Camp begins on June 19 and runs Monday through Friday until August 30, except for July 3 and 4. Keep in mind space is limited and camp availability will fill up fast, so it’s never too early to start enrolling. Camp runs from 7 a.m. to 6:30 p.m., and Lightbridge Academy offers one price for all-day extended care. Children can spend all day with us, and parents can breathe easy knowing they can keep an eye on their child and our daily fun through our ParentView live-streaming video program that lets parents check in during the exact moment of real life time.
Children under Lightbridge’s care are in a secure environment with experienced CPR and First-Aid certified staff. The center includes a high level of security, which begins at the front door with a biometric finger scanning system and includes video monitoring as well as other features.
Lightbridge Academy provides a friendly and stimulating year-round place for your child. In addition, we have a 5,500-square-foot outdoor playground separated by age group so children can have outdoor fun while taking safety precautions. Our building also accommodates up to 165 children, with full-time programs for children ages six weeks through pre-kindergarten, in addition to our afternoon program for ages up to 12.
For children in full-day school, from first grade through age 12, Lightbridge Academy offers similar age-appropriate afterschool opportunities. Children from the Plainsboro School District (from Wyckoff and Town Center) are transported by the district to Lightbridge Academy at the end of the school day where care is available until 6:30 p.m. Also included are days when the district schools are closed, children enrolled in Lightbridge can spend the whole day, with no extra charge from parents.
