Summer Program

Ready, Set, Play! is a behavior-based program specializing in social skills development for children. RSP! is the only independent program that utilizes the I LEARN THROUGH PLAY CURRICULUM™ developed by Shirley Aninias. This is a customized program that focuses on teaching children how to interact appropriately with their peers during open-ended and structured play activities. We effectively provide children with organizational and coping skills to help them improve sustained group engagement in the areas of symbolic, dramatic, cooperative play, and teamwork activities. These are the same skills they will need to use when they have play dates with their peers and in school. All of our activities are centered around a wide variety of summer fun themes with a concentration on academics. In addition, we will be taking various walking trips around the community each week to carry over what they have learned at our summer program.

Each Child Will Receive:

  • Summer Program Memory Book
  • RSP! Backpack
  • RSP! T-shirt
  • And Friendships to Last a Lifetime

How to Apply

Enrollment is on a first come, first-served basis and for current or former RSP! students.

All non-RSP! students must go through a screening process prior to admission. Please note that admission is not guaranteed.
