Summer Programs
Santa Margarita Children’s Center is open year round.  Our summer months take on the flavor of a “summer camp”.  We love to be outside tending our vegetable gardens, running and playing in the sprinklers, wading in the pool, building volcanoes and sand castles with wet sand, soaking up the sunshine and strengthening our large muscles.  The older children hike down to the Terra Linda Pool two days a week to splash and play, learn swimming skills, and how to be safe in water.  Fridays become our summer adventure- excursion days.  We travel with the help of our families, to fun and educational locations throughout the Bay Area to places like the Oakland Zoo, Discovery Museum, McNears’s Beach, and more.  By offering these wonderful fieldtrips, children develop responsibility and self-help skills, develop knowledge and confidence, mature, and deepen friendships while creating enduring childhood memories.
