Did You Know?
- All young people experience learning losses when they do not engage in educational activities during the summer. (White, 1906; Heyns, 1978; Entwisle & Alexander 1992; Cooper, 1996; Downey et al, 2004).
- Most students lose about two months of grade level equivalency in mathematical computation skills over the summer months. Some students also lose more than two months in reading achievement (Cooper, 1996).
- Children lose more than academic knowledge over the summer. Most children—particularly children at high risk of obesity—gain weight more rapidly when they are out of school during summer break (Von Hippel et al, 2007).
- Parents consistently cite summer as the most difficult time to ensure that their children have productive things to do (Duffett et al, 2004).
For this reason, Crème has designed NEW programs to help your child stay ahead of the curve.
The programs are designed so parents have the freedom to choose. For example you might want to register your child for two weeks in the Mad Science program, a week in Acting or Dance program, and a week in our Basketball program*.
Although the exact programs offered at each Crème location will vary, some of our NEW summer programs may include:
Alice in Wonderland
Around the World in 80 Days
Arts and Crafts
Drawing and Painting
Film & T.V.
Pirates and Princesses
However, to truly excel in both school and in life, children need a blended learning program which includes academics, fun, and a structured physical program.
In essence, growing minds require balance so Crème's summer programs were developed to focus on coordination and physical activity, like:
Fun & Fitness
Track and Field
We know that FUN needs to be the focus on summer, so these programs are short, focused, and aimed at helping your child to love learning!
Facilities, curriculum, summer programs and special themes will change from time to time

Don’t wait, call now. Here’s what the experts are saying...
“On average, all students lose about a month of progress in math skills each summer...”
—Harris Cooper, Duke University
“While students made similar progress during the school year [some students] had fallen nearly three grade levels behind, and summer was the biggest culprit.”
—Johns Hopkins University
“The proof: students [who follow a summer enrichment program] not only don't fall behind through the summer; they move ahead. More than half of the participants improve by a full letter grade or more in both reading and math.”
—Karen West, as quoted in Time Magazine (Time.com)
“With 90 days of summer, every day a child is not participating in a summer learning program is a loss.” Huffington Post
"This is especially necessary if your child is “on the bubble” (weak in a particular subject, afraid to answer questions in class for fear of being wrong and becoming embarrassed). Summer is a great time to fill in the learning gaps and to begin the next year in a confident manner.”
“Physical activity helps improve academic performance.”
