Sunset Hills Montessori School

Reston Pre-School and Private Elementary 20th Anniversary. Sunset Hills Montessori School is nestled in the woods of Reston, on the edges of Lake Audubon and Lake Thoreau. We provide a peaceful school setting for children ages 18 months to 3rd grade.

Summers at SHMS provide our campers with a safe, nurturing environment that ties the Montessori philosophy in with traditional summer camp fun! Each summer your child has nine weekly adventures to choose from.

Popular themes include:

On Land and Sea- (June 17th-June 28th) - Summer is often a time of travel, and campers will explore the amazing earth with a focus on the diversity that is found on land and in our oceans. Through nature walks, water play, and all the enriching activities in the classroom, campers will be intrepid travelers! From an individual travel bag to take home for their own family vacation, to creating their own underwater biome, all campers will love the extensive water play activities and make every day of summer full of fun with friends

The World of Science- (July 22nd-August 2nd)- This camp is filled with amazing demonstrations and hands-on science that will thrill every young scientist! Small group lessons will allow each camper to measure, pour and mix as they learn about the diversity of this field. Whether it is biology, botany or chemistry, campers will explore the world of science and feel the excitement of discovery! A practical life extension of science for children is cooking and each camper will also have the opportunity to learn some fun and delicious hands-on recipes—some that even can be described as weird science!

We hope that you will join us on these adventures!
