As seasons change, so does our curriculum. When summer comes, we take full advantage of the weather moving much of our program outdoors. We also add many activities such as swim instruction, cooperative games, team sports and field trips. It is our belief that all education does not take place from behind a desk or in a classroom, which brings us to our renowned Summer Program. Throughout its’ history Maplewood has successfully designed an age appropriate, imaginative program. Our goal is to develop your child’s social and educational abilities in a fun environment where your child experiences success at every turn. Achieving success is always fun and it leaves a child wanting more, a motivated child has no boundaries…
Our “skills oriented” program always takes into account the child’s age, strength and exposure to each activity. Batting tees in baseball, lowered basketball backboards, shortened ball fields and specifically designed equipment ensure success! Additionally, age appropriate field trips to local parks and museums enhance a child’s sensibilities of the natural world in which they live. In no way do we support or teach the negative aspects of competition. We encourage each child to do his or her “personal best” in a supportive environment. Team work, fair play and cooperation are the cornerstones of Maplewood’s physical education program.

The Maplewood Swim program is an important element of our summer curriculum. Teaching and improving swimming skills is a primary concern for our parents and gets our top priority! There are obvious carry over values in regard to swimming due to its lifelong appeal and personal safety.
Our Senior and Aqua Tot pools are specifically geared toward the age appropriate skills of both young and older children. Once a child is comfortable in the water, we have a complete Maplewood Aquatics Program which is the perfect primer to the American Red Cross Program. This insures that each child will be placed in a group that meets his or her specific abilities to start, and then advance up through the program at their own pace. Each child will swim daily. Half the time is devoted to instructional swim, with the remainder being “free swim” just for the fun of it! At Maplewood, we have a Giant Water Slide that always makes a splash! We also have a number of pool toys such as hundreds of rubber ducks, beach balls, dive rings that make swimming at Maplewood more than getting wet.
At the pools, it’s always safety first! All of our lifeguards are fully certified by the American Red Cross as well as Nassau County. Our program is led by our own American Red Cross Certified Aquatics Director who manages our Water Safety Instructors and aquatics staff.
