Summer Program

LSS Summer Programs provide a safe and supervised environment for elementary children all summer long. The programs combine academic enrichment with cultural and recreational activities that children enjoy. We offer summer childcare and education services at six great Sioux Falls locations with affordable rates. Our Here4Youth location specializes in providing care for youth of all abilities.

Our unique and exciting summer program offers school age students fun and enriching experiences. The children keep learning and preparing for the next school year in ways that are hands-on and child-friendly. Our program uses weekly themes and exciting field trips to frame learning. Three weekly pool trips and weekly trips to the library in addition to the 'big adventure' of each week keep children enjoying their summer.

Programs are open 7 a.m. to 6 p.m. Some locations open earlier. Breakfast and an afternoon snack are served. Children can bring their own sack lunch or purchase a hot lunch at some locations. We open right away after Sioux Falls schools dismiss for the summer and continue through the summer until school begins again in the fall.

Each day is exciting and each week offers a new adventure. Some of the fun weekly themes and field trips enjoyed in previous summers are listed below as a sample of the summer fun enjoyed each year. Children are involved in the planning and organization of daily activities. This participation helps develop leadership skills in young children and ensures that programming is both educational and fun.
