Join the Summer Fun – Enroll in GCCNS Summer Camp!
For any child who has been or will be enrolled in GCCNS: come and have fun with friends at GCCNS Summer Camp where the playground becomes our classroom. Children will explore the theme of nature in a relaxed atmosphere filled with discovery and outdoor play. GCCNS Summer Camps bridge the gap between the end of the GCCNS school year and the beginning of Park District camps. Camp is two weeks long.
Information regarding Summer Camp 2021 will be available Spring 2021!
Music and Movement classes are open to the public. You do not need to be enrolled at GCCNS to participate in the class.
Glenview Community Church offers Music and Movement classes for young children on Tuesday and Wednesday mornings. These classes, taught by Debbie Berg, are open to the community and all are welcome to join in this morning of musical fun for children ages 9 months to 4 years. Classes are offered during the fall, winter and spring sessions; as well as a modified schedule during the summer.
Come with your child as we will be singing, dancing and playing a variety of rhythm instruments allowing them to develop language, cognitive skills, and social skills in a friendly child environment. Sign language will also be incorporated into the class.
