PEGASUS SUMMER PROGRAM 

Soaring Since 1994

Since its inception in 1994, the Pegasus Summer Program has been enriching children’s summer days. kidsonrockLike the wings giving the mythological horse flight, Pegasus supports children during a six-week summer experience.  Children are empowered by making choices for themselves, and Pegasus offers a wide range of activity selections tailored for children with varying interests.  Excellent staff: child ratios mean that all children are supported, nurtured, and engaged at Pegasus each day.  At the core of the Pegasus philosophy when it was founded in 1994 was a belief that all children would thrive and gain confidence  when given the right supports.  That philosophy holds true today – 23 years after the program was founded.

PRESCHOOL PROGRAM

Be a friend. Make a friend. Blow bubbles. Catch a butterfly. Cover your knees with orange body paint, your elbows with pink. Dance to the music. Sprint through the sprinklers. Sit on a blanket in the shade with your teacher.

The preschooler’s day is action-packed with indoor and outdoor fun, stories, special events, and enrichment activities such as Music, Dance, Arts & Crafts, Construction Zone, and more. Children enjoy on-site special events, performers, and a special partnership with the Wayland Public Library centered on an enriching activity. The professional staff is committed to making sure each child has a good day…every day.
