What People Are Saying About Fair Acres!

Curious to hear what current and former families are sharing about their Fair Acres experiences? Here are a few testimonials that we’ve collected recently…

“It was the best experience for both of my daughters! They learned how to be respectful to others, made lifelong friends and learned to read and write! They miss everyone there. Fair Acres absolutely exceeded my expectations. The experience was amazing, like a big family, I am so happy my girls went there!” ~Shelley Cenzalli

“We originally heard about Fair Acres through word of mouth and through several friends who have had their children attend Fair Acres. Our experience has been amazing. We’ve been an active Fair Acres family for many years now. My son started in the Pre-K for 1.5 years, then attended Kindergarten. We also did the summer camp program for many years for both my son and daughter. My daughter stared last year in the 3’s building and is now in the 5-day Pre-K class. Quintin learned how to ride his bike without training wheels, while in the 5-day Pre-K, thanks to Miss Tracey! Quintin also learned how to swim thanks to the amazing summer camp staff and the beautiful pond. When the pandemic started, Quintin was in Kindergarten with Miss Linda. Miss Linda, Miss Shannon, Jodi and Curt went above and beyond to make sure the children could still have a somewhat normal learning experience. That Kindergarten class was so memorable, I don’t think we will ever forget it. Quintin went into first grade so far ahead of the other kids, because of all the hard work and dedication we received from all of the Fair Acres staff.” ~Brittany Burt

“I had heard wonderful things about the teachers and the experiences my friends’ kids had. My oldest, Cole, had a wonderful teacher, Miss Judy, last year who exceeded my expectations. She was caring, nurturing, and warm to my child and got him interested in learning. We love all the outside time the children get, as well…it is a beautiful campus, and they utilize it very well! I love that my youngest, Beckett, has Miss Jen and Miss Erika. They are fabulous with him! They have such a fun curriculum and are so caring and kind.” ~Erin Anderson

“We love Fair Acres! I can’t say it enough. The three-year-old program was the first time our son attended a school away from us. Not only was he learning amazing things, he was also cared for greatly by the teachers and staff. He had some anxiety issues that the teachers and staff worked with us in a variety of ways to overcome his fears. This year he attends the 5-day pre-K program now and has blossomed! He comes home teaching us all kinds of new things- about other cultures, science, nature, art, etc. He has really taken ownership of his learning. It is especially great to have him learning in an environment where the teachers value outdoor play and learning. He goes outside every day, even if there is snow on the ground. The teachers go out of their way to teach about the environment we live in so that the children get an appreciation for nature and being outside. One of the first days of pickup this year in pre-K the students were outside having a dance party on the field. The kids were having such a great time! And really, that is what every day is like! There is learning in every activity they do, but the kids don’t know it- they think they are playing. What I love the most though, is he is learning to be a good friend, citizen and person as well. The social skills development is a huge piece that we cannot teach alone as parents. Fair Acres has been incredible with teaching good values, interpersonal skills and kindness. He refers to all his classmates as his friends, not as kids in his class. All this wouldn’t be possible without the guidance and support of the owners, Curt and Jodi. They are always welcoming and open. My son loves going in to say good morning to Miss Jodi and gives her a hug every time. These are the relationships I want my son to develop with his classmates and teachers/administrators. He LOVES going to school. I really can’t say enough wonderful things!” ~Beth Anderson

April Vacation Camp Highlights

This year’s April Vacation Camp was an action-packed week, full of fun and friendships, featuring plenty of outdoor games, imaginative play, crafts and nature-based activities!

Our vacation campers made use of the entire campus, and enjoyed engaging with each other in this year’s themes, which included “Bubble Fun,” “Earth Day,” “Ice Cream Social” and “Baseball Day”…

Fair Acres 2023 Learn-to-Skate Program

Fair Acres was so happy to be able to offer our Learn-to-Skate program again this year!

This program took place on Tuesdays throughout the month of March at the Hyannis Youth and Community Center. The Pre-K and Kindergarten students traveled by bus to the rink (the bus ride was a huge highlight for the children!), and after lacing up, took to the ice to embark on the adventure of developing their ice skating skills together.

After the first couple of weeks, all of the children were off skating independently, no longer needing to reply on crates for balance. We were amazed by their progress, as they proudly demonstrated their skating abilities!

Our Learn-to-Skate program provides for a whole lot of fun, but also supports our goal of encouraging the development of very important skills, as well as physical activity. Preparing to ice skate requires many fine motor skills, including zipping jackets, tying skates and putting on gloves, and skating improves posture, balance, flexibility and coordination, while enhancing muscle strength and endurance.

Fair Acres is very proud of the long list of alumni, who have gone on to become hockey players and figure skaters, and we are very grateful to our staff, parents, and grandparents, who shared their time and talents with us, to help make this program a huge success!

What people are saying about Kindergarten at Fair Acres:

“We feel that our son’s academic and social growth at Fair Acres since Preschool and now ending his tenure here in Kindergarten has improved exponentially! He went from being a socially shy and academically apprehensive child to a confident, happy and academically flourishing child.”

“My daughter has improved immensely so far. She is reading on her own, speaking Spanish, counting, knows the months in order and more. As well as academically, she has also grown emotionally which is just as important. I don’t have to fight for her to go to school. She wants to go on the weekends. This shows me she is really enjoying it as well.”

2023 Summer Camp Registration is Now Open!

Welcome to Fair Acres Summer Day Camp!

We have been very busy this winter preparing for a wonderful and fun-filled summer camp program for the summer of 2023. Our goal is to create a positive experience that will last a lifetime for our campers and ensure a summer of “good ol’ camp fun”. Fair Acres Summer Camp will be offered to children ages 4 – 12 and will run for (4) two-week sessions beginning July 3rd. The camp program begins at 8:30 a.m. and ends at 3:30 p.m.

The program for the summer months has been designed to utilize the eight-plus acres that encompass Fair Acres. The country setting offers large green lawn areas, fully equipped playgrounds, two pickleball courts, a basketball court, a putting green, a ball field, and plenty of woods for exploring nature. We are excited to bring our popular GaGa pit back to summer camp this year. Our campers will enjoy teaming up with their fellow campers for some friendly competition during this kinder gentler version of dodgeball. Gross motor skills along with sportsmanship will be a key part of this fun activity.

The area features spring-fed Shubael’s Pond. Its sandy bottom and gradual depth are the perfect location for swimming and fun-filled water activities. Emphasis will be on physical development through gross motor skills, arts & crafts, swimming instruction, nature, music, and plenty of camp fun. Fair Acres classroom buildings are spacious facilities that are utilized on rainy days and for special activities.

Fair Acres Summer Camp is staffed with hand-selected, qualified persons from all over New England. Our staff is rigorously trained and thoroughly understands the individual needs of each camper. Most of all, they are enthusiastic, energetic, and excited to work with your child to develop their full potential.

Come join us this summer at Fair Acres for all the fun a child can handle! We are looking forward to sharing a great experience with you and your family.

See you this Summer!
