Summer Fun in the Branch!


The word ‘summer’ triggers a sense of freedom in children, a chance to play and discover friendships in a relaxed and fun atmosphere. Westwood Summer Camps offer many exciting and stimulating choices that encourage children to learn and explore. We create an environment that allows them to feel safe enough to be themselves and to follow their own paths of creativity and curiosity. Much like our academic programs, Westwood Summer Camps reflect our commitment to a student-centered educational approach that engages and challenges students, enabling them to develop socially, emotionally and intellectually.

Student Policy

Westwood reserves the right to dismiss any student whose conduct is unsatisfactory or who fails to follow Westwood rules and regulations. No refund will be made to any student who withdraws or is dismissed from a week of camp after the camp has begun.

My kid’s in preschool. I love the school, teachers and faculties, and the teaching skills. When I drop my kids off in school, I feel so comfortable that my kids are in a safe place with nice caring teachers. It’s an awesome school.
