Sunny Days is Nightingale’s premier summer enrichment program for children entering Kindergarten through fifth grade. Now in its 24th year, the program offers a wide array of dynamic, age-appropriate activities organized and supervised by its highly experienced staff.

For incoming Kindergarten girls, Sunny Days provides the perfect opportunity to make new friends and develop relationships with both teachers and older students alike. Families whose children have participated in Sunny Days before the Kindergarten year credit the program with significantly easing the transition to Kindergarten. By the time September comes, the schoolhouse already feels like home.
