The Importance of Summer Learning

3:51 AM


Summer vacation is near and students are all very excited to hit the beach or go out of town. After spending ten months inside the classroom, finishing projects, doing homework at night and weekends, and studying for examinations, students definitely look forward to taking a break during the summer time for play and fun with their friends. 

For teachers, the break means an uphill battle with the “summer slide”. Studies show that students could lose up to 2 months of literacy and math skills throughout the summer season, especially that the preschool and grade school years are the crucial stage to develop foundational skills needed in the long run. To solve this problem, enrolling kids in a Summer Program that runs for an hour or two per day answers the learning gap.

Galileo Enrichment Learning Program, Inc. acknowledges the different learning pace and style of each child, taking into account one’s need for an encouraging and positive learning environment. The organization aims to improve students’ academic aptitude by cultivating mastery of Math and English skills in a fun and meaningful way, thereby making them lifelong learners.

This summer, Galileo will be offering programs that will help prevent summer learning loss in an exciting ways. These innovative programs tap into the interests of the students while at the same time teach them with essential and practical learning skills.


The Galileo Summer Learning Camp (SLC) is a summer program that taps into a child’s interests while exposing him to a wide range of activities, preparing him for school, and further enhancing their social skills. This year, the Galileo Summer Learning Camp brings the fun and learning to the streets through its theme: Celebrating Filipino Games and Culture.

These games will be integrated with other activities unique to the Galileo Summer Learning Camp such as art activities, creative storytelling, interactive songs, and cooperative playing. The SLC focuses on bodily-kinesthetic learning enriched with cognitive- related learning because the toddlers’ age, (1.5- 3 y.o) is the time when they need to develop motor skills, along with their thinking and perception skills. In addition, some learning concepts such as shapes, colors and few letter recognition will be introduced.

Based on case study, each project task will eventually lead the students of all ages into the ability to acquire new knowledge. Being well-equipped with the continuous knowledge they had learnt, students will have better capability to adapt in the ever-growing technology environment.
