Nap Program (ages 3 – 4)
All three and four-year-old children who are enrolled in the 9am–3pm program will participate in the school nap program. A nap is not provided for children in the half day (9am–12pm or 9am–1pm) classes.
Nap rooms are staffed by at least two adults. Nap is mandatory for those children who are not yet old enough to join the extended day portion of the Montessori class, which traditionally occurs around age five. A quiet rest time begins at around 1:15, stories are read and music is played. After a period of rest, children may engage in quiet activities such as table games, reading books, art projects, and puzzles.
Before and After School Care (ages 3 – 12)
Our before and after school programs provide a fun and engaging experience for children who stay for a longer day at school. In before and after care, your child will enjoy supervised arts and crafts, indoor and outdoor games and play, snacks and stories. The program operates in the morning from 7:15 a.m. until the start of the Montessori school day at 8:45am, and in the afternoon from 3:00 p.m. until 6:00 p.m.
Our extended care programs follow the guiding principles of Montessori education, including:
- Beautifully prepared child-sized environments where children learn and play in many different ways, individually and in pairs and groups, inside and outside, at tables and on the floor.
- Bright and attractive materials provide for sensory and intellectual experiences.
- Children are free to choose activities that interest them and are supported in regulating their own social interactions with confidence and grace.
