Extended Day and Aftercare

Extended Day and Aftercare are available for children 2-6 years of age.  Both groups are led by Montessori trained teachers, and the children enjoy fun activities in the Montessori environment.

EXTENDED DAY 11:45-3:30:

2-3 Year Olds: The Toddlers and 3 year olds from the Primary classrooms join together in the Pre-Primary classroom for lunch and nap.  After nap, they enjoy playing and working with materials until dismissal at 3:30.  

4 Year Olds: We have two groups of 4 year olds.  The students join together at 11:45 in their Extended Day room for lunch and then a rest period.  The group of older 4 year olds does not nap, but enjoys a quiet period with soft music, or the teacher reading a story.  The younger group of 4 year olds has a napping period.  After rest, they enjoy special projects, work with Montessori materials, and play on the playground, until dismissal at 3:30.

AFTERCARE 3:30-5:30:

2-3 Year Olds: The 2 and 3 year olds who do not go home at 3:30 dismissal stay together in the Pre-Primary class for the rest of the day.  They will have snack, and play either outside or in the multi-purpose room, and have group activities.  The Toddler teacher transitions the Extended Day group into the Aftercare period.

4-6 Year Olds: The 4 year olds who do not go home at 3:30 dismissal are joined by the 5 and 6 year olds from the Primary classes who are enrolled in Aftercare.  The group will have snack, group activities and crafts, and play either outside or in the multi-purpose room.  The same lead teacher stays with the 4-6 year olds from 12:30-5:30.
