Our Enrichment and Extended Day Enrichment program is the perfect compliment to the Morning Montessori Session and Kindergarten.
Children may stay from 12-2pm, 12-3pm, 12-4pm (3-4pm for Kdg), 12-5pm (3-5pm for Kdg), or 12-6pm (3-6pm for Kdg), from one to five days per week.
This is a very flexible program as families may sign up a couple of days here and there (as space permits), a month at a time, or for the whole acadmic year (priority is given to 5 day per week, full day children). Families may also change their schedule month to month as needed (and as space permits).
Our Enrichment program offers children a balance of group time, individual free-play, quiet time, one on one time with a teacher, and outdoor play. The Faculty prepares a curriculum responsive to the children’s thoughts, feelings and interests. Typical activities and projects include working with a variety of different art mediums, science experiments, cooking, group story/poem time, and one on one reading time with a teacher or friend. After a morning of individual work, the Enrichment program offers a more relaxed environment where children have the opportunity to engage in small and large group activities. This offers children a time to develop and strengthen their social/emotional skills. Children learn how to use their words, negotiate conflicts and problem solve.
