We accept children for five, four or three days a week.
Consistency is a very important part of the program, so we recommend the four or five days a week option. A Montessori morning is unique in that it allows the child to create his/her day, guided by the teacher and other children. The child’s experience builds upon a previous day’s experience. The child proceeds from one activity to the next, learning how to learn by engaging in and repeating work that is interesting to him/her. Socialization in this context is fun and useful – not only is the child constructing oneself by the building up of activity, the classroom of children are building up a community of learners.
It is often the case that a teacher will observe a child planning out his/her day’s activities. The skill in developing one’s own motivation for learning cannot be overstated, and is more apt to happen when all the children are present five to four session days a week.
We are happy to offer extended care! Between the hours of 8:00-9:00am as well as 3:45-4:45pm. Please contact us with any questions!
