After School Programs
Lunch and Play 12:00 - 1:30PM
Lunch and Play is offered to students enrolled in the 2 Day, 3 Day, and 5 Day programs and is structured to provide an authentic Montessori experience in a social context. It is a seamless extension of the morning sessions and offers an unique opportunity to the child for getting to know and build lasting friendships with students from other classes.
The children prepare for lunch by preparing the lunch area which can be either in the classroom or, weather permitting, in the beautiful outdoor extension of their classroom. Teachers have lunch with the children and model good table manners, social graces and group etiquette. Children are encouraged to keep track of their time so as to enjoy some group playtime following lunch. When lunch is finished, children clean up and maintain the area, practicing skills they have learned in the classroom and spend some quality time with their friends until pickup.
Enrichment Programs 1:30 - 2:15PM
We also offer a variety of after-school programs to meet specific interests of our students, especially those who are ready for a longer day. We focus on making these programs stimulating and nurturing while promoting hands-on learning. These programs draw on student interest as well as on unique skills teachers bring to the curriculum. Sometimes they build on existing strengths of the students and at other times introduce them to a whole new subject matter. In the past, these programs have included music, Spanish, soccer, science, cooking, as well as academic enrichment.
