Extended Care

Before and After School Care

We at the Montessori Discovery Garden understand the needs of busy parents, which is why we make before and after school care available to everyone. The regular school day for your Montessori child is from 8:30am until 3:30pm, Monday through Friday. But the hours that the school is open in from 8:00am until 6:00pm, Monday through Friday. So care is available also for your child in the morning at 8:00 am until the school day begins at 8:30am and from 3:30pm until 6:00pm when the school closes. There is no extra fee for this service. You are free to choose as few or as many of the hours that you wish.

Before care includes a quiet start to the school day. Children may enter slowly, help with setting up the classroom, or begin with a work choice from the classroom shelves.

After care activities include free outdoor playtime with all the toys and playground equipment available outside. The indoor play period time is flexible depending on the weather and interest of the children. The children may choose activities from a cupboard filled with traditional toys, blocks, trains, dolls, dress up clothes and most items that you will find in a regular pre-school.
