Extended Day for 2 years 9 Months - 4 Years (all those children that are not in their 3rd/4th year of the Montessori Primary Program)

extended-day program iconWe have found that three and four year old children benefit from balanced periods of nourishment, rest, and activity in the afternoons. We have designed our program to meet the needs of these young children. Although we maintain the grace, courtesy, and independent spirit of a Montessori classroom, the Extended Day Program continues after the Montessori program ends at 12:00. Teachers plan arts and craft activities, music and movement games, outdoor play time, cooking activities, and more. The following is a brief overview of the afternoons in our program:

  • Outdoor Picnic or Indoor Lunch (depending on the weather)
  • Rest Time - Children may quietly rest, read books, or take a nap
  • Afternoon Activities - Students pick activities from the shelves, such as puzzles, art projects, dramatic play, building materials, etc. Most days, children also have optional art, cooking, music, or movement activities.
  • Outdoor Play - Children play on the playground, dig and plant in the soil, and take frequent nature walks
  • Story Time
  • Dismissal
