enrichment programs

a variety of before/after school enrichment programs offer parents the opportunity to extend their child's montessori experience in both the indoor and outdoor environments


Before and After Care

Available to students ages 3-9 at our school, this program provides parents with peace of mind in knowing that their children are on the Montessori Academy Campus for the entire day with no transitions or transportation issues. 

Before and after-care drop-off and pick-up times are very flexible, including any time between the hours of 7:00 a.m. to 5:45 p.m. In addition to the flexibility, fees for before and after care are very reasonable.

The Before/After Care program is led by Ms. Valerie who has her Bachelor's in Early Education and over 15 years of classroom experience.

The program is a balance of structured activities and free time for them to relax and unwind from their school day. Many afternoons are spent outdoors playing, swinging or tending to the gardens.

Montessori Academy also provides children with access to a variety of after-school enrichment programs:
 

Art enrichment

Ms. Valerie draws from her education in Art History and love of all things art to introduce children to techniques and history through hands-on learning. Children will learn about famous artists and then replicate their technique to create their own masterpiece. This opportunity is offered to children at no additional cost.
 

Yoga

Led by a Montessori trained and Yoga certified instructor, children’s yoga is very playful and full of storytelling and acting like animals. Through this imaginative learning, students practice breathing techniques that help calm the mind, balance poses that build focus, concentration, and body awareness, as well as the joy of yoga and movement.

Yoga is offered once a week for an 8-week session.. Each session begins with a couple of breathing techniques, followed by a warm-up and then into the themes asanas (poses). After the poses, a story related to the weekly theme is read then the session concludes with the final relaxation and breathing techniques.

Spanish

Strong language aptitude and cultural awareness are becoming an increasingly important part of being successful.

Spanish class is offered to students ages 4+ and is operated on-site by an independent organization.

During the 45 -60 minute class and throughout the session, students will learn numbers, the alphabet, parts of speech, expressions, days and months, colors, food, animals, clothes, parts of the body, as well as family and community words in Spanish. This is an opportunity for 6-15 students to have fun learning a very useful language.
