The morning class is Monday through Friday from 9 am to 11:45 am. 

The afternoon class is Monday through Friday from 12:45 pm to 3:30 pm.

Children are mixed ages from 3 years to 6 years.  The children work at their own rate and the Directress follows the interest of the child while paying close attention to “The Sensitive Periods.”

The procedure for drop-off and pick-up for the Montessori classes involves entering the drive off 3rd street and pulling all the way around and up to the sidewalk. The staff will come to your car to get your child at this location. Please keep your child in the car until you have come up to the first spot and a staff person is ready for your child. This procedure works very well in helping the child make the transition from the home environment to the school environment. If your child is resisting, crying, etc., we will take your child into the school and call you if it remains a problem. You would be surprised at how quickly they calm down and get involved in activities once they get into the school and see all the other children. We ask that you do not come into the school at this time, as it usually creates disruption of the class. You are welcome and urged to come in for an observation. If you arrive at any times other than the beginning or ending times of either class, you will need to follow the Extended Care procedure. The children are dropped off and picked up at the back door and taken by the parent into the school. Please refrain from pick up during the afternoon rest time between 1:00 pm and 2:30 pm, if at all possible. Please arrive on time and pick up your child on time. Being prompt shows your child that you feel their school is important. It is VERY important that you drive SLOWLY in front of the school. Remember there are children present during arrival and departure times. Do not allow your child to “drive” through the car line. This is extremely unsafe.
