Before Care,Noon Care, and After Care

Before care, offered from 7am to 8:30 am, is a stand alone option and is thus paid for in addition to any other program choice.  This is a time for a “quiet landing” as we call it.  Where a child can enjoy some peaceful time in the classroom with a limited number of other students and settle into their day in a clam and quiet way.  Children are welcome to bring their breakfast so long as it is nut free.

Both Noon care and after care programs are part of our full day school option and can also be stand alone options.

Noon care is an optional LMP program is offered from 11:00am to 1:00pm daily to all children enrolled in either preschool session. It has a small class size, maximum of 10 students/room. Children bring a cold lunch and enjoy a mix of Montessori work time, more traditional preschool activities including dramatic play, gross motor activities, stories, and organized games with their classmates. This program includes rest time for full day students. Families enrolled in the full day option will need to provide a blanket or sleeping bag and pillow for their child as well as a nap mat.

The after care program runs from 3:30-5:30 and is similar to the noon care program minus nap and lunch. Contracted care allows families the flexibility to establish a customized care schedule that is consistent from week to week.

Drop-in care is also available for all three programs on a first-come first-served basis.

Contracted: 1 to 5 days / week $7.00 per hour

Drop-In: When space is available $9.00 per hour

These additional program choices are billed at the end of every month and can be added to your automatic payments.
