Montessori Program Hours

We offer flexible full time options from 9am-3pm and flexible part time options from 9am-12pm, either 2, 3, or 5 days a week for both toddler and preschool classrooms. Toddler and Preschool daycare is available before school from 7:30am-9:00am and after school from 3:00pm-5:30pm, for an additional fee. Our infant room is available from 7:30am-5:30pm for a 5 day a week schedule (flexible scheduling is only allowed on an at-need basis) We do have open enrollment in all of our classrooms at anytime during the school year.

Programs for Toddlers 18 - 36 months

To be a toddler is to be curious, so naturally we encourage the child to explore fully. Activities are positioned around the room, each with a particular theme, skill, or subject of value to toddler development. Imaginative play activities and the learning materials appeal to the curiosity of the child. Outdoor play and daily walks are an important part of the day, as are reading and quiet play. The teachers provide respect, tenderness, and warmth that allow the children to blossom. There is space for physical activity and exploring.
