Before & After School Care Program

Absorbent Minds Montessori School offers an optional Before & After School Care Program for our currently enrolled students. Before school care is available during the hours of 7am – 8am. After school care is available during the hours of 3pm – 6pm. These hours may be adjusted to satisfy demand.

Children taking advantage of Before & After School Care may participate in group games, outdoor play (weather permitting), board games, art activities, story time, etc. The Before & After School Care programs are designed to accommodate working parents. Children who stay for the aftercare program are offered a healthy snack at approximately 4:00pm.

Our purposefully prepared environment draws in each student to engage in meaningful work. All students receive one–on–one lessons, which are individually prepared for each child.10:30am – 11:00amMorning Line TimeClassical music signals to our students Line Time is about to begin. When the music starts our students clean up and take their places on the line.

During our “line” we sing our Good Morning song and welcome each other with a handshake. Then we say the Pledge of Allegiance and sing our Days of the Week & Months of the Year songs to determine the date. We also introduce our monthly/weekly themes and give group Montessori presentations.
