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 7:00 am – 7:45 am. Afterschool care is available during the hours of 3:00 pm – 4:00 pm. 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 extend the school day a little bit longer to accommodate working parents to the best of our ability.

Our purposefully prepared environment draws in each student to engage in meaningful work. All students receive one–on–one lesson, which are individually prepared for each child.10:30 am – 11:00 amMorning Line TimeClassical music signals to our students that 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 thematic unit and give group Montessori presentations.
