Preschool & Pre-K

Morning Program (8:00am - 11:30am)
Between 8:00 and 8:30 am parents are welcome to join their child in the classroom for a shared activity. At 8:30, the Montessori classroom time begins and children choose from a multitude of activities and projects guided by their teachers. During the morning, there is a community circle, where a teacher leads the children in calendar, songs, movement and occasional special presentations. A healthy morning snack is always available and includes items such as fruit, whole-wheat crackers and hummus, or baby carrots and dip. 

Lunch and Park Play (11:30am - 1:25pm)
Children may also enroll in the lunch and Park Play program (children bring their own lunch). At 11:30am, they eat lunch together followed by clean-up and a story. They then board the MCH “Big Yellow Bus” and head out to a different neighborhood playground or park everyday for outdoor time and free play. 

All Day PreK Program (1:30pm - 3:00pm)
Returning from Park Play, younger children nap, while the four- and five-year olds choose more advanced Montessori activities with special presentations tailored especially for older children.
