Before School Care
For the 2014-15 school year, children ages 18 months through 12 years can enroll in Before School Care, offering supervision as early as 7:45 am (8:20 am for Toddlers). Children enjoy free play until they are dismissed to go to their classroom. On rainy or very cold days, students will play inside in one of the classrooms.
For those families not enrolled as daily participants in Before School Care, drop-in care is available for the occasional day when you need to arrive before the normal starting time, as space permits. No advance notice is required.
The cost of Before School Care enrollment is $590/year, payable over 10 months. For occassional drop-in care, the fee is $4.00/day.
After School Care
MCHD is pleased to offer quality After-School care to our families for children ages 3-12. In this home-like, electronics-free environment, students enjoy indoor and outdoor play time, and an opportunity to practice the social aspects of their Montessori education in after-school time.
The program includes lunch and snack times, play, quiet rest, and creative activities in different rooms. We have space for special enrichment classes, as well as a quiet place for older students to read and engage in extended projects. With a full kitchen and beautiful dedicated playground, going to After School continues to be very popular among all ages.
There are a variety of after-school days and pick-up times to choose from in order to fit your family’s schedule. Drop-In Care is available for occasional needs as space permits. MCHD also offers No-School Camp on Teacher Workdays, Parent-Teacher conference days, Orientation Week, and Spring break.
MCHD is pleased to offer all students Early Childhood age and older After School Care until 6:00pm.
Please note there is no After School Care available at this time for children enrolled in the Toddler Program.
