The mission of MCHD’s Extended Care Programs is to enrich the lives of children beyond the classroom through safe and supportive Montessori-inspired environments.
Before School Care
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. Advance notice is required for Toddlers only.
The cost of Before School Care enrollment is $660/year, payable over 10 months. For occasional drop-in care, the fee is $4.00/day.
After School Care
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.
