A large, sun-filled classroom houses the Afternoon Mixed-Age Program, fully equipped with Montessori and teacher-designed materials. This program meets daily from 2:00 p.m. - 5:00 p.m and includes a 6:00 p.m. extended day dismissal option.
The curriculum of this program is identical to that of the Morning Mixed-Age Program with 30-minutes less of independent work time. Families who prefer an afternoon class or who wish to save on tuition costs find our Afternoon Program to be an excellent option.
BASIC PROGRAM: 2:00 p.M. - 5:00 P.M. | $13,158
Class begins at 2:00 p.m. and ends at 5:00 p.m. Organic, nut-free snacks are provided by MMS, and children are taught to listen to their tummies and help themselves to snacks at any time. They often opt to snack with a friend or two, which makes for some interesting conversations at the snack table!
EXTENDED DAY dismissal option: 6:00 P.M. | $15,045
For children needing a slightly longer schedule, we offer a 6:00 p.m. dismissal option. Extended day is designed to be a seamless experience in the daily life of a preschool age child. It should not be thought of as "school."
Families who may only occasionally need to utilize the extended day dismissal option are welcome to do so for $12/day.
Each year, MMS is able to offer a limited number of partial financial aid awards. Funding is provided by the fundraising efforts of Morningside Montessori families. At this time, funds are very limited and we are able to offer small awards to offset a small percentage of total tuition costs.
Morningside Montessori School is partnered with the School & Student Services (SSS) by the National Association of Independent Schools. Families interested in applying for aid will complete an online application on SSS, after which, a Parent Financial Statement (PFS) is generated. Our admissions office redacts and prepares all applications, ensuring privacy and confidentiality. Applications are then submitted for review to the MMS Financial Aid Committee, which is composed of three to four members of Morningside Montessori School's Board of Trustees.
