5-Day Afternoons Programs

We are still accepting applications for our 5-Day Afternoons Program for the 2013-2014 school year.

 

Our PM Program is very much like our Five Morning Program and is offered as an alternative for children for whom afternoons work better. It begins at 1:45pm and goes until 4:45 daily. Children may be picked up at that point or may go to our After School Center up until 6:00pm.

 

 

Five Afternoon (PM) Program

Our Five-Day programs are for 3-5 year old children. Our mixed age classrooms are founded on Montessori principles. Clearly defined work areas follow the five Montessori areas:

Sensorial

Practical Life

Math

Language

Cultural

 

Our program highlights the importance of peer relationships and the time needed to understand social negotiations. Our educators facilitate children find their interests and pursue them through extended work time and over multiple exposures to that learner. We weave together following  a child’s interest with core NYS Standards in preparing children for Kindergarten to be lifelong pursuers of knowledge.
