Extended Day Programs
An important service to the Richmond Montessori School community, the extended day program provides care for our students beyond regular school hours. Montessori Enrichment staff, with their diversity of education and special interests, provides special activities, games, socialization, puzzles, art, music and so much more. A caring atmosphere coupled with the prepared environment provide the structure for each child’s care, guidance and safety. Montessori Enrichment staff carry out the Montessori philosophy of respect for the child, while encouraging independence, creativity and natural curiosity. Extended Day programs are available as an option with your enrollment contract. Please visit “Tuition and Fees” for more information.

Early Arrival: $8; Nap/Rest: $25; Early Childhood Extended Day: $25; School Age: $25; Holiday Package: $100.

Children are escorted to their classrooms when school opens.
11:30 a.m. – 3:05 p.m.
A quiet social lunch is followed by nap (3-year-olds) or rest (4-year-olds). Nappers and Resters enjoy group and outdoor time when they wake up.
Early Childhood Extended Day
3:05 – 6:00 p.m.
Toddler and Primary students enjoy a nutritious snack, special projects, stories, free choice works, and outdoor play. A continuously changing assortment of activities and themes keeps the children engaged and learning.
School-Age After-School Clubs Package
3:05 – 6:00 p.m.
School-age children are released from Montessori Enrichment to an extracurricular clubs package, including Carousel Club, the Hub, and Friday Fun Club. Activities are appropriate to age.
Our new creative spin on this club provides rotating specialities, activities, and themes that promote learning disguised as fun–without sacrificing freedom of choice and social interaction in true Montessori style.
The Hub continues to provide quiet time for older students to complete homework assignments, work on research or study. Creativity, community, and special interests drive the structure of activities once school work is completed. Students are challenged to engage in specialties, long-term projects and meaningful work that compliments their Montessori education.
Friday Fun Club
Friday Fun Club continues to offer unique projects, themed days, out-of-the-box games, creative activities and, as always, loads of wacky fun!
At 5:00 p.m., school-age students join the licensed extended day program at the house for playground time and quiet end-of-the-day activities before pick-up.
8:10 a.m.-6:00 p.m.
Montessori Enrichment offers care on 12 of the days that school is closed. Our staff plans fun themed activities and projects. Usual routines for Nap/Rest apply.
Montessori Enrichment closes promptly at 6:00 p.m.
