If you want your child in a Montessori preschool program, but need more than three hours of care per day, Maison Montessori Childcare Inc. (MMCI) may be the preschool that would suit your child's needs as well as your childcare needs. To help simplify pick-up and drop-off times for those families with older siblings, Maison Montessori coordinates their hours of classroom time with those of elementary school's. For the families who need more hours, please state the days and times of care required on the application form, as we will do our best to consider everyones needs.
As the name suggests, the school is in a home and the children are exposed to the french language. The facility is licensed as a group childcare for eight children, ages 2.5 to 6, and was created to offer what the owner would have loved for her now adult children, when they were little.
For the most part, our school year conforms to the public school year, and observes the same holidays as do the public schools.
While we are licenced to offer a full day of childcare, the Montessori preschool session starts at nine and ends at noon. We break for lunch and outdoor play, weather permitting. Otherwise, MMCI has a large playroom in addition to the classroom, permitting indoor play. While always observing the Montessori philosophy, the rest of the day is usually spent working on special activities like music, physical activities (gymnastics. yoga, dance), special art projects, or napping if necessary.
Please state the days and times of care required on the application form, as everyones needs will be considered and special requests may be approved.
Thank you for your interest.
