Extended Care

Extended Care - CHMSCathedral Hill Montessori’s Extended Care option offers the flexibility of an All Day Program with extended hours for both toddlers and preschoolers.

The All Day Children’s House is a unique model that supports children (ages 2.5-6) in an authentic Montessori environment. It is a “home away from home” providing a consistent, engaging and inspiring place for children to live out their day, while extending the Montessori learning experience.

Our vision for the Extended Care program is to help children engage in work that captures their interest and imagination, in keeping with a Montessori classroom. We want to provide activities that are familiar to them from their Toddler Community/Children’s House as well as materials that are unique and special to Extended Care. The All Day Children’s House comprises students from both preschool classrooms, so children get the opportunity to make friends and practice socialization outside of their daytime peer group. Children’s House students also have the option to go outside in the afternoon, weather permitting.

Similarly, Toddler Community students begin their extended care inside with a modified work cycle before transitioning outdoors for the afternoon, if possible.

Extended day options are available for Toddlers from 8:00 AM to 5:30 PM, and in the All Day Children’s House from 7:30 AM to 5:30 PM each day.
