MONTESSORI EARLY MORNING AND EXTENDED DAY PROGRAMS
WEMS offers extended hours before and after our regular hours. Montessori Early Morning is offered to early childhood and elementary students only. Montessori Extended Day is available to toddler and early childhood/elementary students.
MONTESSORI EARLY MORNING
The morning session is a time of preparation for the day and work time. Upon arrival at the building, please proceed to the classroom where the early childhood/elementary program is held. Please sign your child in at the classroom.
7:45 Children arrive and put belongings in their cubbies, including a cover sheet and blanket brought from home if the child is staying for Extended Day. Parents sign in. Children assist with classroom preparation activities.
8:00 Children begin work time.
8:15 Elementary children go to their classroom.
8:30 Early Childhood children are escorted to their classes by a teacher.
MONTESSORI EXTENDED DAY
All children have a rest time. During rest time quiet music will be played and the children may look at books. After 1/2 hour, those who fall asleep will be able to remain asleep in one area of the classroom, while those who do not fall asleep will get up and begin work time.
Children can be enrolled for any number of days. Payment can be made on an annual contract, monthly contract or on a drop-in basis provided space is available. To enroll, please complete and return a contract for each child attending. You will then be given a statement based on the number of days the student will attend each year. For a full year, there are approximately 130 extended days for toddlers and 170 for early childhood, based on an average number of days per month. Payment can be made bi-annually (10% discount) or monthly (5% discount) on a contract. Spaces will be filled on a first come first served basis. Extended sessions will begin the first full week of school and are closed when school is closed. Please note that there is a $15.00 per 15 minute (or any part thereof) late fee for children picked up after 5:30pm. For children staying from 12:30-3:00, a $15 charge is assessed annually for a school-issued rest mat. No credits are given for missed days due to illness or inclement weather.
