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.
As mentioned above we are licensed as a group childcare which permits all the families to receive full benefits offered by the government to the highest dollar value available. The Montessori preschool session starts at nine o'clock and ends at noon. While always observing the Montessori philosophy, special activities such as music/drama, physical activities (gymnastics. yoga, dance), art projects are woven into this time as well. We break for lunch and outdoor play - weather permitting. Otherwise, MMCI has a large playroom in addition to the classroom, permitting indoor play. The rest of the day is spent working quietly on individual activities until three o'clock 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.
