before & after school program
The Before Care and After School Program provide a relaxed, comfortable atmosphere for full time students. Children participate in outdoor play, arts and crafts, free playtime and other projects and activities. The program incorporates characteristics of a Montessori environment such as freedom of choice, respect, exploration, movement and consistency. All programs are held at our 158 14th Street location. Children who attend school at our 1485 Bloomfield location are escorted between buildings.
Before Care (7:30 a.m.- 8:30 a.m.)
Available for those children enrolled in the mornings. In Before Care, children will eat their breakfasts, enjoy free play, and ease into their morning.
After School Program (3:15 p.m.- 6:30 p.m.)
The After School Program is available for our full time students. The program provides exposure to materials and activities the child might not otherwise receive in school. Thus, the program should, and does, differ from the school day. We start starting each session with circle time and have children share exciting moments from their day. Weather permitting- children will go outside enjoying free play and organized games.
Vacation Care: February Winter & April Spring Break Care (8:00 am - 5:00 pm)
To better serve our full time working parents, HMS offers optional vacation care during the February Winter Break and April Spring Break. There will be a weekly theme for each break week. Details and registration information will be available during the school year.
The Before & After School Program and Vacation Care are available to HMS students only.
