The Extended Day Philosophy
The Extended Day Program was incorporated in 2013 into Pioneer Montessori School’s Primary environments to better serve our children and families in need of extended care during the school day. This “all day” offering provides a nurturing and stimulating environment that continues to honor the child’s social, emotional and cognitive selves. The expanded use of the Primary environments gives children greater range of choice and fewer pressures of time, including the opportunity to evolve naturally into an afternoon work cycle. The Extended Day Program takes advantage of the longer school hours by allowing the child to experience a natural pace, similar to the home environment. Attending school all day allows a child to customize their possibilities and their potential and supports the developmental outcomes that an authentic Montessori education promises.
Program Hours and Calendar
Extended Day services are from 2:30 – 5:30 pm, Monday through Friday, on all regularly scheduled school days. The Extended Day Program will be closed on weekends, government holidays and vacations as identified on the school calendar.
